    "NUNEZ EFFECT" already kicking in?

    We all had a laugh on the game thread when Pedro Florimon got a rare hit shortly after the Nunez trade was announced...but look at the upgrade in production tonight from virtually all of the Middle Infielders throughout the organization:

    Escobar 2-2 against the A's.

    On the farm:
    Santana, Beresford, Mejia, Polanco, Goodrum and Michael all had 2 or more hits this evening- many of the extra base variety. Mostly coincidental? Sure...but competition is a healthy thing.

    The only way this impacts anything is if you have guys that are not performing because they are lazy or have a bad attitude, and this lights a fire. With this crop, I don't think that is the case. Delmon Young, absolutely. Pedro Florimon, not so much.
