And just one more thing: D-Backs

Once upon a time, the Arizona Diamondbacks had one of the best systems in baseball. They used that depth to trade for Dan Haren. Lisa writes in today’s Diamondbacks preview that there’s still talent, it’s just in the lower levels of the system. That being said, here’s an extra guy who should play his ball in the upper levels in 2008:

Chris Rahl, OF: Coming out of the Cal League can always be a bit of a shakeup fCrahlor a hitter and
can take a little while for them to recover. So was the case for outfielder
Chris Rahl, yet another member of the amazing crop of Chesapeake-area Virginia
kids. A fifth-rounder out of William and Mary in 2005, Rahl raked in his
full-season debut in 2006 when he hit .326 with 13 homers, 80 RBIs and 18
steals. In his promotion to Double-A Mobile, he hit .259 with eight homers, 51
RBIs and 15 steals. Look for an ’08 closer to his ’06 numbers than those of ’07
in a likely move to Triple-A Tucson.
