I am not worried about the slow starts from our top prospects in Birmingham.

1. Regions Field is notorious for being the place where would-be home runs go to die;

2. Adolfo, Rutherford, and Gonzalez are all new to AA, and itís understandable they would need time to adjust, particularly since the jump from A+ to AA is the toughest jump in the minors (exceeded only by the difficulty of the jump from AAA to the majors);

3. 10 days of cold bats to start the season is more noticeable but ultimately less worrisome than 10 days of cold bats in the middle of the season.

But though FRATER laughed openly, he wept secretly; and really he neither laughed nor wept. Nor did he mean what he said.
