I know Campana did not set the world afire but I sure would have rather seen Mather sent down or released and have kept Campana for late inning defense, pinch running, sac bunts and of course the occassional infield single. Mather over Campana…eh….

Ha! Another good one Mamma. Maybe Campana can pitch too?

I know, but his usefullness as just a pinch runner and defensive outfielder would be better served than Mather who has no skills that stand out. I don’t think he is known as a defensive wizzard in the outfield or at 3B and he certainly isn’t hitting the robust .250- .260 Campana can. Not an issue, just fillin’ space…
