  1. Any call-ups expected?

  2. Question I am not trying to pick a fight, just a question for the experts :)

    Craige Lyerly was supposely promoted to BG with Tyler Motter and Lenny Linksy, however, Lyerly is the only one not put on the roster yet. To me that doesn't make sense, since you only have 2 of your "true" outfielders. The guy that played LF last night has never (besides the game before) played outfield a game before in his life. So why wouldn't Lyerly be the first one to go on the roster. With the way lyerly was hitting in HV if he isn't going to play in BG why take him out of his comfort zone and let him finish the season strong in HV? I just don't understand the philosphy behind not putting him on the roster.
