Fans wanted him all along, from the beginning. Weggie was the last to figure it out.

Now that most of the pitching is out of order he can plead not guilty for another season.

Well, I'm the one usually defending Wedge and for good reason on most counts, but to leave this kid in the minors to start the season is indefensible.

How, HOW do you keep Michaels over this guy? If he's the better player, and obviously he was by leaps and bounds, he should have been here from day 1.

Remember, it was Wedge who thought that Brandon Phillips could not play in the bigs.

Brandon Phillips was a young punk in Cleveland. A talented punk, but his attitude was poor.

Francisco has no such red flags. I can handle the character excuse, because it was evident, but Ben can flat out play and he's a solid guy. No excuse there.
