In my opinion the answer is no. Even in the case of injury I still can't figure out why we signed him if the above answer to both questions is no. Will he really be that much better then a Hartford call up who has at least been playing regularly?
Well, I don't know. Stralman, in theory, should provide a bit more offense and a bit less defense than Woywitka. Does Stralman's offensive "prowess" outweigh his defensive deficiency? I don't know, as we've yet to see him this year. I think he could provide a different look than Woywitka if nothing else.
