  1. Man, Phipps is flat out getting it done in Louisville. He’s having an outstanding year. I bet he skyrockets up the prospect list for next year. On top of the year he’s having with the bat, they say he has the strongest arm in the outfield.

      You’re right, but he’s a very strange case…it’s like the light suddenly came on. I’d have thought he was on the edge of release one more than one occasion.

  2. Boxberger is hopefully the closer of the future.

  3. @pinson343:

    I am also keeping an eye on Nick Christiani, not having as good a year as Boxberger this year, but we’ll see…
