    One question I am hoping someone can answer. Why are we letting Diek Scram toil in AA? The guy has been nothing but solid with the bat (according to his stats) Isn’t he kind of what the Tigers are looking for – a LH bat with some pop and a good eye?

    I wish we could see some of Scott Sizemore and Ryan Strieby – but Polanco seems to be heating up a bit and I don’t see who Strieby would take the place of.
