This has been a really busy couple of days. Once the dust settles it will be nice to look into all of the new young prospects that are potentially entering our organization, but until then I am having a hard time keeping up. I do find it funny that we see a lot of people complaining about our picks, especially considering I remember seeing the same thing during last years draft when people wanted certain players. Its funny how we get attached to players before they ever even play a game for the organization.
Drabek takes back to the mound tonight to hopefully wash away the memories of his last false start (never even got off the starting line). I really think he needs to start cutting back on his walks if he wants to stick up with the big league team for the rest of the season, but then again I am not sure we have anyone banging on the door to take over the rotation spot either.
