5/17 Extra bases

Justin Ruggiano will begin a Minor League rehab assignment Monday with Triple-A Iowa, joining the team when it faces Round Rock. He’s been sidelined because of a hamstring strain. However, Ryan Sweeney took a step back, according to manager Rick Renteria, and he’s not close to starting a rehab assignment. Sweeney also is out with a hamstring strain.


This entire team & organization is taking a “Step Backward” this year.

What is it you expect while the Organization is waiting on youngsters to arrive?
How many players on the current roster ( dead weight ) , waiting on those youngsters?
My only complaint is: Sometimes Management waits too long trading a player, trying to get MAX return. Barney is a example: I stated after his GG season, his value would never be higher. Schierholtz there was interest in last year. Garza would have been traded sooner, but incurred injury. Schierholtz and Barney are now almost worthless.
Next year there will be many names on the current roster that will not be here. Its like the flu, it will get worse before it get better.

Schierholtz had good value last year……..and remember Bryan LaHair great start and his decline !…..for Garza, the first trade in 2012 was Perez & Olt…..now Perez will have TJ surgery.

I disagree, Jasper. I know we are rebuilding and will not realistically compete for a ring, but I also know we do not need to settle for incompetence and futility. We have not only the worst record in the NL, we have the most pathetic winning percentage in all the major leagues now. Even lowly Houston has a better record. That`s unacceptable. I shall not tolerate that without speaking out, and my guess is many other fans feel likewise.
