Stock Trader: Call up Franklin Gutierrez

Look, I’m tired of typing this, and I am incredibly tired of seeing him tear up Triple A pitching and not getting a chance. Trust me, I already hear the naysayers, he can’t stay healthy and will get hurt eventually. But I don’t see that as a deterrent to why he shouldn’t come up, if anything I see that as another reason to call him up. The Mariners’ won’t be leaning on him or relying on him, they will simply be milking out every last ounce of quality baseball that he has left in him.

The James Jones experience has been an absolute train wreck, and all Franklin Gutierrez keeps doing is knocking the cover off the baseball. He’s batting a scorching .326 in his last ten games, and is continuing to hit right handed pitching, as his batting average for the season against righties is .345. And for those who don’t know, the M’s sit dead last in that category in the MLB hitting just .227. I’m tired of typing this, and I really hope that I am not next week, because I can’t help but think of how much he could help this team.
