I don't think that Eymann and Griffin have done anything to deserve to start in AAA. We traded Drew M. Anderson, a comparable player, to the Rays last spring training, and he played a full season in A+ and AA, despite being 26.Henry was okay, but he is only 24. None of these guys should be realistically expecting to be on the AAA starting roster, and will most definitely not risk their career and ask for their release.
