You had to respect the rules.“I probably couldn’t tell you one player who liked wearing black boots, but it was the rule and something accustomed to every academy player.“If someone tried to come out in red boots it’s like ‘you’re no different to any of us so get your black boots back on until you’ve earned the right to wear coloured boots’.“You always wear black boots, you always turn up to meetings on time, you always go to school, everybody does the same thing.“There are no big egos, there’s no young kids coming in wearing jewellery and looking a bit flash, that’s not the case at this club.“If a young player was doing that, I’d certainly be one to say something, the same with other boys in the first-team and the manager as well.” • by RotoWire Staff

Owned in just four percent of leagues, former first-round draft pick has been a pleasant surprise for his small pool of owners, hitting .304 with an .803 OPS over 46 at-bats this season. 

Gillaspie has been the primary beneficiary of Gordon Beckham’s broken wrist, with Jeff Keppinger moving to second and Gillaspie playing third for the . Gillaspie showed some flashes of power in the minors (although it was in the hitter-happy PCL), while hitting for a decent average (.287) over 1,894 at-bats. He doesn’t offer much in the way of speed, but he could steal a base or two.  

He won’t hit .304 the rest of the year — Gillaspie probably will end up around .260 — but he has been playing every day, and full-time at-bats are tough to come by in the deeper single-league formats. Even without power and speed, Gillaspie could bring some runs and RBI, just frdjustments he’s made since replacing Rino Gattuso.Giampaolo changed the system to 4-3-1-2, but also focused more on passing, possession and being proactive.He said, “We are working on macro-principles right now, then we need to get into the detailsom being a regular.
