    I dont think they ever had 6 RBI's and a home run in their first major league game. I dont even think either of them got above .300 ever

    No, they didn't. The point is that both of them (Korey and Felix) were hyped beyond belief, and both flamed out in spectacular fashion. Strangely enough, both were traded to Baltimore as well.

    *I know it's "Corey" not "Korey."

    Also, I think Korey was over .300 for the entire month of May in 2003, but that was about it, as had a horrible month of June that continued into July until he blew out his knee.

    I think Kosuke had 3 RBI in his first game. I know he hit a double off the wall in his first at-bat but I don't remember if he drove anyone in.

    Re: Starlin Castro

    You can't really count Fukudome as he has been playing pro ball for a number years. Now that the move has been made he'd had better play every day. I hope there is a move here the gets rid of Baker or Font as they are both not needed

    I agree with you there. I think one of them will be shopped for an arm in the bullpen. Castro is here to stay

    I think if anyone goes, it's going to be Nady. Fontenot is "valuable" in that he's the only leftie bat on the bench now due to Tracy getting sent down. Yes, I know Koyie is a switch-hitter, but most managers aren't going use their backup catcher to pinch hit.

    He could make a good DH, and he's played some first base all ready this year. Kind of a Jake Fox type situation.
