This quote by Manny Sanguillen in today's paper really floored me...

"He reminds me of Willie Stargell," Sanguillen said, as Alvarez settled in at the plate. "He's going to be something very special for a very long time. He's gonna be something else."

I'll take it! It's a very good article too.

The video is even better. Nice crisp thwack off some batting practice balls. Very encouraging.

And, to top it all off, the article is entitled "Pirates thrilled with Alverez's power and work ethic"

Umm... He's not in shape, and he's not working hard enough. Like they said earlier.

Yeah until this news story this summer:

PIRATES TOP PICK SUFFERS BACK INJURY!

Lynchburg (AP): Pittsburgh Pirates top prospect Pedro Alvarez was pulled from the lineup for tonight's game against Frederick, complaining of lower back pain. The team phyisician, Dr. B. Allsnstrikes, was quoted as saying, "This reminds me of the same situation that we saw with Ron Wright about ten years ago. The Doctor is referring to a former Pirates prospect who developed back problems in the minors and never made it above double A for the Bucs.

Wright reached AAA for the Bucs where he hit .300 and had 16 homers in about 350 PA's in '97.

Due to an overzealous group hug by oiled up men in tight panties?

Oh....I thought it was either a picture of A-Rod's family reunion or the official Yankees team picture.
