Run, Devin, run.  All the way to GABP.
Run, Devin, run. All the way to GABP.

In a race between Devin Mesoraco and Yonder Alonso for #2 prospect, the Pennsylvania Kid won handily, in a time of 4'53". Yonder came in a distant second with a time of 5'45". The sad thing is, the race was only 100 meters. Nevermind, we still hope to see you up with the big club sometime this season. We already have our best minds at RR coming up with original groundhog related puns.

Today we vote on prospect #3, and you get 3 more choices added to the pool, including last year's #2 guy, a hacker who eats children, and an undersized, speedy outfielder who will kick your ass if you call him little. Happy Voting!!

Yonder Alonso, 1B
