    Looking forward to seeing this guy go around.  'Safe under the high ball', is what he'll have to be.  Exciting stuff.

    Like I said in other posts he was impressive in that first half v. quins (is that an 'I told you so'?) a blockbuster type runner and looked steady under pressure (unlike wolfman who was spilling them all over the place.....)
