    Sam –

    I checked MiLB.com’s wrap, the Lakeland Ledger’s recap and Baseball America’s prospect blog and found no mention of it. I’m hoping it was just a day off.

    Did anybody else see in Jim Callis’ chat, when asked who was the “Best all-around 5-tool player in the minors”, he said Maybin? I don’t know if that’s accurate or not, but it’s nice to have a Tiger prospect where that statement can at least be argued.
