Congrats Wrigley on the call to Montgomery. It was well deserved. Keep crushing the ball.ReplyDelete
Sorry to see it at the expense of Fields though. Guess someone had to take the bump, but not sure why they chose Fields. Welcome back to Charlotte buddy.
I feel the same way as you, Jim. I know both of these players personally, and, let's just say the promotion is bittersweet.ReplyDelete
fields was sent down so he can work on switch hittingReplyDelete
Wrigley desrved that promotion hands down. the 23 year old is making his mark throughout the tampa bay "devil" rays system. great addition to any team they put him on.ReplyDelete
