Can We Get Rid of Julian Tavarez, Please?

Nice win by the Junkees behind Wang and Charlie Brown. Ump had a big strike zone, but anyway....

The Red Sox signed Tavarez, and he's been awful. Every time I watch Baseball Tonight and I see him in there I know it's a bad sign. Yes he's a power pitcher, but come on. With his 5.83 ERA, he ought to be in there only in 8-0 blowouts. Comes in last night with a 2-1 and can't shut the door. Gives up a grand slam and goodbye sole possession of first place.

You can't tell me that you'd do worse with a guy from AAA. You might not do better, but you won't do worse.

Last year, TAVAREZ beaned Mike Piazza, after Piazza came back from the DL & after Mike homered.

Tavarez is just an average player

Worse than average, unless your idea of average is giving up a homer every single time you take the ball.
