I posted the moves I would make on Lonnie Wheeler's blog and I want to know what you think.
I just want to say first and foremost that I think this season is dead and I think the next season I think we will play over .500 ball will be 2009. That is why in my moves they are designed to give younger players more playing time.
Trade Lohse. He won't be back, and he just isn't performing well enough that we should keep Doumatrait in the minors.
Release Moeller. I don't care about him. He's just taking up space on the roster, where we could have extra room so we don't have to demote young players like Bray, Keppinger, and Hopper. Not to mention the veterans Majewski, and Eddie Guardado.
Designate Juan Castro for assignment, and release him. His defense is not better than that of Paul Janish, not to mention Janish might actually have a future.
On another note, can anybody give me an update on Miguel Perez? I would have liked to see him up here as a third catcher if we need one. His hitting isn't much if at all worse than Chad Moeller. He also plays superior defense, and I have heard him compared to Yadier Molina.
