    He's so young but developing so fast, how long before they make a definitive decision on 3B or 1B?

    I take it there's no way he becomes an OF?

    No it's entirely possible. People look at his body and automatically say he's going to be a First Baseman. When really he has tools to profile at mutiple positions including corner OF with a strong throwing arm. He's also not a slug. He's not fast but he moves better than he looks. He also has plenty of time to get in better shape. I think that will come for him. By the time he gets here I think we saw a body transformation. Especially with the new front office goals towards high performance and nutrition. Third Base was AA's front office decision. If he's still playing third it's not a gimmick like people thought it was.

    Yeah so do I, what's your point? You're not seriously trying to compare those two as athletes.. right?

    Bichette 2-3 with a double

    Vlad Jr 2-2 with a walk

    The insanity continues.

    I've been to Classic Stadium. If you get a chance go the Noon game super early. They give you such great access to the players (they actually let me step on to the field to get a better angle to film Lindor taking batting practice). Not a great party stadium, but good views. Go on the teams Facebook page as they often have great ticket deals (I got 5th row behind the dugout for $4).

    Just looked at the schedule. June 1st is supposed to be Brady Aiken facing Dunedin again. If you are going to just one game, choose that one.

    I usually get to a few Bison's games a year..will message you when we're going. Vlady and Bichette won't be here for a couple of years, hence the trip to Lake Country ( Cleveland ) before they're called up to Dunedin....just a little closer than going to Lansing.
