Ackley MVP of AFL

Dustin Ackley was named MVP of the Arizona Fall League.  Here is a quote on his statistics during his MVP run.  (The Mariner article can be found here).

“He won the AFL batting title with a .424 average, but that was far from all he accomplished. He also topped the league in on-base percentage (.581), slugging (.758), OPS (1.338) and runs scored (28), all while also going a perfect 5-for-5 in stolen-base attempts.” 

I hope he can ride this momentum into the Spring and make the team.  We all know this offense could use someone like this.  I realize he won’t be on a team of potential young all stars as he was in Arizona, but he still should see some quality pitches and put himself into a position to score.

Now onto the following announcement.  “Starting at second base, Dustin Ackley!”
