Both guys have work to do.

Is Landa a Bullpen guy or do you think he can make it as a starter? I know his control has been an issue in the past.

Hopefully the errors are just early season jitters. Hopefully things calm down a bit for them and the game will start to slow down in the field.

The Miracle look very good in their first few games. Harrison is doing a nice job in LF and I agree with Seth in the move for Polanco and Goodrum as being good for both of them. I expect they will both switch back by mid season as well.

My question becomes: What will happen to the outfield rotation when Lance Ray, Byron Buxton, Nate Roberts and J.D. Williams get off the DL in Fort Myers? Who is expected to come off the list first and what will be the trickle down affect throughout the organization? There are a lot of quality OF prospects in this system above High A level. Ortiz - Krisvnicka - Mitchell - Mastrioni - Etc.

Seth, what is the current status of Rosario? Does anyone know what is gaining on with him and his personal issues?

Mejia has 3 errors in 3 games for New Britain. Vielma has a few errors in Cedar Rapids...

I think Landa is a bullpen guy until he shows he can have a little more control. he's so young. That can happen, and it may happen during this season. Remember with a 6-man rotation in Cedar Rapids, the bullpen guys can get stretched out 2-4 innings as needed.

He's currently suspended. He also has not yet reported to Ft. Myers. At this point, why he hasn't reported is personal. There's been too much speculation already, so I'm not going to guess.

Dan Turpin pitched 3 very strong innings this morning against a real good Orioles team. I don't believe he allowed a hit, and the good guys were up 2-0. Sano is back. It's pouring rain now so the Miracle game could be washed, as it's supposed to rain all day.
