For my Dodgers, Chin-Lung Hu will be there after a big 2007 that ended with a cup of coffee in September. Xavier Paul and Greg Miller also have a chance to re-establish their prospect status'.
For my Bakersfield Blaze, former players Chris Davis, John Mayberry Jr., Danny Ray Herrea, and Taylor Teagarden will be there. Current player Elvis Andrus (only 19 years old!) will be there too, though on the reserve list
LaPorta should be called La Bomba! He is without a doubt "The Total Package...In my research ...I read a quote by his colleg coach stating that Matt was the only player he can recall coaching who he could play "anywhere on the field". At first I wondered about pitching... ...however I saw that after not having pitched since HS, he pitched ih in the Cape All Star game a few years back and was the highlight of the game..I have to agree with coach Mac! He is "TPKG" a fan and a coaches dream....all in one!
I believe he is just what MLB needs with all the steriods and lies....a natural HR hitter combined with a genuine personality and a true respect for the god, game, other players, the coaches and officials and his fans! Get ready Milwaukee fans .... we are going to have a lineup as powerful as the MLB has ever seen once Matt joins in!
