Both aren't that great but it's better to have Hector getting regular AB's in the minors.

He's not getting regular AB's in Fresno. Not sure what's the plan or he's injured.

Johnny Monell is on a tear right now so he's getting the bulk of the playing time at catcher.

My point is Sanchez is getting way more ABs in Fresno than he would on the big club.

Through 11 games he only has 10 more AB's in Fresno than he did In SF. That's not way more.
Anyone else losing faith in Kontos?

I personally think Hector is a more valuable hitter than Quiroz, and they both aren't as good defensively as advertised. So bring Hector back, gain another switch hitter, and have a better chance of getting on base. Quiroz may have a little more power, but he can't hit anything consistently.

Hector is better but they probably want him getting ABs and Quiroz is adequate for a backup and can deal with less ABs.

For what? Backups are there to play and help win games when they are in...its not like we are trading one of them. Its about playing the best players. We are solved at catcher for the future. Quiroz is almost a guaranteed out errytime

Yes. Last year he mixed his pitches better with better command. This year he is hitable and lacks command. Machi is better, Chad G is awesome

I personally think it's b******t Sanchez got sent down, he was with us ALL last year.... came up with some big hits.
It didnt make sense after all that to send him down. I agree with you, just trying to figure out why they did it. I guess boch wanted a veteran.
is this kickham guy any good?

I think it had something to do with his shoulder injury. He was sucking ass when he was here.

I did at first, but is it still bothering him? If so it makes sense.

He only appeared in 11 games/32 games played while he was up with 20 ABs while he's appeared in 10 games in 20 played with 30 ABs in Fresno. He already has 10 more ABs in 12 less games.

From the scouting reports I've read he has a ceiling as a back end of the rotation starter. Hopefully he'll get a good start in tonight because we need it.

6+ innings and 3 runs or less is what we need
