Oh yea, and he is 28 and had never played affiliated baseball!!
RBIs being somewhat a team statistic, Colabello was definitely aided by having Hicks and Arcia on base at such a great rate.
Terry Ryan told Colabello a couple weeks ago (when Ryan was scouting for Sept. call-ups) that Colabello "was the glue that held the team together."

Hicks repeated A ball in Beloit, he only played one year in Ft. Myers.
Yeah, he was supposed to go to Elizabethton that first year, but there was a need in Beloit so he was pushed a little too quickly.
Yep, good correction!

Hicks season gives us fans some hope for the future and is much needed. Hope he keeps progressing. I remember another 5-tool #1 draft pick BJ Garbe? who never developed so that term 5-tool has been scarred ffrom that experience.
I guess the good thing about Hicks is that he has had good seasons in the minors and made some progress. 2011 was tough at Ft. Myers, but he was excellent in the AFL. BJ Garbe on the other hand, never had a good season or showed any progress in the minors.
