Hamilton and the farm report

Just finished writing a freelance piece for Baseball America on Josh Hamilton. Made me think: Has anyone gone from "How are they going to keep him on the roster?" to "He's got to be in lineup" any faster in baseball history?

Here's the minor league report from my man Jamie Ramsey:

Louisville loses despite another solid effort from their starting pitcher…Chattanooga drops the opening game of their series with Tennessee…Lookouts relievers didn’t allow a hit in their 5 innings of work…Paul Janish swinging a hot bat…Before last night’s game with Dunedin, Sarasota’s Carlos Fisher named Florida State League Pitcher of the Week for 4/5-4/15 – then takes the mound and fires another gem...Jay Bruce sees his hitting streak end while Jeremiah Piepkorn extends his…Johnny Cueto toes the rubber tonight for the SaraReds…Dayton wins again!...The Dragons are doing just about everything right - .331 team batting average and 1.57 team ERA.

4/16 Gosling: 4ip, 3h, 0er, 3bb, 5k

Anybody else think Narron left Coffey in too long? When he hits two of the first three batters he faces you gotta think he might be having a little control problem.

When will Narron wise up and play Josh everyday? Even Freel thinks he should.
