is there a reason berry is being used strictly in relief now?

What are your thoughts on this 1st baseman Anderson at Aberdeen? He definitely seems to have some power and decent avg. I saw Flacco moved up to Frederick before this kid.

what happens to narron when the #1 pick shows up?

What's the thinking in the system on Rowell? I saw a couple of Keys games earlier this year and he was not all that impressive. And is Flacco a genuine prospect? I saw him at Salisbury and he looked like he could use a little more muscle.
