That's fine, and I don't doubt his sincerity. I just think the safest play is to bring back Stralman and move him if Erixon proves he's ready. I don't want to run into a situation where Erixon needs more time in the minors and we're banking on another random guy to fill in. We know Stralman can play so why not keep him?

Move out Woywitka and Eminger, maybe Bickel as well.

Staal
McDonagh
Del Zotto
Girardi
Sauer
Erixon

Stralman and Scott are your depth. Or, if Erixon isn't ready, Stralman plays and Scott and Bickel (or whoever) are your scratches.
