Ackley Named AFL MVP

Dustin Ackley has been named the MVP of the Arizona Fall League.

Pulling from the P-I post, "Ackley led the league in hitting (.424), on-base percentage (.581), slugging percentage (.758), OPS (1.338) and runs (28). He had 19 RBIs and four homers in 20 games. He also drew 26 walks and stole five bases on five attempts."

If you project those homers over a full season, that's 32 bombs!  

Joking aside... small sample, yes.  Arizona Fall League, yes.  But that ain't chopped liver.

A reason for optimism is always welcome.
