hey, he broke in as a third baseman. Maybe somebody should tell Kieboom to train with him?

Broke in?  Broke in?  Dude won 2 MVPs while playing 3B!  Maybe Kieboom just needs to drink a case of Yuengling nightly and he'll be a .340-hitting extra-base hit machine.  (Or if he decides to limit it to team flights, Wade Boggs is also an acceptable outcome; either way, Kieboom needs to drink more.  A lot more.)

Incredible that he moved back across the diamond in 2012 & 13 after 3 year as a 1B and DH.  You just don't pick up a more difficult defensive position like that at age 29. 

Yes, Kieboom needs to drink more and put on 40-60 pounds (miggy listed at 249).

Used to drink at CCSP when the Marlins were in town ~15 year ago.

FredNats lineup should be pretty solid.

but it is good to see some progress.  Robles hit a ball hard and took a walk.  I'm thinking that he may have a shot at becoming a major leaguer when he's 25 or so. Corbin, on the other hand, I don't know why a guy his age sticks around.  He must have a Jacoby Ellsbury-type contract where he gets paid only if he doesn't retire.

Pleasant change from last year.

There are a few older guys who are off to good starts, but the teams aren't overloaded with guys too old for their leagues.

From a quick glance at Rochester's stats:

- Cavalli in a trough

- Clippard drops ERA to 5.11

- Garcia, Tres B., Nick Banks (?) hitting well

- Donavan Casey bumping along at .230.
