THE NEWBERG REPORT — June 2, 2008

Frisco’s
Max Ramirez homered on Saturday and again on Sunday, giving him a league-leading
14 bombs to go along with a league-leading 129 total bases, a league-leading .694
slug, a league-leading .456 on-base, and a league-leading 1.150 OPS.  His .376 batting average languishes at second
in the league.

Perhaps
lost in the mix was the fact that, on both days, Emerson Frostad was behind the
plate for the RoughRiders.  The infielder
had one previous start at catcher this season, back on May 6.

The
23-year-old Ramirez – who is on the Rangers’ 40-man roster – is as dominant a
hitter (albeit at the AA level) as Josh Hamilton right now.

Number
of games Ramirez played at first base in his first five pro seasons: 0

Number
of games Ramirez has played at first base in 2008: 3

Number
of games Ramirez has played at first base the last five days: 2

Is
this still just about versatility?
