This has been an interesting month what with dog issues, fall seasons getting started and my teaching career beginning (how scary is that?), so I'm the first to admit I haven't been paying attention as much as I did during the summer.
That will not, of course, keep me from throwing out an opinion.
If the final month of the season is indeed a time that could be consider an audition, it seems Bonifacio could become the odd man out.
I am convinced they're only going to keep two of the three-headed monster on the 25-man next season. It seems to me that Anderson Hernandez' performance merits serious consideration. Maybe he ought to be the regular second baseman. Gonzalez offers versatility as a backup middle infielder for both spots (and Harris can do that, too, assuming he's still around).
So is it back to AAA for Bonifacio? And did I actually keep the three of them straight?
Also, I just "loved" this quote in the Post's notebook done by not Chico about Flores (disappointing) and Young (shocker) probably being done for the year.
"If it happens, it happens," Young said of returning to action. "If it doesn't, I'm not going to lose sleep."
I guess not, thanks to that huge and ridiculous contract. Young was a great story - last year. I really hope the team just cuts him his check and moves on next year. He's become a gigantic distraction.
