*Everybody knows about possible the best prospect in baseball in 3B M.Cabrera but they are others....

GREENSBORO (SAL) 3B TOM MERKLE crushed a two-run homer in the bottom of the 10th inning to help the Bats edge the Asheville Tourists, 6-4. After OF JEREMY HERMIDA led off the extra frame with a single, Merkle, who singled and scored in the third inning, ripped a one-out homer to snap a 4-4 tie for Greensboro, which has already played in eight extra inning games this season. A 15th-round selection of the Florida Marlins in the 2002 draft, Merkle was playing in just his third game in the lower level Class A South Atlantic League. Over those three contests, the 22-year-old New York native had four hits, including two longballs, and drove in three runs for the Bats.


* Jupiter's 3B/ DH Jose Santos is one of those forgotten trades of dealin Dave. Acquired by the old GM in that Todd Zeile trade(yes Zeile was a Marlin) is finally swing a live bat in Jupiter. batting .300 for the Hammerheads Santos finally could be back to that prospect level.
