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.

Yes doctor, I am sick. Sick of those who are spineless. Sick of those who feel self-entitled. Sick of those who are hypocrites. Yes doctor, an army is forming. Yes doctor, there will be a war. Yes doctor, there will be blood.....
[quote="nuggets"]His equivalent OBP% from the minors:
A- .346, 239 PA
A .324, 404 PA
A+ .325, 401 PA
AA .411, 143 PA
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.[/quote]
Well, wasn't he a converted pitcher??? That takes some years to get used to.
