which is why he was sent to AAA two years running based on shitty springs. in 2007, buddy bell and who ever the hitting coach was that year ( barnett? ) spent two hours after a game working with him on hitting right there on the diamond after a game.

Re: GO ROYALS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

what is more bizarre, the fact that the yankees signed angel berroa to a minor league deal with a chance to make the club, or the fact that he is hitting well for them this spring, and is now a serious contender to start at 3B for them?
