I'm not saying every play he made falls under that category.. He made some great catches and was a good CFer, but i vividly remember a handful of balls he tracked and had a beat on the whole way and dogged it so that he could dive. And it's not like I watched him every day.

Don't know if I agree with that, exactly, but both great players, Andruw Jones the far better fielder, and one of the best of all time when he was at his best.

Note: this was his first career game in LF. Bethancourt is the future at C, but better believe Wren will find a spot for this kid... er I guess I should say man.

I would argue that there is better pitching in the Southern League (AA) than there is in the PCL (AAA).

It's got 2 paid levels. Level 1 which i got is 2.99 a month and gets you the radio broadcast of every game, stats, highlight video and a condensed video of every game that breaks down an entire game into about 10 minutes of the high spots.

The next level is something like 120 for the year and gets you the TV broadcast of every game on your phone/ iPad.

My 9 year old who hardly ever sees anything past the 4th inning grabs my iPad every morning to watch highlights.

I ponied up for the full subscription last year when they added MLB.tv support for the Apple TV, and it's great. Being able to watch not only on the the phone/iPad but also on my big TV put it over the top.

The only annoyance is MLB's draconian blackout policy. If I'm away from the house and want to watch the Braves, I have to use my Slingbox instead of the MLB app because all local TV broadcasts are blocked. It should be a no-brainer for anyone who roots for a team out of the market they live in, though.
