    In 2012, it looks like almost every ranker had Goodrum in their top 20, but no one ranked him higher than #16.

    This thread should get a bump. Benson obviously turned into a club failure recently. Levi Michael has been terrible with New Britain in the field and in the batter's box. It's getting to be about time to call Madison Boer a bust. He's been unable to pitch in a pitcher's league that he's getting to be old for. Haven't heard too much about Wimmers, but I'm sure he'll get a chance next season for sure pending recovery.

    I like what I've seen so far from Salcedo, Goodrum, and Morales this year. Salcedo is doing decent as a reliever and the other two are hitting well enough. They aren't necessarily raking, but those guys have all made huge strides towards success.

    I find it interesting that John Bonnes went from being still very high on Joe Benson this year, to agreeing that he should be waived not even 2 months into the season. Seems like a pretty small sample size for that big of a swing in opinion on the guy.

    I've been a big fan of Bensons and have been tracking him nearly daily. I'm not sure he should have been first in line to waive, but it's painfully obvious that whatever he needed wasn't happening in this org.

    I think in this org he'd have been a 4th OF. Not sure he'd have amounted to much more. In Texas, he might have a chance at reclaiming his career. I wish him nothing but the best.
