The thing I find most impressive is his professionalism
In the Times,
Baker Romero writes about McLaren and that last roster spot (or two):
“Everyone of these guys has impressed us some way or another.”
McLaren has had a meeting about team needs and how the roster is shaping up. He said he and the coaches broke down each candidate and what he can bring to the team. McLaren also didn’t rule out GM Bill Bavasi searching the waiver wire for a player.
What in the world has Miguel “I can’t believe it’s not Bloomquist” Cairo done to impress anyone? He’s no defensive wiz, he’s hitting .269 with an awesome .269 OBP, he only has one RBI despite leading the team in at-bats… meanwhile, they’re waffling on whether they might carry another bat that can play first in Morse… or carry 12 pitchers?
