Any of you minor league experts have any explination as to why Tim is hitting .241? Are the numbers not as bad as they seem? and do you think he can turn it around?

I don't know, maybe he's just having a bad stretch. He's drawing a TON of walks which is very nice to see.

He'll be OK.

He's concentrating almost exclusively on D, trying to prove he can play SS in the Majors. It's looking more and more like that is true. His hitting will come around, but his focus has been on his D. He has a .300 swing with a .400 OBP eye. Great combo and may grow into better power numbers as he continues to mature...

Average. Not a basestealer. Probably about the same as Carlos or Maggs, but a little slower first step. Doubles speed.

Sounds like Scott Fletcher. We had some good teams with him on the roster. I'm just not sold on Willie Harris, nor should he be christened heir apparent to Ray.

Got a scouting report to tell me why?
