James Loney hasn't exactly set Hollywood ablaze with his hitting prowess; can he still cash in on his mediocrity?

In last week's light-hearted preview of the NL West, I quipped that Loney should star in a show called “Being Doug Mientkiewicz.” Marginally amusing one-liners aside, the truth is that Loney is a better hitter than Mientkiewicz, though this is hardly cause for celebration among Dodgers fans.

Talking to the Snakes' scouting director in the wake of running his first draft.

The Arizona Diamondbacks arguably had one of this year's best drafts, and it happened under the direction of first-year scouting director Tom Allison. Formerly a cross-checker for the Milwaukee Brewers, Allison replaced Mike Rizzo as the man making the picks for the Snakes after Rizzo moved on to become an assistant general manager for the Washington Nationals last season. Allison was with the Brewers for seven seasons, and prior to that spent five years as a scout with the New York Mets.
