"What's growin' on the Farm Report:" Only Action Saxon, the Staten Island Ferocity

His name is Saxon Butler - Babe, to you - and he leads the NYP-League with 10 home runs, almost nearly twice as many as the runner-up. He also leads the league in RBIs. He's the most dangerous butler since Alfred.
He's 22, a recent 33rd round draftee from Alabama, David Robertson country, and the Joy of Sax is a linebackerish 6'2", 240-pound bear from the Joba Chamberlain/Fred Flinstone School of Male Modeling. He's listed as a LH-hitting firstbaseman, though his best defensive position is probably DH. He went to Samford University, which is not a typo for a more prestigious place. He's hitting a crisp .308, still looking for his first stolen base. (That's a joke.) He's on course to eclipse last year's NYP League HR leader, Jeff Malm, who belted 12, and who knows, maybe he can chase the Marcel Ozuna's 21 dingers in 2010!

Don't believe me? Here are the facts.

So what?

He will be hitting .168 if he ever reaches AAA, about 10 years from now.

And he'll be 31.

What a reach for something to get excited about.
