Manager Trey Hillman indicated Getz will reclaim his job as the starting second baseman, which figures to shift Alberto Callaspo to third base and Alex Gordon to the bench.

I guess I'll hold back on being insanely critical of this move until we see just what "Gordon to the bench" means. You know, because Hillman uses the bench so much...

This is a gigantic mistake. I'm starting to wonder what the point of getting excited about the prospects in the minors is. One, this leadership group has shown no ability to develop advanced players at the AAA/MLB level. None. Guys simply rot and regress. Two, even if a few sneak through the cracks of incompetence, they're still going to be surrounded by garbage.
