What is that loud Schafer buzz I'm hearing?


I guess after only a couple of days of ST full-squad workouts, its more than a little early to get too excited, but it appears our once and future CFer, 24 year young Jordan Schafer is once again turning heads.

In dueling articles, Bowman and O'Brien each discuss how impressive he has looked and each posit the (more or less identical) question:  Could Schafer make the team or even steal the starting role from McLouth?

To me, this is a fantastic development for the Braves and young Jordan's obviously confident statements are just hugely encouraging.

“How do I feel? Like [bleeping] success. Unbelievably good."

“I felt good coming in, but this is way beyond anything I could have expected. I couldn’t ask for anything more. This is the best that I’ve felt coming into any spring training, as far as being prepared, as far as strength-wise, just everything.”

"I feel comfortable with everything,” he said. “I don’t have any [pain].”

“The first day I was out here, Chip [Chipper Jones] was like, your swing is so much better now,” Schafer said, “because my hands are going down to the ball. I’ve tried to limit everything – no fly balls, just line drives. Try not to hit any home runs in [batting practice]. Just try to be more of a productive leadoff-type hitter that will get on base.” 


So, I'm thinking this will be something to really watch over the next four or five weeks.  Please check out the articles and comment away, if so inclined.
