Anyway, if any of the guys I'm following in the SF Giants' farm system does end up becoming a Posey, a Linecum, a Bumgarner, what have you, I guess I'd like to pay next-to-nothing for their early cards while I can. That said, the word is definitely out on outfielder Heliot Ramos. Though he's only at AA right now, he's doing just fine - better than fine - for the Richmond Flying Squirrels, and I think it's a matter of days/weeks before he's playing in Sacramento (AAA), with a potential September call-up to San Francisco in the making.
Last year, both Bart and Adell struggled for their respective teams, and both are in the minors now. I, of course, have a ton of cards on each of the fellas. If they end up being cup-of-coffee players, ah well. It is what it is. Right now the new prospect thrill in my world is Mr. Heliot Ramos, and I'm doing a little bit of the legwork to track some of his cards down. Here are the 11 I've got going so far.
