Schafer got sent down to AA camp a couple days ago. Not a surprise, and not at all a critique of Schafer. He made a great impression on a lot of people this spring, but he never had a shot to make the team. Kotsay was the starter and there was no way Schafer was going to ride the bench. I love what I've seen from Schafer. He can be a 30-30 man if he makes the most of his potential. I think he at least has 20-25 seasons in his future. He also has great defence. Terrific range. I really like his swing. Short, compact, powerful, and smooth. He should bat lead-off when he first breaks through, but he has the makings of a 3 hitter. He deserves all the hype, at least in my opinion.
