    escobar is on a hot streak at triple-a nashville, hitting .370 over his last seven games with five doubles.

    Spin: Escobar, 22, is probably ready for the major leagues or very close to being ready. He still needs to walk more, but only j. J. Hardy is keeping him from being promoted. If hardy doesn't get traded during the season then escobar will spend most of this season in the minors.

    Ya Escobar has his average over .300 for pretty much the first time this season.

    Any word on how his defense has been? I know he has 9 errors but that's not that indicative of how he has been playing.


    As for trading Hardy this season to make room for Escobar, I am torn. They are completely different players and Hardy has been inconsistent this season so I don't know what his trade value would be.

    They sould bring escobar up to play second and bat lead off. Counsil has been good but the speed would be nice. Chris Cody from the Gross trade seems to be pitching well if I remember i heard he throws close to 95 with a great curve. Also I was pushing for a salmone trade in the offseason would have been a good idea the way he's hitting this year.

    I don't think Cody could throw 95 even in his dreams. You're thinking of Josh Butler although he's more 91-93.

    Salome has been dealing with nagging injuries all year.

    I think hardy still has a pretty high trade value. Good defensive shortstops are always good for trade value and you throw in the fact that he's a solid hitter, he can fetch something pretty good. However if we trade him during the season we better get someone who's going to make this team better right now and in the future.

    I read that a high ranking executive gave out a list of players who he thought the Red Sox would and wouldn't give Bucholz (sp) up in a trade and Hardy was on the no list.

    I saw it in the Boston Globe I think.

    Boy has Escobar been hot. He went 3-5 last night with a triple, home run, and single.

    Brewers drafted IU pitcher with the 26th overall pick. I personally love the pick, hopefully he can move through the minors quickly and can help the Brewers soon.

    Their supplemental picks they got for Shouse and CC-

    THE BREWERS JUST TOOK UNIVERSITY OF TENNESSEE CF KENTRAIL DAVIS WITH THE 39TH PICK IN THE SUPPLEMENTAL FIRST ROUND.

    Davis, a sophomore-eligible player, sounds like one of those somewhat raw players with tools. Strong and physical at 5-foot-9 and 200 pounds, Davis strikes out a lot but has a short, powerful swing from the left side and good speed. He batted .308 with nine homers and 30 RBI on a bad Tennessee team.

    THE BREWERS HAVE TAKEN RHP KYLE HECKATHORN FROM KENNESAW (GA.) STATE WITH THEI 47TH PICK IN THE SUPPLEMENTAL ROUND.

    Heckathorn is a pitcher the Brewers have watched a lot this spring. He is 6-foot-6 and 240 pouinds and throws hard, sort of like firstp-rounder Arnett. His fastball has been clocked in the high 90s and has a very hard slider.

    I read that it's not out of the realm of possibility that he is in the rotation by some point next season.

    I was never excited about a Capuano return. He had one decent season and other than that he was all that good. Plus, coming off of a 2nd Tommy John, it's unlikely he'll ever pitch in the bigs again.

    I Salome finally shaking some of the nagging injuries that plagued him earlier this season? He's heating up at the plate, getting his average up in the .280s. I know he hit like .360 last year in AA, but I will be happy if his average gets to about .310 to finish the season.
