It's probably not fair to them, but I want to see what the kids have to offer.
There is no point in having Eddie Kunz waste innings in AA when he hasn't given up a run this month. This month in 11.1 Innings he's given up 5 hits, 1 walk, 8 strikeouts, and has a GB/FB ratio of 5.50 . His work against Lefties seems to be much improved. Why not give him a shot?
Jon Niese has pitched very well for Binghamton and now New Orleans and deserves a shot if Maine is to miss any time.
No reason why Carp, Murphy, Parnell, or even F-Mart can't get a cup of coffee either.
As I see it we have at least 3 useless roster spots with Marlon Anderson, Robinson Cancel, and Carlos Muniz right now, and could be 4 if Maine needs to go on the DL. Time to replace these guys with the in-house options and see if they can help this team win.
