Tim Williams was mistaken about Gift being eligible, he is safe for one more year before he would have to be added. It was a technicality due to signing date.

Add Zach Stewart, Bryan LaHair, Brent Lillibridge, Clint Robinson, Vin Mazzaro, Chris Volstad, Cory Wade, and Matt LaPorta to the list of interesting DFA's. Some of these guys are more appealing than guys like Rick Van den Hurk or Chad Beck on our 40 man roster.

Anderson Hernandez and Jeff Larish were signed too! Them and Felix Pie, Indy is ready to defender their Western Division Title...

Hernandez and Larish are AAA filler material but they had decent seasons last year at Indy. They won't see the bigs unless there is a rash of injuries and we are desperate. All teams have these types of players in the minors.

Robinson maybe. The example of GJ be damned; Clint's a tad long in the tooth for him to a ML 'diamond in a the rough'.

LaHair and LaPorta as a BIG maybe.

Wow, really?!

I mean, I know he's a 'seasoned' MiL vet and struggled down the stretch last year, but he was fairly competent.

Ahh, Felix Pie... I'd have been ecstatic if we'd gotten him for Aramis Ramirez 9 years ago. He was untouchable as far as Cubs were concerned, IIRC. Who'd have thunk he'd turn out to be Tike Redman?
