Three comments, all ways I would have differed:
1) Michael McKenry in one word- journeyman. he’s the classic mlb journeyman.
2) Deryk Engelland- my favorite player, more of a scrapper than a fighter. Difference comes in the fact that he doesn’t have to fight to make an impact. A fighter is more like Georges Laraque.
3) Brent Johnson- brick wall.

and I’m assuming Brandon Knight was put on instead of Brandin Knight… no biggie.
