  1. Nice aspect of the blog. Very cool....

    How is Givens even on here still? I feel like he's been down on the farm forever...when's he going to show that he's ready? It certainly looks like we're going to need a new 2B any day now, and one who can make in impact would be a f*cking god send.

  2. Bob,
    I would expect Givens to drop off the list this year after a disappointing 2011 campaign. That said, the O's have to consider converting him to be a pitcher. He might be able to regain his prospect status after the conversion.
