Have you seen ‘Old School’? Did you like the movie? Do you like the name Carlos?
If you answered yes to the first two questions, then “The Hangover” is the movie for you. It is, without question, the funniest movie in the slapstick gutter humor variety that I have seen since Old School. I laughed from about 5 minutes in the entire way through the movie. Just constant hilarity. If you answered yes to the third question, than this movie is definitely for you.
The farm system goes 2-for-2 including an ugly Memphis game and a starter that continues to go winless in Palm Beach.
[Retraction update after the jump as well - azru]
- Jarrett Hoffpauir, who has rarely appeared on DFR’s this year was 2-for-4 with a double.
- Mark Shorey, also not a prospect, went 2-for-3.
- Allen Craig was 0-for-3 and Brett Wallace was 1-for-4. Wallace got the start at third with Craig at first.
- Adam Ottavino allowed 7 ER while recording just 5 outs. He walked 4 and allowed 4 hits. This is looking more and more like a lost season.
- Matthew Scherer allowed 2 hits in 3.1 scoreless innings.
- Royce Ring pitched a scoreless frame lowering his ERA to 0.42 this season. He’s got 16 strikeouts and 6 walks in 22 innings. No, he’s not a candidate to get called up barring an injury to Dennys Reyes or Trevor Miller.
- Tony Cruz was 2-for-3 with a walk. With no defined position and a .715 OPS he’s basically fallen off the prospect map.
- Steven Hill was 2-f0r-4 with a double.
- Jim Rapoport was 2-for-4.
- Trey Hearne only lasted 5 innings. He allowed 4 hits and 2 runs (1 earned) while striking out 2 and walking 3. Not his best venture but we’ve seen worse.
- Tyler Norrick struck out 1 and walked 2 in a scoreless 8th. Norrick has been reborn in the pen with 45 strikeouts in 34 innings against 16 walks. You’d like to see the walks come down but he’s a viable lefty reliever in mid-2010 with luck.
- Francisco Samuel got the call for his 12th save allowing just 1 hit in the 9th.
- Adron Chambers was 2-for-4 with a triple.
- Colt Sedbrook and Aaron Luna were 2-for-4. They each drew a walk.
- Richard Castillo allowed 8 hits in 5.2 innings. He struck out 5 and walked 2 allowing 4 ER. Castillo’s had a lot of things go wrong as his strikeout rate plummeted and he’s allowed 65 hits in 54 innings. I’m tempted to say that he was overhyped by the Cardinal Front Office (read: Jeff Luhnow [Update: After several minutes with google, I can't seem to find the interview I was recalling. The closest I get to is a quote from Luhnow that says he was "an exciting prospect". As such, I've got to take a step back from what I said. I still contend that Castillo was overhyped but it would be unfair of me to point the finger at Luhnow or the Front Office.]) but I’m willing to give him more time. Gracious of me, I know.
- Alex Castellanos was 2-for-4 with a walk.
- Charles Cutler is bored with low-A. He went 4-for-4 and is hitting .397 on the season. Ridonkulous. O ya, 1 hit went over the fence.
- Jared Bogany was 2-for-4 with a walk.
- Arquimedes Nieto went 6 innings allowing 5 hits. He struck out 1 and walked 1. The heat ray wasn’t working tonight.
- David Carpenter allowed a hit and 2 walks while striking out 2. He managed to pitch a scoreless inning though.
