Solid day of pitching on Friday for the Twins with Hamburger, Dean, Lee, Stewart and Jorge all going in the MiLB. Unfortunately all of the start times pretty much over lap. But if you have MiLB tv, you can watch Hamburger, and Dean. http://www.milb.com/...edia/milbtv.jsp

Check out this article about the Cedar Rapids game last night from Jeff Johnson of The Gazette in Cedar Rapids. Sounds pretty intense.

Hicks' BA is looking solid, but he still is not getting any extra base hits! Two 2B's and 2 HR's so far is a little discouraging. I also notice he is playing RF, while Rosario is in CF. I don't ever see him as much of a corner OF'er, but his size and athleticism should produce more extra base-hits.

Rosario is playing LF, CF and 2B
Hicks is playing LF, CF and RF

Lots of time for each.

Is anybody as excited as me that we have a 32 year old pitching a complete game in AA ball?

The fact that ERolf calls him "Virgin Vasquez" doesn't even surprise me a little bit.
