Justin Verlander had a nice start today: 8 innings 5 hits 2 ERs 0 BB 8 Ks.
Problem is I don't think you can force either Young or Boesch out of their positions. Neither will DH full-time. I'm telling you man, Berry is boobies in center. Let's move Jackson to second. Would the defensive gap between him and Santiago/Raburn/whoever be bigger than the offensive gap between him and Santiago/Raburn/whoever? I think so.
