I'm glad to hear this. Last year, I got the impression that he hadn't really embraced his role completely; he still seemed like a BB out of position. I think this is very good news for us. It means that if - but Heaven forfend! - Laskey should get hurt, we could move Days to BB and still have that big AB we need on the field regularly. I don't think that'll happen; opposing teams have had plenty of opportunities to put Laskey on the bench for three years now and haven't succeeded. Now that he's 10 pounds heavier, I think the chances of him getting hurt are just about zero. But you never know.One small correction, Perkins is at 205 not 216. I heard him say it in an interview recently. He said he dropped the weight to help his speed and quickness and it has.
