This is a short post because there were only two games yesterday.  But, I will review that yesterday's prospect discussion went quite well, especially considering it was Easter and a lot of ya'll probably spent the day with your families, as you should have.  Based on yesterday's response, Sunday will continue to be a Hitter/Pitcher of the week discussion. 

Even though it was a slow day in the minors, there were still somebody to highlight.  Guess who the star was?  It was none other than Tal Smith's favorite, Mr. TJ Steele.  As many of you know, I'm not a big fan of TJ because he hasn't shown his "Five Tools," and he's consistenly been a disappointment because of the amount of time he's spent on the DL.  Is there talent there?  Sure, but I don't think he'll live up to it and will mostly likely dwell on his floor of a career minor leaguer than his ceiling that the FO has raved on.  But, if he's going to display the power that he showed yesterday all season, I could get behind him.
