For those of you that didn't get to see the game, man can this kid fly! I noticed it in these two AB's right here.

The first one was a routine two-hop DP ball to the 2nd baseman. It was a clean throw to second and the SS put a little something on the throw to first and Willie still beat it out.

The second one was basically a swinging bunt that rolled a few feet in front of the plate. The catcher got to the ball quickly and made a good throw but once again, Willie beat it out. I think they are going to have a hard time sending him down.

Yea, I think the only thing keeping him off the team is the fact that Simmons probably wouldn't clear waviers...

And the fact that they would lose the waiver fee they paid to sign him.Don't rule out a deal being made for a starting pitcher though.Durham would spark some interest.
