    I like Francisco's swing the one game that I saw. He's look like he's got a real shot to be something. Of course, that is obvious by now w/ the number's hes been putting up at Dayton.

    I agree. Valaika was the DH yesterday, and I can't believe if he's an unbelievable defensive talent at SS that Donnie Scott would ever have him at DH. Stubbs, after seeing him in person, comes off more impressive than reading the box score. You have to see the game in person to understand how slick he is defensively. He gets such a tremendous jump on everything. Also, his HR to left to end the game was pretty sick, considering the wind was blowing in from right field at about 15 to 20 MPH. Nobody else hit anything close to the warning track all day.
