I’ve been watching him in the AFL and what a beast! He is very exciting to watch. A little sluggish on some days getting to the ball in Right or a run to second but he has started almost every game, so I get it. Everytime he comes to bat I don’t want to blink for fear of missing a jack.

As we have seen with so many prospects in the past, so much can happen to slow guys down. I can’t wait to see what Grossman does at AA. It appears he is learning exponentially now. First it was more walks, less K’s, then the average and doubles increased, now the power is coming…all of this in 7 months or so. If he can stay on the same curve, he could be in AAA by June 2012.

I wonder if they’ll sellout. I know I’m gonna try to be there.

I thought I saw someone talking about how Bauer got a call up in September. That’s all anyone was talking about around the time he was drafted/signed, so it didn’t surprise me to hear this. I guess he only made it as far as AA.

even if he did, its because he signed a major league contract.  Cole, did not.
