I can't wait until there's a week of transactions (or lack thereof) that doesn't make me feel like it's Spring Training.

Franklin has got to think he hit the jackpot.... collecting an MLB paycheck for doing absolutely nothing.

Zagurski must have bought doughnuts for the clubhouse this morning.

Edit: Orf gets the start, hitting 6th tonight.

He was a first round pick in 2009 so he shouldn't be poor. He has 2.147 years of service time according to B-R.com; figuring a minimum salary of $500K and a signing bonus of ~$1M when he was drafted, he's made about $2M playing pro ball, or an average of a little over $200K/year.

Which is all really sad, because he stinks.

Cant wait to see him and Sogard get DFA'd. Zigurski and his career 7.00+ ERA can go too....

Great to see Orf get his chance. After tailing off for a month or so, he's been raking again the last 10 days or so with 2 HR just yesterday. Brewers need offense. Even though they split, the Reds, a last place team, had much the more fearsome lineup especially without Cain and Yelich. I personally don't think he'll be in over his head, even though he's only 5'8". He was undrafted out of Baylor. That he's made it this far speaks volumes.

Per TomH
Nate Orf said was offered $1,000 to sign as undrafted free agent. He said, "I will sign for Snickers bar." Next thing he knew, offer dropped to $500.

I saw Orf play in Arizona this spring. He certainly looked like he belonged. Love the guys that overcome the odds. He might want to thank Aguilar for drilling that point home.

I'm not expecting miracles from Orf, but what I do like is the .388 (.393 if including winter league) OBP that he has. Who knows how it'll translate to the majors, but it's 100+ points better than Perez/Arcia have been this year. In case of Perez, it's even 100 points above his career numbers. And in case anyone was wondering, Perez had a .308 OBP in the minors.

Plus, I love underdogs. Undrafted free agents making it to the majors is great to see.

Great vision on the base paths too. 20/21 on stolen base attempts this year in Colorado Springs.

Milwaukee Journal Sentinel: Here's the origin of #FreeNateOrf

https://jsonl.in/2KOmhgu

"Dustin Pedroia doesn't have the strength or bat speed to hit major-league pitching consistently, and he has no power......He probably has a future as a backup infielder if he can stop rolling over to third base and shortstop." Keith Law, 2006

What are you going to do with all that internet money they gave you for the interview?

That was the first Twitter hashtag use. But who was the first person here to say, "Free Nate Orf"? I tried the Search function, but only goes back a little over a year.
