    Drew Tate was in pads and throwing the ball today. For a guy that was shutting it down for the year it's interesting to see that report. He says he's not 100% but we'll see what happens should Kevin Glenn take another hard shot or have a couple bad games.

    I don't get what the deal is in bringing Tate back so fast? What's the deal?? Let him have the year off to totally recover. Why take Brad Sinopoli off the roster when he is healthy? Let's say theoretically in one game that Glenn gets hurt & can't play & then the same thing happens to Mitchell. Would the Stamps actually throw in Tate? That is ludicrous.

    Pretty rare you see a third stringer having to come in the game. He'll just handle clipboard duty.

    It's rare but it has happened. My feeling is that you don't dress a player if he can't play. I'd rather have Brad Sinopoli come in than Tate.

    I don't think it's that big of a deal.

    I'm not happy with Sinopoli being cut right away, but it's not my call.

    Tate said he was "220%" ready to play in an interview I saw with him today, so if he wants to play, let 'em play.

    I don't recall seeing him as being cut - but simply as a removal from the active roster.

    Could be wrong though.

    Sinopoli's been placed on the PR.
