    In the Midland game, the key thing to me was Miles Head went 3 for 4 with a HR. (And 5 for 8 in last two.) Looks like he’s starting to figure out Righties – but not Lefties.

    I still can’t believe Shane Peterson’s super hotness in AAA.

    Yep, good to see Miles starting to pick up the pace at Midland.
