Utility prospect Spears is playing SS tonight. And while his bat hasn't caught fire yet, he's batting 3rd in Iowa's lineup. Lots of ifs, but I'm hopeful that he might end up becoming a useful big-league utility guy someday. But he's got to hit for that to happen.


Fox is 26, but he seems to be showing that he's an improved and improving player. Two years ago he was in AA. Last spring he started in AAA and stunk. What he did as summer progressed showed he was much better than last spring or the summer before. So even though a lot of propects have plateaued by his age, he seems to be turning out to be a real hitter. Too bad we don't have the DH in the NL. Fox and Hoffpauir might make a nice tandem if we did.
