I think the guy's been a flat-out disappointment since they got him. But perhaps bringing him up mite bring out his talents.I tend to think they like McKenna more, but he's no more than a 4th or 5th outfielder because he won't hit enough.If Santander is hurt, and it appears he may be, try Diaz. It's not like they have anything much to lose.

Give him a shot. It's not like he's going to cost us the pennant if he sucks.

They promoted McKenna as I expected. I know Diaz has been a disappointment, made worse by the fact that he's the main acquisition in what is becoming a disastrous Manny deal.But I think the Orioles s/bring him up. He could be a cog. McKenna is no more than a speck.

McKenna is not ready for the big leagues.

He had a big season in A ball. That's it. He needs more seasoning.

My question is.....would Diaz even still be in the system if not for the fact he was the featured face in the Manny trade? What has he shown to indicate he is ready for the prime time?

You're right. He hasn't shown much, but he's shown more than McKenna. Thye're running out of time to see if he's a player or not.And finally, they aren't winning anyway.

McKenna .264/.350/.387 at age 24.
U-Snail .278/.355/.440 at age 24.

The Snail has him by a smidge. A little more than a smidge at AA, which is their highest level. It could be that they don't care about starting McKenna's service clock.

The computer in my head rusts for another year of minor league stats to refresh with. It's like a broken interface, and nobody is answering the phone at the other end.

Last summer's draftees have no data whatsoever. How'n hell can we miserize properly without ANYTHING?
