Welcome to the show, Slade Heathcott!

As Zippy Zappy pointed out on Twitter, I did just post that Slade Heathcott deserved a call-up. Well, Jacoby Ellsbury hurts his knee, hits the DL, and next thing I know, it's Heathcott getting the call.

I'm very surprised he was the choice over Ramon Flores, but I gotta say, I'm excited. I hope he can come bring some miuch-needed energy to a bit of a slumping team.

Moreso, I'm just happy for Mr. Heathcott. He was a 1st round pick, battled numerous injuries, not to mention many personal and family issues while he was growing up. At one point, he was living in his truck. Now he's a big leaguer, and it's hard not to be happy for him. I know he'll appreciate it.

Good luck, Slade Heathcott! 


  1. I went and read more about him. Interesting stuff. Hopefully he has a nice debut.

  2. It's hard to go wrong with a guy named Slade.
