He clearly didnt earn it. Come again. Moved what goal posts? He didnt earn it in ST. If the manipulation part of the service time is what you think im moving the goalposts about I think that played a small part but it clearly wouldnt have mattered if he pitched well in ST. To think there was pressure on Elias because baseball dorks at BSL and his mom were angry and influenced him. Thats a funny take and a bad one.
But now he did earn it with his first AAA start eh?
Yeah, it was just the dorks at BSL (speak for yourself btw), and his mom. Definitely not the national media calling it out (which MLB Network did) and other publications. He got some bad press for the move, just facts. Mako makes a point, the history suggests he doesn't give a damn what anyone thinks, but it still makes me wonder sometimes.
Nothing was done between the decision to send him down, and now to make you feel better about this. I think they were being greedy with service time and it was a terrible look and this is a course correction.
With me saying all of this - I truly hope you are somehow able to still enjoy your day even with a soul over here in Bethesda being critical of your team, lol. So ridiculous. If only you knew how silly this was.
