I was reading Cub's Den and came across this link to the cubsreporter about some extended spring training activities from the highly touted prospect. I guess he's raking it at the plate, but he seems to have some issues. Any thoughts?

I read it and posted either before you did, or before I saw it on the main page. Sorry, I got excited because I though Baez was morphing into Milton Bradley.

Edit: I just checked and going by the time stamps on the comments from the main page, I posted this before the bullets went up, and no one noticed. I also though the coverage from the rest of that article was pretty cool because we've heard almost nothing about how a lot of those guys have looked so far. Anyway, I stand by my Bleacher Nation loyalty.

Well, if you're gonna get scooped, it might as well be by royalty.
Please don't feed the psychos.

I may have been confused about the relative time-stamps because I was in Chicago at the time, and my computer time was an hour later than the time I was posting - I thought the Bullets were up for about an hour before your post. And I was just foolin' around, anyway.

My friendship bone feels fine.

If your going to get scooped, it might as well come from your own site.

what is this about the king making your bone feel fine?

Well this type of behavior isn't a great thing, but I'm not too worried yet.

Watch it buddy.

I didn't check the main site before posting, and the time stamps don't really line up with the message board, so I'm still not sure who posted first. We both read it from the same source anyway, so it doesn't matter. Nobody even talked about Javier Baez in my post, so I think your post wins by default.

PS: This might not be the appropriate forum to talk about the condition of your "friendship bone". Although I'm glad that I didn't offend yours in any way. :blink:
