  1. DirtbagFan says:

    Is Brignac even close to being ready to come up? If noodle-arm Bartlett can't fix his "aching" arm, is it possible they call him up? And if Bartlett's arm is sore after just 1/10 of the schedule how on earth is he gonnna make it through the rest? If he continues to have injury issues with his arm does Johnson fill in?

    I need answers!

  2. The Professor says:

    probably not. but with Zobrist on the DL, if Bartlett cant do it, Brignac is the only other option.
