I'm a believer

I think this kid is destined for greatness. I think he will end up being better than the guy drafted before him, what's his name Stepheen Stras--?? That's right, the #2 pick from 2009 was Seattle's new star Dustin Ackley. The kid can hit the ball, he can catch it. and is heads up on the bases. Look at last night in the 10th inning:

Marlins reliever Steve Cishek was trying to intentionally walk Carlos Peguero, but the throws kept getting wider, and wider. Dustin was heads up and scored the go ahead run when he broke for home. Of course the Mariners had to hold on in the bottom of the 10th, since we were the visitors. I liked this change in the game with NL rules in an AL park. Let's hope that coming home to Safeco will help the Mariners do something with the Braves, who we welcome to town for the first time since 2003.

Big thanks also to Mint Condition for making this sweet Dustin Ackley custom 1993 Topps card yesterday!!
