He is hitting:

.322 with 46 runs and 35 RBI at AAA

Its our friend Liu Rodriguez. I think its time we send Graf back to Atlanta and give Liu a real shot at a major league job. If we do trade Clayton he should be the first one recalled.

Anyone know how he's doing defensively?

I saw that, too. It seems nearly all of our best offensive players are at Charlotte. Is that a batter's ballpark? It sure seems that way.

Liu didn't show much when they brought him up in 1999. If the Sox were to deal either Clayton or Durham, I suspect we would be hearing more about this guy.

As it is we have one too many middle infielders on this team.

From what I hear, PHG, Charlotte is a hitter's park. I'll see if I can find some dimensions, at the very least. That makes you appreciate the job that Garland did down there.

It's 325 down the lines, 365 in the alleys, and 400 out to center with a 10 foot wall.

Sounds like a hitters park

Well, it's somewhat big, but it is short down the lines....

Farmer & Rooney are always saying that it is a smaller park, but it doesn't look as small as they seemed to want us to think it is...
