Down on the Farm

By

The field of 64 is out; I’m going with Texas as my early pick for the CWS Title, although I’m looking forward to seeing how far Brian Matusz & Josh Romanski (aka the best 1-2 rotation punch in the nation, remember those names for the 2008 draft) can carry San Diego.

Triple-A Scranton (2-0 win over Toledo)
Andy Phillips: 2 for 3, 1 R – only 1 RBI and 1 XBH in last 7 games…
Eric Duncan: 1 for 3
Bronson Sardinha: 1 for 3, 1 RBI – nearly 50 games into the year, and he still hovering near the Mendoza line…
Alberto Gonzalez: 0 for 3
Roger Clemens: 6 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 2 BB, 6 K – they should let him play in the Futures Game
Edwar Ramirez: 2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 3 K – WHIP skyrockets up to 0.82, Kper 9 plummets down to 16.83…
Jim Brower: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 2 K – he’s been with the organization for only 22 days, and he’s already got twice as many saves (6) as Mo (3)…

Double-A Trenton (7-6 win over Connecticut)
Carlos Mendoza: 1 for 3, 3 R, 1 2B, 2 BB
Jamal Strong: 1 for 4, 2 RBI
Shawn Garrett: 2 for 4, 2 RBI – 0 XBH in past 7 games…
Aarom Baldiris: 3 for 4, 2 R, 1 HR, 1 RBI, 1 E (missed catch) - mini-breakout after mustering only 4 H in previous 22
Alan Horne: 6 IP, 7 H, 4 R, 1 ER, 2 BB, 7 K, 1 HB, 1 E (pickoff), 9-1 GB/FB – the K/BB ratio is ridiculous (73-13), but I’m lovin’ the 2.03 GB/FB ratio…I told ya he’d be a stud if he got his control together…
Zach Kroenke: 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 1 K – 1 ER and 22 baserunners in 25 IP this year

High-A Tampa had a scheduled off day.

Low-A Charleston (12-11 loss to Rome, walk-off style)
Mitch Hilligoss: 3 for 6, 3 R, 1 SB - hit streak at 34 games, only 1 behind former 88th round draft pick of the Yanks, Scott Seabol, for the Sally League record…
Seth Fortenberry: 2 for 6, 3 R, 1 2B, 1 RBI – has the same number of strikeouts this year as…
Austin Jackson: 1 for 4, 2 R, 1 2B, 2 RBI, 1 BB
Chris Malec: 2 for 3, 2 R, 1 2B, 1 RBI, 2 BB, 1 SB – 30 walks, only 19 K this year…I told ya he rarely strikes out…(I also said he was a prime September ’07 call-up option, but you can ignore that)
Kevin Smith: 2 for 5, 2 RBI, 2 K
Andres Perez: 2 for 3, 2 RBI, 1 BB, 1 SB
Jose Gil: 2 for 5, 1 R, 1 HR, 1 RBI, 1 K
Edgar Soto: 2.1 IP, 6 H, 7 R, 5 ER, 4 BB, 2 K, 1 WP – 19 baserunners allowed in last 7.1 IP
David Robertson: 1.2 IP, 3 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 1 BB, 4 K – first time he’s allowed more than 1 ER in an outing all year
Jon Hovis: 1.1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 1 K
Garrett Patterson: .2 IP, 2 H, 3 R, 1 ER, 2 BB, 0 K, 1 WP – 38 baserunners allowed in last 12.1 IP…oi

    What’s keeping Britton and Edwar Ramirez in Sranton, other than Joe’s trust in young relievers? He likes to know what he can expect from his relievers but c’mmon that isn’t always a good thing with this group. It’s clear the bullpen isn’t getting any better so why not shake things up and trade Farnsworth and even dump Vizcaino if we need to.

    Let’s go Rutgers!

    How about that Todd Frazier character?

    13 for 25 (.520) with 12 runs, 5 doubles, 3 homers and 7 RBIs in the Big East tourney (6 games).

  4. Someone posted this on Minorleagueball.com

    Overall, the Trenton pitching staff has a 1.08 WHIP and an ERA of 2.16.

    It is almost absurd how good they have been all year.

  5. [...] Two years ago today on DotF, Roger Clemens struck out six in six shutout innings for Triple-A Scranton. [...]
