This morning, I wrote about the strange season Pirates minor league outfielder Robbie Grossman is enjoying in Class A+ Bradenton - he already has over 100 runs scored, and he's about to eclipse 100 walks as well. That's a rare accomplishment for a minor leaguer, and it hasn't been done since Nick Swisher in 2004.â†µ
This morning, the Pirates' director of Florida operations, Trevor Gooby, wrote and told me about this Facebook page, which is dedicated to getting Grossman named the MVP of the Florida State League. It began this week and has already been very active so far.
Grossman is hitting .287 with a remarkable .421 on-base percentage this year.â†µ
