  1.  If this D’Arnaud hot streak continues, I’m saying call him up and give him a chance at short. What do they got to lose? He can’t be any worse then Cedeno. And its nice to see Lambo starting to heat up, kids only 22 and has a ton of potential looking forward to seeing him in Pittsburgh if not September this year, then next year.

    • I too would like to see Matt Curry promoted, but I’m guessing it won’t happen until after the draft and some of the signed draftees are assigned to their respective teams.  Kyle McPherson should be due for a promotion at that time as well.
