Like most, if not all of us here, I'm happy to see Conger on the roster to start the year. Haven't seen much of Shuck over the spring, but from what I have seen, I like and he's still pretty young(24 or 25 I believe) Hope he contributes enough to stay on the roster.

I am very happy for Hank.  It's his time


It's too bad that Calhoun didn't seize the opportunity.  Shuck deserved it.  There were some holes in Calhoun's game that were exposed this spring that we didn't see last year.  I hope he can overcome them in a short period for when Trumbo gets sent down. :)

This is probably the best roster we could put out. Give Jimenez a full year to see if this improved discipline is for real and Calhoun will most likely be up at some point anyways so giving him full time AB's for now is good. Shuck has hit really well this spring too. Glad to see Conger making the roster too!
