  1. The first 100 members get pie.

  2. Chip says:

    If Romine puts something like a .280/.350/.480 line in AA this year, will he start shooting up prospect rankings?

  3. trent says:

    So Mike, could Reegie Corona supplant Robinson Cano by 2011?

    • pat says:

      I’m not Mike, but I can answer this.

      Absolutely not.

      • Mattingly's Love Child says:

        Exactly what I was gonna say. Reegie is a utility guy at best. Those are useful and nice to have when they’re home grown and cheap. But he sure as heck aint no Robbie Cano.

        • trent says:

          What’s the deal with Russo? Is he utility as well?

          • whozat says:

            At best.

            I’m pretty sure that, with a little effort on your part, you could answer all of these questions yourself. Not only has Chad Jennings talked a good bit about these guys at LoHud over the last several weeks (since he watched them every day in his job as the SWB beat reporter), but I’m sure that Mike’s talked about these guys here as well. Search is your friend.

  4. trent says:

    Would that be a pie in the face Andy?

  5. trent says:

    Why not Pat? Is Reegie not the real deal to you?

    • pat says:

      Hahaha, no sir, not even close. Much akin to the case of Colin Curtis, a few good weeks of Fall ball do not erase a poor poor career in the minors thus far. 262/.338/.342 in 2500 plate appearances isn’t going to replace .306/.339/.480 from 26 y/o Robinson Cano.

  6. ultimate913 says:

    Does anyone know Jesus Montero’s real facebook profile? I REALLY want to add him.

  7. Alex K. says:

    Question based on “not what you say, but how you say it.” Has:

    “Ivan Nova’s been SHUT DOWN!”

    or

    “Ivan Nova’s been shut down.”

    ?

  8. There was a game last night in the Puerto Rican League, the score was 14-1 in the 7th or 8th inning, and 13 of the runs were unearned.
