Wednesday's Dump & Chase: Austin's Powers

Austin Watson has had a rough career. A product of the Trotz era draft idiocy ideology, he's labored, and then labored some more in the minors, and well, he's kinda become a very solid player. He's making a strong case in camp to keep him around, and honestly its about time. I'm rooting for you Austin, keep it up!
