Would be starting Lewis today if I did my roster moves during the day like normal people :-t . Picked him up at like 2am this morning, so don't get him until tomorrow (no idea why he was still available in my league)

Eric Young Jr. just called up, was hitting .363/.462/.544 for AAA Colorado Springs with 17 SBs and 45 Rs in 160 ABs. Not a single HR though. Still, a solid speed add. Hopefully he gets regular playing time.

Edit: Leading off, playing CF :-D

What are the chances he does get regular PT though?

Well, they could put him at 2nd instead of Herrera, but if he stays in the OF, they have to split up PT for CF and LF (CarGo everyday in RF) between Smith, Spilborgs, Fowler, EY. I would guess that EY will get the most ABs out of those 4 because I think he's a highly touted prospect who wouldn't have been called up unless he was near full time, but I can't say that for certain. He'll end up sitting out occasionally, but hopefully he's not strictly a platoon player.

How come none of you guys told me how fun it was to own Ellsbury? He singles, he steals, he scores. Then he homers. Quite the player....

The Kotchman surge continues in Tampa. Just hit a dinger. Is he viable yet?

Figures that Carl Crawford decided to go off against me. The guy sucks all year and now he has 3 HR and other ridiculous stats. !+)

EYJr is only highly touted in the fantasy world since he can steal 60 bases. In the real world he's a 26 yr old with mediocre power and too many K's that has spent the last 3 yrs bouncing between AAA and the Rockies with mixed results. He'll be lucky to see regular platoon AB's imo.

The only thing I'm certain of in that OF (other than CarGo everyday) is that Smith will play against every RHP.
