As difficult as it is to admit, trading away one of the best minor leaguers in baseball sure does seem like a move Doug Melvin would make in what’s hopefully the final half of his final season as the Milwaukee Brewers’ General Manager. The young man I’m referring to is Orlando Arcia, who has been raking at AA Biloxi all season for the Brewers affiliate. Arcia, 20, is having...
