  2. #2
    Tough night in the minors but isn't anyone else ecstatic that our favorite big league team is 2 games over .500 going into Memorial Day weekend?

    Thanks for the updates Seth

    Jorge
    Color me concerned at this point.
    32 IP, 18 BB, 20 SO and 52 Hits!!!
    Yikes.
    Its not like he is just wild and walking too many guys, its he is doing terrible in every aspect. If the coaching staff is really "scratching their heads" time to send him down to EST and get him ready for June 19 for the start of Appy league.
    Then we could see what Thorpe or Gonsalves could do with the opportunity.

    Once I saw that pregame lineup last night, without Kennys' name in it, I got that sinking feeling in the pit of my stomach. It doesn't sound good. This organization is snakebit. And just as Rosario and some of the top Miracle performers, possibly as well as Buxton, were on the verge of joining him in New Britain. And just as Danny Ortiz's bat is turning en fuego for the Rock Cats (slash line for May: .354/.364/.615/.979).

    I think for the short term, I might move Jorge to the bullpen. Maybe Landa could make a few starts? I'd still think that Gonsalves will get up to Cedar Rapids before the short-season, but not necessarily.

    Too bad the Iso D = .010. BB% for the year = 2%

    No doubt his future, if any, is as a Util OFer.

    Probably true, but there's nothing wrong with that.

    Ortiz is a non-prospect.

    Jorge has been worse than batting practice. His prospect status has taken a big hit.

    I know stephen is chomping at the bit and seems to be throwing well. Hope he gets a shot soon.

    Right the CR starting rotation has been a big disappointment
    Stewart is obviously fine
    Eades - not getting it done
    Sledgers - started hot now struggling
    Why they have Mildren & Montanez starting, I don't know.

    I would hope they get him theresoon
