....Reed bounced right back against the heart of the lineup with a clutch save
Now about DWise base running blunders x 2. It really makes no sense to me to have him playing CF over Danks. We know what Wise can do (or not do). Why not see what Danks can do with regular playing time.
It would also be nice to have a right handed OF to spell DeAza, Danks, and Wise against lefties
Agreed. I'd like to see the W/L record for when Jordan Danks made an appearance last year and this year. I remember one time last year he had a walk off game winner ( I think it was HR ) and the next day was back at AAA. I think this kid can play, let him. Reminds me of Bill Sharp but better.
