"The Boy Who Saved Baseball"

...In Pittsburgh at least.  Xavier has always been a favorite of mine and not many other people have taken the time to write about him.  I have an Email alert for Xavier Nady and most of the time I just get game summaries and box scores.  Today I got this.  I don't care if this person only took five minutes to write this because it is a very good story and Xavier deserves more recognition.  In the early season Nate McLouth has gotten the "props" from anybody that is trying to find something positive about the bottom feeding Pirates.  I have nothing against Nate McLouth but I would appreciate it if Xavier got some kind words from the media as well.  Xavier has been known to have fast starts and slow down as the season progresses.  He also has been injury prone and that has caused him to never play a full season.  Last year he had perhaps his best year yet and this year he doesn't look like he is slowing down.  I hope he keeps going and gets the attention he deserves.

Let's Go Mets!
