Keep preaching that this a championship caliber team cash...
I like Cervelli, but with the bat, he is garbage. He won't cut it as a starter. Fully expecting to see Romine start. If not I'll be pissed we already got to deal with a ******** 189 payroll
I'm fine with that.
Guys, the issue with Romine is his back. Back issues zap a hitter's power (see Don Mattingly) and for a catcher they're usually career ending. Romine lost almost all of last season to back surgery.
Cashman wants to see if his back holds up before ensconcing him on the major league roster. Makes sense.
If he's healthy, he'll be our catcher. At least until Sanchez is ready. Or traded.
If the team thinks he's the best option they have they should start him in the majors. What does it matter if he injures his back in the minors or the majors? If he gets injured you move onto the next scrap heap guy.
Romine sucks. We need to get someone. Period.
I still cant think of 1 good reason Pierzynski wasn't signed.
