    Well we'll will have to see him play in order to determine that.

    I know he'll make the whole rotation better at the clean-up spot.

    Some say, however, that they lack most at the catcher position.

    They have a bigger problem with their pitchers.

    He can be a homerun hitter.
    It will depend upon if Childress gives up the play calling responsibilities this year.

    I would disagree.
    I think thier defense on the on the corners is a bigger issue.
    Sure hope they can charge a bunt.

    They have a bigger problem with their pitchers.
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg

    Not sitting on the bench with a hip pointer he isn't.


    I know it's a minor thing right now . . . but he isn't impressing me as having this injury bug thing behind him.
    We've already got a talented MOORE who can't seem to stay healthy.


    I hope this isn't a sign of things to come . . .

    Richardson, who blocked for Priest Holmes and Larry Johnson while with the Kansas City Chiefs, can testify to the rookie's high-speed ways. Patience, he says, is a virtue not often found in young runners.

    "Adrian is straight downhill. And that's just because he doesn't know any better yet. I have to get out of his way because he'll be on my back in a minute," Richardson says. "You have to learn to allow your linemen to work for you and that's when you start getting home-run runs."

    The learning curve should not temper Peterson's overall style.

    "His upside is tremendous," Richardson says. "He runs with a mean streak."
    I was watching a you tube clip that was posted yesterday of AP running at OU.
    I was amazed at how he appears to be quicker when he makes a cut.
    He doesn't look like he slows down to make the cut.
    It is really amazing.
    He is truly Kinetic.
