"I would walk over hot coals naked to watch this kid hit."
Well all right. First off, that's fantastic. I wouldn't walk on hot coals, but I might head up to Everett or down to Tacoma should Ackley be in the M's farm system this summer. Ackley hit over .400 during his three years at UNC, was a three time all-american, consensus AP Freshman of the Year (FOY), can run well enough to play CF, has the glove for 2B, has "it" according to Peter Gammons, and....has 1,500 friends on facebook. Done deal. He also doesn't take shit from other first basemen.
