    Nook Logan’s going to AA? I am surprised by this.

    You heard it here first; Scott Sizemore is going to be a heckuva player. He’ll probably end up at 2b but he is going to be good. Fearless prediction #14,753.

    Also, Ryan Raburn is earning himself a shot.

    Remember in the spring when we were afraid that Logan was going to take ABs from Granderson? Not. Hope Nook makes it back. His speed and glove could make him a useful last guy on the bench.

    Dustin Mohr is a nice pick up. He will help the Hens a lot and even at 30 he still has a shot at being a useful major leaguer. If Thames or Monroe were to go down he could fill in. Ludwick Ks so much that he would more likely struggle.

    I hope anybody that doubted the value of AAA stats has learned something by watching Thames bash the ball all over the park. He’s been a legit ML hitter for 3-4 years now.
