Scroll down for Danks. John Sickels is a fan of him as well, as he believes he'll make the show, regardless of a power surge. Sickels is a pretty damn good judge of talent.
What does Callis think? I believe Sickels is high on too many people that don't deserve the hype. I think he'll make the show too, but is it going to be as a 4th-5th OF or a decent starter?

That will happen when you have only one pitch and it's not on that day.

Beckham is having an awesome game today.

3-3 with 3 runs scored, 4 RBI, and a 2 run HR.

Edit: Make that 4-4 with 4 runs scored, 6 RBI (2 RBI triple, 2 run HR, 2 seperate RBI singles)

Edit x2: Just hit another HR, unreal. 5-5, 7 RBIs, 2 HR, 5 runs scored.

Armstrong has hit his 6th HR and driven in 2.

Danks is 0-2 with a SB.

To be fair Sickels had only seen him in one game and said he hadn't seen enough of him to make a judgment, he said other scouts told him about their concerns with Beckham.

Are you ****ing kidding me? Nothing better than making light of a disease in order to slam someone for passing along information.

Every time someone calls you on something it is always a joke.


I think I know what the real joke is.
