Bill, I have always actually had a more difficult time reading your all CAPS posts than regular font, but I like your new bold addition. (My eyes are bad as well.)
I have been a strong advocate of Iggy at SS for a long time.
I have also been a strong advocate of Lava at C, once Papi took the arb. Originally, I had hoped Lava would be this year's DH and PT catcher, and once it became clear Papi was returning, I suggested trading Salty while his stock was highest. I think Lava is better than Salty right now, and trading Salty could have saved us a little money as well and maybe been part of a deal to get a quality 4th starter (i.e. Salty, Middlebrooks, and Bowden for Floyd). Since Lava and Shoppach both hit lefties better, I think the signing of Kelly (and Papi's return) sealed Lava's fate to start in AAA.
I feel more strongly about Iggy starting FT this year than Lava, but had Papi walked, I'd be equally for both here and now.
