Greg and I were given a heads up about Copeland by a blogger acquaintance who we met at last years All Star fog out. He said we'd like him. Needless to say, we were beginning to have our doubts. Ben actually started to hit last week in the Trenton series and it emphatically continued in Bingo. Seems to have infected some other bats too. Let's hope it continues.
