Trivia Time!

The answer to yesterday's question was Hank Blalock, answered first by jtmorgan

Wrong answers included Melvin Upton Jr, Pat Burrell, Carl Crawford and Delmon Young

Today's prospect:

"[Prospect] may be the top hitting prospect in the minor leagues. Watching [Prospect] take batting practice can be reminiscent of a Mark McGwire show. He is adept at lining pitches down and away to right-center field, works counts like a leadoff hitter and adjusts his swing to different pitchers and situations. He has significantly improved his ability to get his hands through the hitting zone on plus inside fastballs."

Hint: was once one of the top two prospects in the game at the turn of the century.

- Also at Rays Colored Glasses, they took a look back at what turned out to be a very quiet month of December.

- Major League veteran of 14 years (1981-1994), Dave Henderson passed away yesterday morning at the age of 57
