"All I can tell them is pick a good one and sock it." --BABE RUTH
Having better players makes "the right time" or "the big hit" happen a lot more often. PLUS PLUS
I think we are actually looking at a very good class of prospects right now. Its hard to really love any of them but on the good side its hard to hate any of them also. Alonso and Leake obviously are the game changing talents on the list but if you got Fraziers and Heiseys on your list you clearly gotta be happy about it. Not to mention some really really good young talent that is waiting in the wings to pop up.
The fact that Frazier is passable at so many positions is a big plus. Anyone who can hit and be plugged in at that many positions has quite a bit of value.
And there's absolutely no reason to have Alonso start next season at AA. That's just a waste of time.
I thought they'd flip them and get Francisco more innings in LF with Frazier at 3B
