In his final chat with, former Angels Scouting Director Eddie Bane said “Lindsey was the best pure hitter we had in Arizona. He is not bothered by velocity and always has his hands in the right place to hit. Premium kid and premium bat.” Abe Flores told that Lindsey’s bat was ahead of his defense at the end of 2010, but that his defense has “vastly improved. There is a nice upside to him.”

Well, if by a "nice upside to him" Abe Flores meant that Lindsey would hit for the cycle in a game where he went 5 for 5, post a .368/.402/.632 line with 7 HRs and 5 SBs, then Abe and Eddie were onto something. Drafted in the 1st round of the 2010 draft (37th overall) Lindsey is an up-and-coming left handed 2B who at age 19 is well on the way to making a great name for himself.

Normally would be posting this interview during the week, but after a special night like that, why wait.
