Mike from has some good insight on Lin:
"I have it on very good authority from within the organization that Lin has the best OF arm and is already the best defensive OF in the entire system. He's gotten RAVE reviews since he's arrived. And he might be faster than Jacob (Ellsbury)."

A - Greenville won 8-6. Chiang was 1-4. Box

A - Wisky won 5-3 in the 9th. KH Lo was 2-3 with a double, a HR, a walk, and 2 RBI's. The HR was only Lo's 3rd of the year. Box

Great comment on Lin. Too bad defense isn't as important in OF as SS.
