I have a new favorite...

...Indians player.

His name is Matt LaPorta. He was one of the players acquired when the Tribe traded Cy Young award winner C.C. Sabathia to the Milwaukee Brewers. There was a collective gasp of horror and astonishment when we lost our Ace for a handful of prospects, including this fellow, who plays for Akron.

This week he's in Beijing, representing the United States in the last year that Baseball is an official Olympic sport.

I can't wait to see how he does. He's highly rated, a sincerely hot prospect. I haven't been this excited about a baseball player since Joey Belle.

Yep. Joey.

And you know how long that's been.
