    It’s really nice to see how most of the players are doing, and especially how Gift has started to come on with the bat. Maybe it really is just a matter of exposure to higher level talent and getting that experience. I mean, it’s not as though he’ll have much in the way of other prospects blocking him going into AA, so I’m sure he’ll have plenty of opportunities in ’13.
