    Minor Keys

    Is it too early to get excited about Stephen Hunt? Talk about coming out of nowhere! That kid is as hot as any in quite some time. A very nice start to the season. He's only 22, too, so playing in A+ the entire season wouldn't be horrible for his development. That said, he and Grandal might just make the Carolina lineup solid.

    Add those two to Cody Puckett (who's playing 2B well enough-- for now-- to allow his 1.182 OPS in the middle of the diamond) and Mike Costanzo (1.011 OPS while playing third base) and you could have four guys with serious potential to hit.

    Too bad they'll still have to pitch.

    Is it too early to be concerned about Alonso? 60 ABs, I know, but his line (.246/.279/.344/.624) won't get it done in LF or at 1B. The kid has to get it done this year. I'm on record as saying he's a Sean Casey clone. Could that be optimistic?

    Is it too early to think this season will be more of the same as last season for Todd Frazier? 70-ish ABs and he's showing power, but his BA is rough. If he can play six spots, he's still got value, but when was the last time he played something other than LF? For goodness' sake, they brought up Eymann to man the hot corner rather than try him there.
