This is the second of my Mike Hessman posts, the first of which, can be found here:
http://razzball.com/forums/viewtopic.ph ... &sk=t&sd=a with many more unnecessary Mike Hessman updates to come.

Today's Mike Hessman News comes to us from MLB.COM, where Hessman is compared to the likes of Jack Cust and Ryan Ludwick... well, sorta:http://mlb.mlb.com/news/article.jsp?ymd ... p&c_id=mlb
Mike Hessman, 3B, Tigers: Hessman will turn 31 shortly, but that doesn't mean he has nothing to offer the Tigers in Detroit. Yes, he's hit just .231 in his Minor League career, but he's also hit 288 home runs and 30-plus in each of the past two seasons. That's led to some brief callups to the bigs, and he's hit nine homers in just 78 big league at-bats over the past two seasons. It's hard to imagine that he won't be back in Toledo to start the year, but if some right-handed power is needed in Motown, Hessman could make for a great story.
More gratuitous Hessman news to come as it arrives off the wire...

Dallas is struggling in spring training, but he's likely to get the 3B job unless the Marlins can advance Gaby Sanchez through the system. He's out of options, and I don't think they want to just release him. In 18ab, he's K'd 6 times... .222/.263/.278

Sounds like McPherson's exactly where we want him.

Country Strong, or else Jack Cust with 3B eligibility.

Imagine the excitement of a little kid when he sees the Larry Jones game worn jersey swatch only to look up and see Mike Hessman's pants.
