    Garcia is wasting his time in GR. Get him to Lakeland and see if he still gets everybody out.

    Humberto Sanchez is now an official Hot Sh*t prospect. Give him 10 more starts at AA and then see how he does in Toledo. He could be in the rotation by July of 2007. Or he could be in extended spring training in Lakeland. You never know.

    Erie scoring 14 runs is in the “when pigs fly” category. Clevlen is one of those guys who seems to struggle at every new level. We will need to remember that when he is starting in LF in Detroit and hitting .158. He will be ok.
