Quick Links

I was going to write up a post for the people still unconvinced by Huntington's first year about why I like what he's done, but Wilbur Miller's already done the job nicely at Only Bucs.

WHYGAVS reader and former Air Force DJ Samy Fineman is in the finals for's "Rookie Reporter" contest. The contest starts in a week and you can vote for him here.

I've been keeping an eye on all the players we traded for the in the past couple weeks, but I'm particularly interested in Jose Tabata because he's certainly the wild card of the eight. He's hitting .359/.390/.513 in Altoona so far. It's only nine games, of course, but it's certainly encouraging given all of the negative things we heard about him at the time of the trade.
