Some quick facts:
-Kila Ka'aihue is hitting .267/.405/.466 in Omaha.
-Our DH is often a catcher. Our catchers can't hit.
-Jordan Parraz has hit a cumulative .351/.435/.551/.986 this year in the Minors including .303/.351/.455 in a short stay in Omaha so far. His career Minor League numbers are .294/.381/446
-Jose Guillen is hitting .245/.317/.371 this year while playing insanely bad RF defense good for a -18.2 UZR. Yes, that's a -36.1 UZR/150 pace.
-Chris Hayes a 1.89 ERA this year between AA and AAA. His AAA ERA is 3.00. His season FIP is 3.18, and in Omaha, it's 3.16.
-I can't make this short enough to avoid wasting words trying to express how bad our bullpen is. Everyone knows. Let's try it this way--Kyle Farnsworth would be the second best member of the bullpen, but he's injured.
Now to be clear, the purpose of this post is not exactly about screaming, "Let's call these guys up right now!" because I don't think there's any chance at all that Parraz will replace Guillen as the everyday right fielder in 2009, and I'm not even sure it would be the right move. Rather, this post is about asking the simple question, "How much better would the team be if these adjustments were made?"
