Coo-coo cachoo, Mr. Robnett

For those of you wondering where he'd gone, Richie Robnett is playing AA ball in Texas.

Robnett, who had one of the best hitting seasons in Fresno State baseball history, was a No. 1 pick of the A's in 2004, but has batted just .264 in three minor league seasons with a 2.6:1 strikeout-to-walk ratio.

This year, however, it seems he's blossomed into one of the best hitters in the AA Texas League. At least that's what the article in the Midland Reporter-Telegram says, and when are they ever wrong?

So, the point here is Robnett may be on the fast track now that he's playing better (.277 avg, 16 HR, 69 RBI in 2007). At least, we hope to see him in the major leagues soon. It'd be quite a blow to the Bulldogs fan's ego if it turns out the A's swung and missed on two first-rounders from Fresno State.

Anyone got a read on Ben Fritz?

  1. Fritz is playing with Robnett on the same team, but he's been injured for a bit now.
