    Minor will be sent down to AAA by noon tomorrow. Bank on it.

    I’m opening an account at the Bank of Steve.

    Judging from Fredi’s postgame comments on ajc.com, it sounds like he’s not planning at all to send Minor to Gwinnett. I think this could mean one of two things:

    1) Fredi really has no plans to send Minor to Gwinnett.

    2) Fredi is completely clueless about Wren’s plans to send Minor to Gwinnett.

    Based on Fredi’s previous cluelessness regarding Larry Parrish getting fired and thinking Beachy’s elbow would be fine after only a week or two, I’m leaning towards #2. At least, I really hope this is the case.

    Here’s what we learned about Fredi from last season: Whatever Fredi says in post-game interviews usually turns out just the opposite :)

    With JJ’s great outing last start, it’s going to take about three of those starts back-to-back for me to be convinced that the JJ of old is back.

    But at least JJ didn’t come out and do a KK on us, so that’s at least encouraging.

    Jo Bu, I imagine you as someone who swills 140 proof whiskey straight from a bottle that was filled from a still full of glory that was brewed by you and you alone. Is this close to accurate? Lying is not frowned upon.

    I agree with #129, hell, I might need to see double what you laid out. If he’s really on I think you can bank on about a 1/2 season of quality before he starts the other half of his routine again. Even Scott Boras might find JJ to be a hard sell, but then again, this is baseball. There is no place for logic. The All-Star game determines home-field advantage in the World Series, don’t ‘cha know’?
