Justin Christian's callup probably disappointed many Yankee fans (who wanted Gardner), but it made us smile here in St. Louis and he's the second client of PSEM to make the big leagues. Both him and Thatcher played for the independent team in O'fallon (the River City Rascals) - a suberb of St. Louis. That's evidence that major league talent sometimes falls through the cracks or develops late.
I've met Justin and he is a guy you'd definitely root for. He works really hard and can talk baseball over a beer.
Again, I don't want to litter the forum with boring stories, but it's fun to share; especially with the Cafe. This site has taught me a ton. I hadn't heard of Tango or the Abstract until visiting here. So...a big "Thank You" to the Cafe, I guess, and my apologies for "clogging the forum" with material that cannot possibly be relevant to your fantasy teams (unless Christian gets PT, because I swear he can steal like crazy).
**Also, Yohan Pino, who I realized was referenced in my post, left us for personal reasons.
Nice man that's pretty cool.
