  1. These past few days, LHP Frank De Los Santos, new pitcher LHP Thall, and now LHP Espinosa, have been promoted to Montgomery. Has Tampa Bay given up on Josh Satow ever being promoted to Montgomery? He's got the top ERA in Charlotte, but it seems pretty obvious they want to keep him there. Any thoughts on this?

  2. Not really sure the deal. Satow being moved back to Charlotte was a shock. The only thing I can thing of is he did not have the success in AA as he had in Charlotte, maybe they sent him down there to refine his game before calling him back up.
