Delmonico to 3rd...Esposito to 1st

Jason Esposito, the Orioles second round pick last year, has actually shown significant improvement in his all around game. For some reason, he was bumped up to Frederick after a horrid rookie campaign in Delmarva. Even so, his play has been bad, but still much sharper. His OPS, his fielding percentage, and his stolen base percentage have all risen.

Well, they've tried just about everything else with him including showing him the stick, they might as well show him the carrot. All he has to do is look at his driver's license to see how old he is and realize that if he wants a ML career he better get serious about playing baseball.

I'm content to say "Let the prospect show me something" before condemning any of them. I do know some players take a great deal of time before putting it all together. Parker Bridwell has had a huge amount of time in the SAL so I so no reason to focus on Esposito.
