EDIT: A separate thread for the farm system I think is a good idea to save clutter.
that sucks, maybe next time im up there ill make a trip and try and see him pitch. i def do NOT think LaRoche is the long term option at third and hope that we see walker the starter by next year, its about make or break for him
