Wasn't early-season, but Kevin Maas. If I have to start from Opening Day, give me...what was the year Ruben Sierra started great for like the Mariners? 2002. (Joe Sheehan)

2009-06-10 08:45:002009 Draft Coverage, Day TwoNice nab in the 6th for the Tigers with shortstop Dan Fields, a local product who was expected to go much higher.
