Wow. All the top B-ham prospects got at least 1 hit tonight...Shelby, Beckham, Allen, Flowers, and Vicideo. That's a team.

We'll see. I think there's a better chance that Beckham will stay in the minors longer than that, and he'll end up playing 2B.

I have to admit, Ramirez looks as smooth as silk at SS. It's going to be real hard moving him out of there. I mean, if he's a gold glove caliber SS, you pretty much can't.

I liked reading that game time temperature of 72 degrees. This will be my first season following the Barons on here. Usually when the big club brings up a guy, I really don't have a sense of what kind of player they are. Usually when I player gets traded, I had no idea of who they were. This was a good start for the Barons. There sure are alot of strikeouts in the minors!

Yes, Hawk has mentioned CJ Retherford more than once I believe. Not entirely sure why he is high on him.
