While we're tooting our prospect's horns for winning accolades...Alex Dickerson wins the Florida State League (A+) Player of the Year accolade.

The 2011 3rd rounder hit for a .299/.359/.454 line and finished 2nd in the league in RBIs (88), 6th in home runs (12), 8th in batting average, 2nd in hits (142), and 3rd in doubles (31).

Those batting stats winning accolades isn't surprising considering the FSL is played in the pitcher-friendly Spring Training stadiums. Jameson Taillon also won the Eastern League Player of the Week for his 11 shutout innings right after his promotion.

The other Bradenton team, the GCL Pirates, swept the GCL Red Sox for their first Gulf Coast League (Rookie) championship today.

edit: Gerrit Cole just promoted to AAA.

“The most terrifying fact about the universe is not that it is hostile, but that it is indifferent. If we can come to terms with this indifference and accept the challenges of life within the boundaries of death, our existence as a species can have genuine meaning and fulfillment. However vast the darkness, we must supply our own light.” - Stanley Kubrick
