LAKEWOOD, N.J. - The first thing you notice is how Carlos Tocci's white Lakewood BlueClaws jersey hangs from his lean torso. A few hairs dot his face - the result of two months without shaving. His English is timid, but the 18-year-old Venezuelan laughs when he hears the word cheeseburger. "I'm the skinniest guy here," Tocci said through a translator. "But, I mean, a lot of these guys have six or seven years on me. " It is what makes a .211 batting average and .513 OPS entering the weekend superficial because Tocci survived.

LAKEWOOD, N.J. - It does not say anything about failure or frustration when a player signs a professional baseball contract, but those two things are every bit as guaranteed as the money in the signing bonus. The only unknowns are when a player will have to confront them and how he will deal with the inevitable struggles and strains that come with throwing, hitting and fielding a baseball. Cornelius Cleopatrick Randolph, the 10th overall pick in last year's draft, got a crash course in failure and frustration in his first full season in the Phillies' organization.

And all of this happened just four weeks after a lightning bolt struck the house in which he used to live - the bedroom in which he used to sleep - and burned it to the ground.
