  1. 1. Should Valbuena be DFA'd right now?



Recommended Posts

Yes.  It's time to make some changes.  

DFA LVB put JMF at 3b

Call up Thaiss and DFA Fontana.

Put Fletcher at SS and let Cozart ride the pine at a util guy.  

DFA Johnson and Bedrosian.  Call up Jeremy Rhoades and Jake Jewell

Send Blash down and try someone else in RF like Ackley or Liriano.  Because why not?  

The worst that could happen is that Trout has a different audience watch him hit solo hrs.

Yes, he should be, regrettably.  I mean it's clear he's a clubhouse favorite, and he can still hit, it just isn't consistent enough.  But if we'r going to DFA Valbuena, we can't stop there. 

DFA Valbuena, call up Thaiss.

DFA Marte, Fletcher is already up.

DFA Fontana, call up Ward. 

DFA Drake, bring up Jewell. 

DFA Bedrosian, bring up Rhoades. 

Basically, our lineup should be: 2B Kinsler, CF Trout, LF Upton, DH Fernandez, 1B Thaiss, 3B Ward, RF Blash, C Maldonado, SS Fletcher.  5/9 of those players started this year in AAA, but that just shows how bad Valbuena, Marte, Pujols, Cozart, Young and Calhoun have been and just how good our prospects have performed.

He’s hitting .233 so he obviously can’t still hit.

DFA him and then plant drugs in his locker.

They should do that to Pujols so he gets suspended & the Angels don't have to pay him for those games he's suspended for, then it would be easier to talk Arte into buying Pujols out so Ohtani can full time DH next season.

Like when the Yankees saved a ton of money by A-Rod testing positive.

Its more than just DFA Valbuena that needs to be done:

1. Change our philosophy of hitting, just can't go up there trying to pull the ball everytime. Besides trout and Simmons, nobody else goes up the middle or right.

2. I'm done with Pujol's hitting in the top 4, unless he starts working counts, TAKING WALKS and using RF, move him down to the 6th or 7th spot. I've given him enough chances, but he hasn't done jack since signing with us.

4. DFA Valbuena and give the job to JMF

5. Get Blash amd Young out of here!!

6. Maldo needs to work on his pitch calling a bit more.

Ackley or Liriano are good options

On the play he was thrown out yesterday I didn't see eonugh hustle from him. I'm tired of that bat flip, those 2 seconds that he spends doing that and contemplating the baseball are what make the difference in bang bang plays. Besides, the guy doesn't know how to hit to LF or even up the middle.

Start Fletcher on third, and JMF on first! Let's get a win today
