What the hell are they thinking? Why have the kid listed as Hartwell's backup and not use him? What like "Ok Jordan, your
Ed's backup, and this is why we drafted you to be Ed's back up, and since your his backup, we even have you as Ed's backup on the depth chart, so now if Ed is not in the line up then your...uh...er...hmmm... Going to be Keith's backup, now thats why we drafted you so you can be the MLB's backup...er... No matter who we plug in there, your definately going to be the #1 backup......"

Whats up with that? either you put him in and let him learn trial by fire or you give up on him, blow his confidence, and relegate him to back of the bus. Jordan, is a team player and will not complain. But He'd be lying to say that he feels that he wasn't hurt by the demotion.

Yea, its a big game, yea he could of looked better in the last preseason game, But hell, same goes for big Ed, he did not look good during the preseason but he still would of started this Sunday, regardless how he looked.

Yea, Eddie was hurt during the preseason with bad wheels, So was Jordan, He had a high ankle sprain during the beginning of training camp. If you ever had one then you'd know how hard it is to recover from one. This kept him out for less than a week.

Yes, Keith will get the go but I think that this is not a good move. Almost all of your starters came off the bench to replace the starter when they went down with an injury. Who went in to replace them???? THE BACKUP!!!!

Let BECK play. If he falls, then he falls but you've got to give the kid a chance. If you don't then why the hell do you have him listed as Ed's backup.
