Daric Barton Interview - 06/07/2007

Growing up in Huntington Beach, Barton speaks with a slight Southern California accent and his demeanor is fun-loving and polite, clearly just a kid who loves to play the game.

Adam Lind Interview - 04/12/2007

The Bulls versus Syracuse Chiefs was considerably colder. Game time temperature barely broke 60 degrees and with the sun setting it was dropping quickly. However, a chance to see Blue Jays prospect Adam Lind deposit a first inning home run and Jorge Cantu try to get his offense back on track made it worthwhile.

Matt Wieters Interview - 03/28/2007

Wes Roemer Interview - 03/13/2007

At just 6-foot-0, 200-pounds, Fullerton junior righthander Wes Roemer doesn’t look too imposing on the mound. But the Baseball America Pre-season First Team All-American maintains a fierce game face any time he’s on the diamond.
