here are his comments on Gordon Beckham:

22) Gordon Beckham, SS, Chicago White Sox

Hit .270/.347/.460 in 103 games for the Chicago White Sox, very credible performance one year out of college. He’s gonna be a good one.

BTW, Gordon Beckham finished his rookie season with a .362 wOBA and a .289 BABIP. Also, a 2.1 WAR and a $9.6 million value.

Grant:

Dallas-raised Rudy Jaramillo, the Rangers hitting instructor for the last 15 seasons, has turned down the club’s one-year contract offer and is preparing to explore the free agent market after his contract expires October 31.

For some unexplainable reason Walker’s contract was renewed though.
