    Great to see Ian Ostlund get some press. At Spring Training in 2004, I had the pleasure of sitting behind him and Mike Rebalo during a game (the guys from Minor League camp will come over and watch the night games).

    He was a great guy and we really enjoyed te conversation with those guys. I would love to see him one day at least get the opportunity to get a cup of coffee at the ML level.

    At 28 the odds are against him, but as thin as lefty relievers are in the ML, he may have a shot.

    Is Cameron Maybin on like a 6-7 game hitting streak? seems like every boxscore I see he’s got a hit.
