    And his defense seems as good as advertised.

    Man, I really like what we've seen from Florimon so far - I'm getting more and more optimistic about this kid every time I see him.

    A QS from Brian Duensing, who'd a thunk.

    Damn -- Plouffe came within a couple of feet of a home run on that one.

    Makes you wonder how on earth he was hitting .259 with a .318 OBP in Rochester, I know it's early but he sure looks capable of a lot more than that.

    Maybe it's Joe Vavra......procede.

    Apparently he plays SS, LF and short centre, all at the same time.

    I've been mildly impressed with Fien every time he enters a game.

    I didn't get a chance to review where Duensing's pitches were in the zone tonight, but perhaps he had a chat with Diamond about how to get the ball down and on the corners. Let's hope the this outing is a real change rather than an aberration.

    With that hit, Florimon is back to .500.

    His location inside against RH was far better tonight, which for him is huge. His breaking pitches were hitting the corners as well.

    The A's announcers are drooling a little over Florimon.

    After being swept sleepless in Seattle I was worried the team was ready to crawl into the fetal position the rest of the way. I very glad to be disappointed. Some want us to lose games the rest of the way in order to climb up the draft board. I want to see the team compete with these new guys and win as much as possible... on a good note going into next year.

    Good to hear. Duensing really becomes one dimensional when his slider and curve are not biting and up.

    Yeah, curious for sure. Pitchers will adjust to him, but his defense is really smooth and doesn't look like he has any physical weaknesses to be concerned about either. (Strong arm, good range, good instincts) As long as that continues I see no reason not to throw him out there the rest of the year and see how the league handles him here.

    Darnit, was really hoping Florimon would get the chance to go 4-4. Let down....
