    Jason Lane possible for our bench?

    I know he seemed to hit well here when he was with Houston..

    Per rotoworld

    "Jason Lane can opt out of his minor league contract with the Yankees if he's not called up by Tuesday.

    Lane is hitting just .248, but has 11 homers and 37 RBI at Triple-A. He may get a look as a reserve outfielder if the Yankees decide to send down Shelley Duncan. "We have some decisions to make over the next few days," manager Joe Girardi said."

    If he opts out.. whats the chance?
    Could get rid of one of the catchers..

    The chance? I'm guessing it's very slim. However, I wouldn't mind seeing it happen as long as it's at a reasonable price.

    Maybe. It was an Astro fan I think.

    It was definitely an Astro fan and I can vividly remember him predicting Lane's imminent success. If I remember correctly, he also warned the board that in the not too distant future, Dunn and Lane would be mainstays of the Houston OF for years to come.

    That was 2005.

    IIRC, OBM agreed with Astrobuddy every step of the way...

    Here are a few Astrobuddy quotes I just found:

    That I can promise you will not happen. I will buy you Reds season tickets if Clemens goes back to NY.

    I'm still waiting for the tickets.
    "My mission is to be the ray of hope, the guy who stands out there on that beautiful field and owns up to his mistakes and lets people know it's never completely hopeless, no matter how bad it seems at the time. I have a platform and a message, and now I go to bed at night, sober and happy, praying I can be a good messenger." -Josh Hamilton
