Put Me in Coach, I'm Ready To Play... 

Not much noteworthy in this article on Willie Bloomquist's 5 week trip to Puerto Rico. He caught the flu, started slow, finished with a .289 average in eighty some odd at bats.

Most interesting part is that he played mostly centerfield and may loom as a potential backup to Winn in this spot. Seems kind of scary to me, but Willie had fun, and hey, isn't that what its all about?

"That is one position I haven't played a lot and it was a lot of fun," he said. "I really enjoyed it and felt I played the position pretty well. I didn't make any errors and had three or four assists, but Randy [Winn] doesn't have to worry about his job being in jeopardy."
