That's awesome. Then you know how bad he wanted it. He did his job and got a lot of outs during the scrimmages he pitched in. Hard to believe they couldn't find a spot for a kid who didn...

Yep. Didn't "field his position" very well. Looks like he's suffering some "first game jitters" (his first appearance at Dodger Stadium). Did bounce back with a ground ball double play to get out of the second inning with no damage....

You lost me with the comparison to Brown (Presumably you mean Mack Brown), who pretty much deserves a lot of criticism for doing the least with the most talent (Mark Richt would be another).
