Austin apparently hurt in Tampa win

By

UTIL Ronnie Mustelier (foot) has been activated off the Triple-A DL. I wonder if we’ll see him take some reps at third base in the coming days/weeks. IF Matt Antonelli was released (again) to make room on the roster.

    You know back in my time players didn’t make up shit injuries, they’d just play ball with two broken arms to help their teams win. Be a man, Austin

  2. Will says:

    Montgomery is just too good for minor league hitters.

  3. Bernard says:

    I hope there’s nothing seriously wrong with Tyler. He’s been spectacular this year.

  4. RkyMtnYank says:

    I can’t see Mustelier as a real option at third given the way Nix has played, he’s been just fine so far.

    • Nick says:

      No reason they can’t have both here. Make 3B a three headed monster. Remember, Nix is also the backup SS. I’d rather have him continue to fill that role while Mustelier takes some of his reps at 3B than see a Nix-Pena left side of the infield.

  5. Nice Scheister says:

    Safe! I thought.

    • Nice Scheister says:

      Damn. Was supposed to be on the game thread. Fail, as is my next comment. I’ll sit the next couple plays out.

  6. Nice Scheister says:

    Who would win if Bobby V and Joey G went 12 rounds?

    • Jack says:

      Joe, and I don’t think it goes 12 rounds.

      • GT Yankee says:

        Joe G. is cut up-Maybe the best physical condition of any MLB manager….My guess is Bobby as scrappy as he is would be toast.

        • Charles in SD says:

          Bobby V. would be toast, he is probably in the 5’6″ range. I visit his restaurant in my hometown whenever I’m back east, and I saw him a few times back in the ESPN days. Girardi probably isn’t that much taller, but he’s jacked.

  7. Brian S. says:

    Dammit Nunez! Quit making errors so you can come back and provide clutch hits!

  8. Deep Thoughts says:

    Yes it was *that* Mark Prior throwing a scoreless inning against SWB.

  9. Robert says:

    Just bring up Laird, thats what he is there for. Find out now if he is a MLB 3B player and if he is not we move on.

    Come on with the lead we have now is the time to test out some youth!
