Lord I hope for his sake we got his son and not Elbert, that would be terrible.

Yeah, I am sure he did. His son was told not to dress tonight.

What a deal for Andy.

Bell is a doubles machine, good OBP, good power, plays 3b!

Johnson has 8.8 K/9 in the minors.

With the acquisition of Bell, I wonder if the Orioles hold on to Wigginton to have him be the 3B next year, while they refuse to re-sign Mora.

I think that would be a great idea. Get Wiggys value up next year and trade him at the deadline. Hopefully by then Bell may be ready.

Bell ranked #8 in BA's Top 10 for the Dodgers.

Sickels had it like this coming into the season

8) Scott Elbert, LHP, Grade C+: This might be a notch too low, but command and durability issues are still there.

9) Austin Gallagher, 3B, Grade C+: Sleeper prospect. Needs to tighten strike zone, but I think more power will come.

10) Josh Bell, 3B, Grade C+: Making progress, but reports about weight are disturbing and he might not hit enough for first base.

Yet ANOTHER switch hitter. I wonder where Bell will ultimately end up hitting for us. But MAN - Roberts, Wieters, Bell, Izturis...all switch hitters and we FINALLY have a legitimate young 3B for the future!

With Steve Johnson as an honorable mention.

The key thing about Bell, is he has worked really this hard on cutting down his strikeouts and improving on his walks, so his K:BB ratio is 70:50 on the season.
