I don't know if anybody has noticed but right now Baltimore rookie Nick Markakis is on pace for over 80 walks this year while batting second. I find this very impressive while he's getting used to the league. I see good things to come for this kid.

Nice patience for a rookie, no question. But this is still a big step up in class, so I don't see him as a 2006 asset in any of the other categories.

Well, he started over him while he was healthy and is Baltimore's best OF by far and has a great arm. So yeah, I think so, with a good deal of confidence.

His equivalent OBP% from the minors:

A .324, 404 PA
A+ .325, 401 PA
AA .411, 143 PA

Is it true they use metal bats in A- ball?

He's had only one good "season" in the minors(OBP and EqA) and that consisted of 124 AB. He might pan out, but I don't think he's a good bet at this point. The guy needs more AB in AA and AAA IMO.

Well, wasn't he a converted pitcher??? That takes some years to get used to.

He hit and pitched, it was surprising to some when he was drafted as a hitter. I agree that it might be beneficial to take extra time to work on hitting alone, thus playing more AA and AAA ball.
