The next greatest second baseman

It looks like A. Casilla won't be going back to Rochester any time too soon.

and when tolbert comes back hopefully it will be the end of the Lamb/Everett experiment.

I think that Everett should be shown the door...

I'm with you. I think they both should go. Lamb signed a 3 yr deal though, so I doubt he is going anywhere.

Lamb is not that bad. His defense needs work, but I like him hitting out of the 8 hole in our lineup. He's a solid left-handed hitter. Nothing spectacular, but he gets the job done.

Plus Punto is out for another month or so, so we need Lamb. He is better than what we had last year...Rodriguez (yuk).

You're right about Casilla, he has played WAY over his head. Let's hope he keeps it up. Sure is fun when he and Gomez get on base at the same time.

I also don't think Lamb is that bad. He's got only 2 fewer RBIs that our #3 guy, with about 20 fewer at bats and an average of 90 points lower. He has had some clutch hits. I think he's the best we've had on 3rd since Kosky left. (that's not saying much)

YEah Lamb will have to do for a while I think...Tolbert showed some decent ability, but I think Gardy will stick with the veteram Lamb for a while. Casilla on the other hand is a joy to watch, both offensive and defensively.

    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...there goes the neighborhood. 
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
