Kinda reminds me of the conversation I had with Ronnie Merrill one day. It was a cold morning April game in Mobile and he was drinking a cup of coffee. I had two cards for him to sign and while he was signing, I asked him what he thought about a stadium and if he ever played their in the California League. I believe it was Visilia. He told me " too early to be asking where I played the past 7 years ". Grabbed his coffee and accepted the fact he was going to be organizational fodder for the next 4 years also. Its very easy for me to root for these kind of guys to get one at bat in the Majors.
