I think Williams has a little bit of time, but it is hard to ignore what Brault has done in the month of May, his past two starts especially.

How concerned is the organization about declining attendance and how much more it could potentially drop before the end of the season should team continue to flounder and play below .500 baseball?
Bill Brink

They're always concerned about attendance because it plays a big role in revenue and what they can do going forward. I have to imagine, though, that the baseball ops guys at least are concerned about improving the team, which should improve the attendance.

Sorry late to the show, any word on Austin Meadows? He's heating up in AAA and I don't care if I ever see Jaso play again.

He's doing much better this month. Huntington said he was trusting his natural ability rather than trying to do too much and drive his numbers up.

Thanks for great chat. Jaso hitting over .250 by June 20 or so? I say yes. Still has that give a darn look in his game!
Bill Brink

He'll get the at-bats to do so, and I think he's slowly improving after a rough start.

Are there any legit stats that prove Jaso is better than Bell at first? It makes me question Hurdle's intelligence.
Bill Brink

Using defensive runs saved with this small of a sample size is risky, but Bell is at plus-2. Jaso hasn't played enough first base for his minus-1 to hold any water.

Cutch Monstor Season now a nightmare as he is now hitting at the Mendoza Line. When will Hurdle drop him down in the order?

Have to think those conversations are being had. It's going on two months now, plus four months last year.
That's it for today, thanks for all the great questions. We'll do it again next week.
