  1. Another guy that has really suprosed me, and somewhat put him self on the prospect radar is Marcos Frias. Ever senice he was moved to the pen he has been great.

  2. If Lombo doesn’t get a call-up, he should just sit down and refuse to play. I don’t know what else he has to do to get to the Nats.

    Also, in defense of Cuevas – he’s barely played since being brought back to the Suns. He mostly holds up the chain link fence at the dugout. :(
