The Mac Williamson Plan
He hit 2 bombs yesterday and the internet jizzed itself.
I like the kid too but he has nearly no shot to make the club out of spring training. MAYBE if Pagan gets injured earlier than usual he slides on to the team in a platoon role. But I hope that doesn’t happen.
He’s played exactly 54 games at AAA and hitting .249 at that level doesn’t exact qualify you for a semi-regular big league job.
He’ll start the year at AAA as planned and get as many at bats in as possible before Pagan gets hurt (or released).
But it’s exciting to think we might finally have a home grown outfielder who won’t be a proud member of The Bowker Gang…….
So what would that make him? A proud member of The Chili Davis Gang? The loneliest gang of them all……
Editor note: Chili was drafted by the Giants in the 11th round of the 1977(!) draft….
