One thing I want to say about Gonzo is he's really starting to show signs of once again becoming the shortstop of the future. Everytime I've seen him play he makes a web gem. He's got great range and a strong arm, although he's still prone to errors, but with time, those will go away.
I love the fact that he really has a good eye and his swing has come a long way from what I saw of him last year.
I think maturity is the biggest reason for his improvement this year. If he performs well, I could see him staying at Birmingham. Reyes could get released if Andy forces the issue with his play. So far he has looked somewhat overmatched at the plate. It's only two nights, so no reason to judge in haste, but I haven't seen a lot of good swings out of him yet.
