Word is Kyle Lohse to be DL’d tomorrow and Jess Todd will be taking his place on the roster. When confirmed, I’m sure it will get it’s own thread. – HL
For tonight’s DFR, we’ve got the farm going 1-2-DNP, with lots and lots of runs scored by…well, you’ll just have to read and find out.
But the spell was broken, and Razumov interrupted him boldly, under a sudden conviction that this was the safest attitude to take. With a great flow of words he complained of being totally misunderstood. Even as he talked with a perception of his own audacity he thought that the word “misunderstood” was better than the word “mistrusted,” and he repeated it again with insistence.
Suddenly he ceased, being seized with fright before the attentive immobility of the official. “What am I talking about?” he thought, eyeing him with a vague gaze. Mistrusted–not
misunderstood–was the right symbol for these people.
Misunderstood was the other kind of curse. Both had been brought on his head by that fellow Haldin. And his head ached terribly. He passed his hand over his brow–an involuntary gesture of suffering, which he was too careless to restrain.
- Joe Mather, AWAKE! Joe Mather, Mark Shorey and Shane Robinson all went 2-for-4. Joey Bombs, however, was the only to live up to his namesake, unless Shane made cotton candy.
- Tyler Greene was all contacty with a 3-for-5 day and 2 errors.
- Allen Craig had the only other XBH with a double, going 3-for-5.
- PJ Walters continues to struggle. Once the mystical prospect that stole my heart, PJ seems to have given everything he had to his shutout a few weeks ago. He went 5 innings tonight, gave up 4 ERs on 8 hits. He only walked 1 and struckout 5.
- Charlie Manning did not face 5 straight lefties but was still used 2.1 innings because this is minor league baseball and he isn’t really considered a prospect. He walked 1, gave up a hit and managed 2 ERs.
- Fernando Salas is all funkified right now. He didn’t record an out when he came in the game. He allowed 2 ERs for Charlie Manning to score and gave up a grand slam of his own.
- Kat Maekawa was asked to clean up that mess (although Fernando cleaned it up all on his own with that grand slam!) and pitched 1.2 innings of scoreless baseball. He walked 1, struckout 1 and gave up 2 hits.
- DJ Tools continues to get on base in the leadoff spot. He was 3 for 5 with a walk and 2 runs scored. His OBP is .412, which has him 9th in the Texas League. I’m sure redundancy of handedness by position is what keeps him in Springfield.
- Donovan Solano and Pete Kozma were both 2 for 5. Kozma hit his first Texas League homerun and drove in 2 runs.
- Old Wooden Shoes, Curt Smith was 3-for-5 with a double and 2 RBIs. I missed you too, Curt.
- Tyler Henley, my favorite Eagle, hit 2 doubles.
- Daniel Descalso had a double as well.
- David Kopp was 1-for-2 with a run scored.
- David Kopp gave up 5 runs in 4.2 innings. He struck out 1, walked 3 and gave up 8 hits.
- Eduardo Sanchez finished the 5th inning for him with a groundout.
- Tyler Norrick picked up the win with 2 innings of shutout ball. He walked 1 and got 5 of his 6 outs by strikeout. He did balk, but I think at that point he felt bad for the hitters.
- Marco Gonzalez struck out 1 and gave up a hit in his 1 inning.
- Eddie Degerman struck out 1 in his inning.
- Colt Sedbrook was 2-for-5 with an RBI.
- Francisco Rivera hit the only XBH in the game, a triple, on his way to a 2-for-4 day.
- Charlie Swauger and Domnits are Forever Bolivar were both 2-for-4, as well.
- Brian Broderick, ugh. In his 2.1 innings, he scattered 11 hits to the tune of 8 ERs. He walked 1 and gave up a 2-R HR.
- Blake King calmed things down in his 3.2 innings, giving up an unearned run and striking out 4. He walked 3.
- Thomas Eager hurried out there for his 2 innings, striking out 3.
The farm system, position playerwise seems to only have a few players in it (Greene and Jones) who might be able to contribute substantially to the big league club in the next year or so. The rest are either players that are playing in blocked positions, out of position or aren’t quite ready to break out. Where Brett Wallace fits in this group, I’ll leave for you to discuss.
