I'm going to make this short and sweet. Grant Green won the Futures Game MVP today. Green played for YD in 2007 and Chatham in 2008 prior to being drafted out of USC in 2009 by Oakland as the thirteenth overall pick. Green currently has a triple slash of .288/.350/.401 in the Texas League (Double A).

I couldn't watch much of the game but I did see Green's rocket off the centerfield wall for a double. There was an unbelievable amount of talent on the field though, so hopefully I can catch a replay of the game. Great job, Grant. Way to make the Cape Cod Baseball League proud.
