And for some good news from Florida

I'm sure Charlie will do a recap on the Bradenton season shortly, but a quick look at their season impressed me no end. We've already heard about Cabrera winning the batting title, but there's more. A batting champ can have an "empty" average, but Cabrera's wasn't. If you look at the wOBA rankings Santos was 4th, Grossman was 5th, Cabrera was 6th, and Gonzalez was 12th. Gonzalez had 36 doubles, Grossman had 34, Cabrera had 25, and Santos had 22. These would seem to promise real power down the road. And of course there's Jarek Cunningham, who hit 15 home runs in 310 at bats.

But for me the real news was pitching. In addition to solid performances by Lorin and Baker, the graduates were very impressive: Irwin, Inman, Welker, Cox, and McPherson. Of course McPherson was the most impressive, moving from A+ to AA and turning in a very strong performance at both levels.

All the news from Florida wasn't bad.
