MORE JUNIOR LAKE & MORE
I am feeling ecstatic over the arrival of this young man! He is a breath of fresh air. He’s making it hard for management to consider sending him back to Iowa when David DeJesus returns. I’m betting he stays!
As I was watching last night’s game against the D’Backs, I saw something encouraging to me with Starlin Castro. He struck out and hit his bat on the ground breaking it. I normally don’t like players showing their frustrations on the field, but this was a little bit different for me. Too many times this year I have felt that Castro was too indifferent or didn’t seem to care. So, when he broke his bat last night I was happy. It made me believe that he still cares and that competitive fire is still there.
Who’s next to get traded? Soriano, Gregg, Schierholtz??? We will just have to wait and see. I’m looking forward to it though. The minor league system is getting rebuilt in a hurry under Theo & Co. which is a good thing. We still don’t have an ace in the making in our system yet, but that could change soon.
