Re: 25 Man prediction thread
Sappelt won't make it, but he's sure opened some eyes for either later this year or for next season. If Gomes struggles in a full-time role (likely) and Baker can't find an effective leadoff hitter, I could see a three-headed monster of Lewis, Heisey, Sappelt, and Gomes trading off LF for the rest of 2011, then move into 2012 with Sappelt and Lewis platooning (though not straight up) and hitting in the top spot of the order.
