Andre Ethier is on FIRE...and other updates
Let's hope he can keep this up :
Nobody wants to pitch to the Texas League MVP.
Andre Ethier, who led
the Midland RockHounds to the league championship with his .319 batting average
and 104 runs scored, drew nine walks this past week for the Phoenix Desert Dogs.
He walked three times in three of his five games to raise his Arizona Fall
League-leading total to 16 and lift his on-base percentage to .507.

In other AFL news, Daric Barton has cooled off quite a bit:
Barton started the week on a high note, going 2-for-3 with a double, two
runs, a walk and a stolen base against the Scorpions on Oct. 21. He cooled off
after that, though, going 0-for-11 to lower his season average to .234.
