Comment on La Russa one the era’s great enablers by The Fat Pastor

Great article. I put a link to it in my blog post commenting on LaRussa's retiring. Interestingly enough, LaRussa and McGwire will be eligible for the Hall during the same year (though different voters)

Comment on A scout’s blog: baseball’s hidden world by Bob

There is a young player, Will Calhoun, 3 time all American, just out of college, playing with the Ft Worth Cats Minor League club in the American Association. I was surpirsed to see him show up there. Phenomenal 3d baseman, makes better plays than most major league infielders. He out sprints everyone else on the club and has range that's unbelievable. He also pitches. This guy can hit off major league pitching I'm certain. He rarely strkes out, hits the ball hard everytime he's up. He's only been playing for Ft Worth a few weeks. Just one of those super players that dropped between the floor boards I guess. I'm told he worked out for the Rangers and Braves and both teams liked him really well?????????
