    yeah ... I've got that one ... and here's the gameday link ...
    Trenton vs. New Britain - August 19, 2013 | MiLB.com Gameday | The Official Site of Minor League Baseball

    It wasn't on the top of the page; had to go 'searching' for it.

    In other minor league news, Pinto hit his first AAA homerun. Nice.

    Rosario has gone the other way 3 times. His double and first fly out to left were tagged pretty good. Hasn't had a difficult defensive chance to really see his footwork.

    Sano made a nice play charging in on a slow roller with a strong throw. Based on that play alone from an athletic standpoint.... He can play third. If he is still struggling with the glove at third. Reps ought to take care of it. If he's hungry.

    At the plate... His Swing looks great... A classic power stroke. Flew out to RF and he looped out to left with a ball off the handle.

    He did hit a long foul.

    It amazes me how some people have the answer to absolutely everything. I always have AN answer, but never THE answer.

    Wish I could see all this instead of just listen to it.

    That last play by Rosario was pretty decent. He got a good jump on that ball.

    Is he really well regarded? With a real shot at a major league career? He just hasn't shown all that much at bat, IMO, except in short (150 PA) bursts, and he's now getting a bit old for there to be many chances left. But... maybe I'm missing something in the young fella.

    PS, when I was in FM last spring and hung around the minor league fields, I heard other players call him by nickname: Squiggly. Maybe just a short term thing.

    On Sept. 1 I'll be in the stands at Hammond Field to see the final Miracle game of the season. Am looking forward to it ... even if it is a day game and will be hotter than, well, maybe not quite hell, but hot enough.

    You know I'm jealous of you. Except for the living in Chicago thing you do.

    Right. He should have had that, and he did. So that's good. It looked nice though.

    Yep. The Twins need to be scheduling more day games and putting the future on in prime time more often. Having the actual game on, and not talking heads TK and Roy blubbering and taking up virtually the whole screen, with great plays like Byron Buxton's Catch of the Century occasionally acknowledged in a small pop-up bubble, is a nice upgrade, too.

    He doesn't need to. He reads it all here. I swore to him that I would not reveal his TD pseudonym, but it's... <ulp> <Urg> <ugh!>....

    You know, I read pretty much all of the minor league updates, and I don't think I've ever seen the name Blake Martin before. Maybe I just forgot.
