Can somebody smack Riggleman in the back of the head and tell him that Espinosa can't hit as a leadof guy.....yet? I know he batted leadoff in the minors off and on, but it's not working up here right now and he is going to do nothing but kill this kid's confidence that he can hit in the majors. He was doing just fine until Riggs started batting him first. That was an understandable experiment. IT'S NOT WORKING! Help the kid out and move him back in the lineup where he is confortable. The most important thing for him is to gain (regain, in this case) his confidence that he can hit in the big leagues. Once he's established and feels comfortable, I'm sure he may be able to hit leadoff some time in the future. Right now, he's probably putting so much pressure on himself, it's hurting his game, and confidence.

Hey did you Natinal fans see that Bog posting by Steinberg about Harper?

Harper says he's a fan of the Cowboys, Yankees, and Duke.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHA. His d0uchey front-runner attitude perfectly matches his d0uchey faux-hawk. Seriously, a faux-hawk. That says it all.

Oh and Hagerstown?!?!?!?! Neither the O's or Blue Jays wanted anything to do with that place anymore. Must be PERFECT for the Natinals.

Technically, the New York - Penn League is Class A (Short Season). The Rookie leagues, which are considered to be a level below, are the Appalachian and Pioneer.

Hey Night Stalker, who would you bat leadoff? Desmond? Or Bernadina?
