This is the first year, and yes I know it is early that I have been impressed with Casilla. He is batting .268, which isn't great, but it isn't bad in the 9 spot and having a lot of speed. He has been better in the field, he is taking more pitches. I think if we look at bright spots this year, we don't talk about Casilla very often, I can say he has been someone I have liked watching this year. If he can take even more pitches, draw a few more walks, and steal some more bases we have a decent 2B.

I'm a Casilla fan as well. He is intriguing because he has ranged from not ready for Little League to outstanding. He has always seemed to have focus issues, but as he has gone on, he seems to be better at keeping his head in the game. On a team that lacks both speed and power, he provides speed. He does have a knack for stealing bases. 5-5 this season.

The middle infield is solid right now. While Carroll's average could be alittle higher, he's drawing plenty of walks. His defense has been outstanding lately. These two both need to keep this up. We are turning more double plays as well.
