I could see a Davisless team inviting him to ST to take a shot at it.

I could also see them signing some washed up turd, with which to block him.

However, he represents the possibility of something possibly nearly ready in our system.

He seems to hold more promise at this point than Walker.

Walker might have gotten dinged, but I don't remember.

Walker showed great promise at Bowie last year. In 95 games, he had 20 HR, 77 RBI, .367 OBP and a .301 BA. He's done poorly at Norfolk. I think Mancini needs to see triple A pitching before we can say how promising he really is.

We'll likely need a first baseman next year. They s/move Mancini up to at least get an idea of what he can do.

Walker has an .884 OPS for the last 28 days. Maybe he's starting to get it? He's only 24.

It's not that Walker's bad, but he started slow in AAA and Mancini's just been on a scalding tear this year. They're not far apart in age, IIRC. With Mancini there appears to be higher contact rate & better power. Walker historically has the more independent OBP.

Walker's a pretty close year older. Both have Reyes breathing down their wheelchairs.

Mancini to Norfolk and if he does well give him a ST invite. The experience would probably be a plus, and with it being doubtful Davis returns, we could get a clue as to whether he could help at first base at some point next year.
