Fantastic seeing Jax back on the mound, regardless of the results...which weren't bad.Now if Mr. Kirilloff will join him, all will be good in Pensacola.

 

Was it a difficult decision whether to give the pitching award of the day to Enlow or Teng?

 

I recall you and others talking about how good defensively De La Torre was when he came into the organization.Several years later, is he confirming he is that good?Could be another middle infielder to watch if he continues to hit like he has in his short stay at Cedar Rapids.

 

Enlow or Teng? Not too difficult but both pitched well.

 

De La Torre. I think he's good. He's playing all over already too.

Good stuff as always Seth.I know Royce has all the tools, but his second half struggles in the FSL last year, and the first half here have allowed the likes of Michael Davis and Joe Cronin to continue the streak of leap froggers from Cedar Rapids to AA.Royce isn't really striking out a ton at all compared to earlier.So he's making contact, but just hitting to people.Is this accurate?He's got a great head on his shoulders, so I hope he's staying on the positive side of things.I was a bit surprised to see he made the ASG down there, but then again, the talent pool in the FSL-South isn't top notch right now.

 

Regarding the All Star game... Lewis is a "star." Not sure performance was a big factor ,or that it should be.

 

I also wouldn't read into the leap frogging thing... They are going to do what is best for Lewis, always... if there is a need elsewhere, they'll fill in. Cronin has jumped all over the last couple of years. Davis is older than Lewis. When they deem Lewis ready for AA ,he'll move up.
