XP and BW-Welcome Additions!

Some discussion went on when J-Rod was send sent back and Brandon Wood was picked up. Similar discussions occurred when Bowker was designated for assignment and Xavier Paul was grabbed. Let’s look at the results.

Wood has filled in well at 3B and SS. He is hitting .292/.370/.787. He has done the job.  His fielding seems fine. Would you prefer J-Rod filling in while Pedro has been hurt? So IMHO, he has helped the team more than J-Rod would have.

XP has also done well. Filling in for Tabata, he is hitting .316/.381/.802. He also has 2 SB, providing some speed. Lastly, Bowker cleared waivers and hence is still with the team.

So, I’d call both pickups wins and say “Good job NH!”
