    Switching Positions
    I've never been a big fan of teams turning a guy into something else, at a position they've never played before. SEA quick-tracked Ackley to the bigs by making him play 2B. Why? He played outfield (and some 1B) at NC and obviously thrived there... maybe not defensively, but there was no pressure on him at the plate. Just let him play where he plays, and let the bat do the talking. He's probably loving the fact that he's been playing OF again. For some it works, but for others, not so much. Let's see how he does in CF.

    Hope and change......
    ...for Ackley that the bat is back and the arm and legs can cover CF defensively. Either really "hope and change" or worse, other than getting hurt. Cross the fingers and toes, and let 'er rip.

    Man I love this guy, but I think its time to move on. I also believe that we need to cut bait with Ryan as well. We could probably trade him to a NL league for cash or a low level prospect. So bummed about Guti. We are a better team with him in the lineup.

    And I said maybe 30 or 45 games...
    for the over/under? Woops! Glass man is down again. Too bad for him, I like him when he is healthy...I think? It is hard to remember that far back.
