Remember when Derrek Lee went down with the broken wrist?
I try not to.
But more specifically, do you remember the guy they brought up to take D Lee's place in '06?
Neither do I.
I think it was a hodge-podge of guys.
Well, this guy Micah Hoffpauir, he had an awesome spring.
Lou played him almost every game - the guy's 28, he has no Major League experience at all, but it looked like he could hit.
If something's gonna happen for him, it ought to be soon.
Anyway, I wanted to do something to remember this guy.
A yellowpages ad seemed appropriate.
Later in the season, lets not say somebody gets hurt, but maybe Lou just wants a bat.
Call Micah Hoffpauir Lumber, Lou.
See what happens.
In any case, it's good to know there's a guy like that on the farm just in case.
Okay, I'm still on production, we go back tomorrow.
The opener's on Monday, supposed to be 42 degrees and showers.
I figure with the wind that means 32 and snowing.
I'll see you there.
