    Hey Les,

    Sorry I been gone for so long brother, life’s been a little hectic. I need to replace Ryan Doumit on my team. Jeff Mathis (starting the Angels now) and Nick Hundley are both available. I’m leaning towards Hundley but Mathis is tempting now that he’s playing full time, thoughts?

    Is Carlos Santana (CLE) an option? If he is, I’d go with him. Otherwise I think Hundley is quietly putting up some decent numbers.
