Player Spotlight: C George Forrest and LF Les Cloud

I'm taking the time tonight to discuss 2 players that really don't get much attention in Doubleday. San Francisco's George Forrest and Louisville's Les Cloud.

George Forrest has played his entire career in San Francisco thus far and has been one of if not the top production in that offense. With limited durability and play time Forrest has managed to average 37 HR's and 93 RBI per season. Forrest is a 3 time All Star as well. This season San Francisco is finally back in a position to win the AL West. Could this be the year Forrest gets a shot to win a ring? We will find out in 40 games.

Les Cloud was drafted 10th in the 1st round of the season 1 draft. He worked up through the minors in season 1 and into season 2.. Toward the end of season 2 Cloud was promoted to the Big leagues and performed very well. Since then he's averaged 40 HR's and 105 RBI per season in Louisville. Cloud is a 3 time All Star and Season 3 Rookie of the Year. Louisville is not done this season and could reclaim the division lead when it's all said and done.. Cloud could just be the one to help them get there.
