    Finley loved that kind of shit. His first pinch runner deluxe was Allan Lewis, aka the Panamanian Express. Only batted 29 times in 6 yrs.

    If you listen to the play by play, Vin almost called it before it happened.

    Haha, I love that every time I see it. And there's something to be said about a speedster with no baseball instincts.

    Gore is not that. Gore was a HS baseball standout, and while he's never panned out as an every day player, he has over 2000 AB's between the minors and majors. He's a real ballplayer, not just a track star.

    i was actually at that game with my dad
    only ws game i've ever attended
    transistor radios blaring vinny’s play-by-play throughout the stadium
    when marshall picked him off the place went absolutely nuts
    still the loudest collective roar i’ve ever heard
    and still gives me goosebumps

    Terrance Gore was reportedly seen running the bases at Dodger Stadium.

    Roberts said “good chance he’s on the roster”. Gimme that 2015 Royals juju

    makes sense though with the million position players, he’s more useful than a Beaty/McKinstry

    he’s a really good runner, but probably not as fast as before

    I'm not going to make a prediction on the roster, but I AM going to be annoyed at how little Edwin Rios plays.

    Floro, Lux, and Wood didn’t make it, Beaty/Gore/Kelly/Ruiz did

    pretty wild! Only one I’m rather upset about is Kelly over Floro, Kelly’s a disaster. But Lux/Wood haven’t looked good at all, Ruiz makes Barnes more useful, and hoping Beaty/Gore are useful

    Watching the Reds/Braves in at least the 13th inning, and knowing Dave's propensity to burn through the pen, wouldn't an extra arm (Floro) be of more value than a third catcher? I know injuries can happen and it's good to have insurance behind the plate, but really, think about the years with Roberts as manager - how many times did we run out of catchers vs how many times has the pen been emptied?

    Has to be all about keeping Smith's bat in the lineup, either as catcher or DH.

    That makes sense. I forgot that you couldn't (technically "wouldn't") move your DH into the field if the need arose.
