Hopefully he pulls it off, but if we discover irrefutably that DM is a moron whose only talent is perhaps in the draft, then we're doomed.
edit: As for Hoch, I'd just offer him a minor league contract and an invitation to spring training with the expectation that he'll probably be stored away in Omaha. If he doesn't want that, (I assume no one will trade for him) release him and wish him well.
