I figure there are a number of you who have this same "my dad was a Cub fan, taught me everything I know..." story. One day, probably still a long time from now, we'll be able to write a different joke without the sarcasm.
Okay, probably a long, looooong time from now.

Good points. I'm actually a Baez über optimist. Mueller is going to do wicked stuff with those wrists, if only because he will wish he had had them. You don't want to "correct" a swing at this level, generally, but they will have to because, like housing prices a few years ago, that's just not sustainable. It's a hard thing for the coaches. They could have one of the best power hitters in baseball on their hands, or a total bomb. It's going to be very interesting, and their depth makes it not matter so much.
