Thoughts On Trading D’Arnaud, Plawecki’s Projectability, and Targeting Corey Hart

Thoughts from Joe D. I wanted to chime in on a post that appeared here yesterday.

I thought that he would serve no purpose on this team and that he was wasting space in a Triple-A rotation. I made comments akin to, “This is exactly the reason no other Triple-A affiliate […]
