    Hans, I've noticed that all you ever do is try to diminish other's accomplishments. Maybe you should try Extenze.

    Don't now how the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association listed Austin but on the draft info on the Baseball America website in the 4th round, Austin is listed as a CATCHER and also listed as receiving a $450,000 bonus from the White Sox. The WRAL article indicated Austin was an outfielder. As a NCSU STH I saw Brett play MORE games as a catcher this season than as an outfielder. Do you folks go out and ever watch the games?
