Morning Notes

**I wasn't really happy with the College World Series Live Blogging experiment yesterday. I struggled to find interesting things to say beyond vague generalities. Part of this may have been exhaustion....I had two hours of sleep the night before. . .part of it could be unfamiliarity with the format, having never done that before. Or perhaps I'm just not very good at Live Blogging. I'll try it again another time, perhaps during the Futures Game.

**Jared Mitchell has come an awful long way in a year. I like the way he works the count, and his willingness to take stuff to the opposite field. I'm not sure his home run power is ever going to develop as much as people hope, but he's got lots of pop to the gaps, controls the strike zone well, and of course has the blazing speed. He needs to sharpen up his outfield routes, but the athleticism and intelligence to do so are obviously there. I'm increasingly happy that I picked him in the Shadow Draft.

**We are going to start looking at players who got a "Sleeper Alert" moniker in the 2009 book, to see how they are doing. Look for that this afternoon.

**I'll be on BlogTalkRadio with Rotowire's Jeff Erickson starting at 11:00 am Central.
