This might be a nice area to do an extended Future Shock article (similar to the excellent Josh Bell piece last year when he was traded). I think a lot of readers might like to see some of the process between the initial international signing and when the player starts showing up in boxscores in the States. At least, I know I'd enjoy it.

This is a more general question regarding corporate-sponsored names, but what compells the media to go along with it? Is it simply to keep a positive relation with teams? I think everyone would know what you meant if you refered to it as Oakland Coliseum. As it was, it took me a few moments to figure out where Network Associates was. Of course it's a moot point. And now that I've written this out I realize it's more an issue with fears of someday losing "Camden Yards" and capitalized ideas like Baseball Tradition and how names are agreed upon by a society and the nature of language and other things that I'm not sure anyone cares about, even me. And yet I can hit "submit comment" anyway. USA! USA!

You are correct. I found it: http://mlbplayers.mlb.com/pa/pdf/jda.pdf Section 8.B The 25 is for "failure to comply" to a treatment program. My mistake.

50 games? I thought the limit was 25. Is this a second offense or am I mistaken about the maximum?

We\'ll all miss Moyer, but in the PECOTA Ancient Pitcher Division, Randy Johnson\'s card is still plugging along. With a similiarity index of 0.

Will a Boras client ever extend early? If they could get him signed to a Longoria style deal, I\'d be thrilled.

For each club\'s #1: \"If this player were a video game, he\'d be ...\" :) Seriously, echoing some of the other suggestions: Top 11 HS, World and College, easier navigation (to Top 100 list/30 team index/previous year top 11), phonetics, and organizational draft philosophy (if there seems to be one). As an Orioles fan, and with nothing to do but look forward, your articles are the ones I anticipate more than any other. Thanks, Kevin. In Wieters we trust.
