    I can't believe they gave up on Francis real quick.

    Can Almonte ACTUALLY play, Mr. Girardi?

    Almonte is ACTUALLY a good ball player. The problem is that when Almonte was recalled last year, he played a considerable number of games before he got hurt and went on the DL for the rest of the year. This year, he has played so sparingly, he hasn't had a chance to get his groove on. If given the opportunity to play, he will be a solid .275 to .280 hitters.

        the focus here is on baseball not smack…if you want to talk smack, you'll find some Facebook groups that do so…

    I don't know if Almonte can play but all stats indicate Francis can't pitch.

    I would have preferred to have held onto Solarte and moved Almonte…
