1B Brian Dopirak - When will he get his due promotion?

New Hampshire's 1B Brian Dopirak is tearing up AA with a .320 average and 19 HRs over his 303 ABs. With the Jays lacking power, you would think they'd be all over him and would at least test him in AAA. But no, there he sits in AA, wasting his time and power. If the Jays are going to make a run at the playoffs this year, they need all the help they can get from their minors system. Dopirak would make an excellent DH and could get his chance if Rios is traded this season - where Lind would go to the OF along with Dellucci, and Dopirak could give Overbay some days off as well. If the Jays don't give him a shot in AAA before this happens, he could be overwhelmed by the change in speed of the game and not produce as well. I say promote him now and see how well he does in AAA.
