“A Feel Thing”
Tomahawk Take Editor Note: Reports from out west are that Eric O’Flaherty has been progressing well over the last few weeks and may be ready to get the promotion to the bigs shortly. The Braves need some bullpen help, Oakland seems to be doing fine with what they have right now…
1. I have been following EO’s rehab outings via Twitter and he’s gotten nothing but praise.
2. We need bullpen help (or so they tell me).
3. What does that mean, a “feel thing”. Is that EO’s feel on his pitches? Or the A’s front office “feel”ing ready to alter their first place team’s chemistry.
My initial thought is that he’s ready, and the front office is just keeping him in the minors until they need him. You know who needs him? THE BRAVES. WE NEED HIM.
