This Torres kid is going to be good……..and he plays shortstop…….can never have too many great shortstops.

Where did I hear or was it read that comment prior, the one about never having too many shortstops? Seems to me someone in a position of authority with the organization said something very similar to that recently. Wonder who that was. Hmmm!

not going to give up on OLT yet he still could become a weapon look at rizzo and castro spending aug in AAA could do wonders for his confidence and maybe we should do the same for lake.
