Flowers has been disappointing, but he needs more than a month to show whether he belongs or not. This team isn't going anywhere. They might as well audition him.
Just looked it up. Yes, he's been pretty awful.
Yes, but you see - 5 weeks of cold Tyler Flowers is enough to call for his head. 5 weeks of a hot AAA catcher is enough to anoint him the starter.
While we're at it, get this "Jim Gallagher" character up here, too! He's hot! Never mind that he's 27 and has stunk it up in AAA prior to these 83 at-bats!
Get Jason Berken in this rotation now! Or at least as a long man! So what if he has stunk it up in the majors - he just needed a change of scenery!
Baseball fans! Ignoring organizational depth guys for decades!
