Lancaster's RF Options, Kaz to DL?

Lancaster names such targets as Juan Rivera, Reggie Willits, Ryan Freel, Reed Johnson, and somewhat oddly Coco Crisp. I can't see us dealing for Crisp, but maybe the bad blood from the Adam Stern / Julio Lugo mess is over?

Another Lancaster article here foretells of Kazmir likely starting the season on the DL - likely giving either Jason Hammel, J.P. Howell, or Jeff Niemann a major league job - and includes such notes as Charlie Montoyo's son finally going home and Stuart Sternberg's son Jake - no, not Larsen - being at yesterday's game with his lacrosse team.

I would like to point out one thing about Sternberg's comments on today's telecast, mainly about the stadium. This thing has been in planning since he took over, probably before that, getting a new spring stadium raised some eyebrows from the locals, but what it did was clear Al Lang's land for a new stadium as soon as possible based on the vote in November, if the team didn't have the Port Charlotte situation set up the entire process could've been pushed back at least another year. When the organization says it's following a plan, they mean it.

Oh and Sternberg made the point that I've preached here often: just because a player is old doesn't make him a good veteran presence on a team.
