Why is Brent Lillibridge still with this team?

He is pathetic.

Can someone please explain to me why Juan Diaz is not up here right now?

No one can seriously think that Lillibridge should be on this team next year.  Not only is he bad but that would require that he occupy a roster spot all winter, something that for a small market team is unthinkable: expose another player to the Rule 5 draft to protect a AAAA guy who is a dime-a-dozen and can signed to a minor league deal any day.

While Diaz may not be completely ready, he is already on the 40 man roster and actually HAS a future in the majors.  He should waive to Lillibridge on the way up as Lillibridge is on the way down.

C'mon, Antonnetti.  The tryout is over and Lillibridge sucks.  Dump him and bring up Diaz!
