Read this: Finding a way to walk off the island

I'm working on Part 2 of WHYGAVS prospect week as we speak and it'll be done tonight/tomorrow morning. Until then, tide yourself over with this great Baseball Prospectus guest piece by Jorge Arangure about why Dominican players have trouble drawing walks in the big leagues. The story traces the journey of the Indians' Carlos Santana, but could be easily applied to a lot of young Dominican players. Like Starling Marte, for example.

About Pat Lackey

In 2005, I started a WHYGAVS instead of working on organic chemistry homework. Many years later, I've written about baseball and the Pirates for a number of sites all across the internet, but WHYGAVS is still my home. I still haven't finished that O-Chem homework, though.
