But what I wanna know is what, exactly, is the basis of Berkman's appeal? He's appealing, so he must think that major league baseball has some of their facts wrong. And I'd guess that he's prepared something of a case on his behalf. But what are the details of this case?
Is he claiming, for example, that his batting gloves actually sprouted wings and flew out of the dugout of their own volition? Is the linchpin of his case his assertion that the bag of equipment seemingly thrust back onto the Coors Field turf was in fact a trick of the lighting?
Or does he maintain that the shadowy player in the warmup jacket on the field in the ninth inning was in fact his stunt double?
I know it's a game they play so that Lance serves his suspension when the team wants him to, rather than when MLB wants him to, but it kind of brings up a good point. What is required of a player to file an appeal? Because it doesn't appear that anything so sophisticated as evidence which calls into doubt a player's guilt is required.
The other thing about this is that the Chicago starter tonight is a lefty. Do you think that if Houston had ended up taking two from Colorado that Berkman might have actually started serving the suspension tonight?

I do hope to see the young Mr. Dietrich in the booth with JD and Brownie soon.
Update : I've added some links to information about some of the players, and will continue to do so. The hope is that Jeff Sackmann will release some more of his college splits for Day Two guys.
I'll also add signing info as that information becomes available.
Beyond the stuff linked to, I've also found out that our ninth round pick, reliever Luis Pardo, was not only drafted in the 50th round in 2003 by the Brewers, he also went to the same high school as Alex Rodriguez, South Florida's Westminster Christian.
And it looks like our 13th round pick, outfielder Chad Jones, is more interested in playing defensive back at LSU than going to Greeneville for Rookie ball.
Oh, and shortstop Cat Everett appears to be no relation to Adam.
