DotF: Baby Bombers twirl another no-no

DotF: Tyler going at a bad Clip
The impending end of Kyle Farnsworth?

Another day, another no-hitter for the Baby Bombers. Tampa had a 7 inning no hitter as the rehabbing Jose Veras and Dan McCutchen combined for the no no. Ian Kennedy had a strong game going 5 with 3 hits and 2 runs. AJax continues to hit as he had a double in the first game and his 7th home run in the second game.

Scranton (def Charlotte 7-2)
Brett Gardener 2-5, 2 R
Kevin Reese 2-3, HR (Grand Slam), R, 5 RBI
Raul Chavez 2-4, 2 R. Can hear Will Nieves footsteps.
Jeff Karstens 6 IP, 3 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 6 K One more scheduled start before he gets the recall.

Trenton (7-2 def New Britain)
Juan Miranda 2-5, 2B, R, 3 RBI
Alberto Gonzalez 3-4, 2B, R, 3 RBI
PJ Pilitiere 2-5
Gabriel Lopez 2-3, 2 R
Ian Kennedy 5 IP, 3 H, 2 ER, 1 BB, 6 K. Good to see Mini-Moose pitch again. He hasn’t pitched since July 12. His last run was the result of a pop up/SF in which the third basemen and SS collided in foul territory.

Tampa (def Lakeland 4-0) Game 1 (7 innings) No Hitter
Austin Jackson 1-4 2B
Jose Tabata 0-4
Tim Battle 2-3, R
Francisco Cervelli 1-3
Kevin Russo 2-3, 2B
Marcos Veccionacchi 1-3, HR, R, 2 RBI Surprisingly this is Vecci’s 1st home run of the year.
Jose Veras 2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 4 K
Daniel McCutchen 5 IP, 0 H, 5 BB, 2 K McCutchen has an 11-2 record. Add him to the A list.

Tampa (def 4-3 Lakeland ) Game 2
Austin Jackson 1-4, HR, 2 RBI. Ajax has hit 7 HR’s and .378 since his call up
Reggie Corona 1-3, R, Rbi, BB, SB (20th)

Marcos Veccionacchi 1-3 2B
Anthony Claggett 5 IP, 7 IP, 3 R, 2 ER, 3 BB, 5 K
David Robertson 2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 5 K. Already on the A list. What a great draft we had in 2006 with RHP’s Kennedy, Chamberlain, Robertson, McAllister and McCutchen picked, as well as the injured Melacon.

Charleston (Ashville def Charleston 5-3)
Mitch Hilligoss 2-4
Josue Calzada 2-4, 2B, HR, 2 RBI

    i like DotF much more when i don’t have to click a link to finish reading. i know that may make me sound lazy, but your page flows much better when you can just scroll down and read all of the stories without having to open multiple windows/tabs.

    just my two cents.

  • The Scout

    For those keeping tabs on the 2006 draft, do not forget to add Betances and Kontos to the interesting list of pitching talent. A few more of these guys are bound to get hurt, but it’s still an impressive group.

    When Shelly Duncan came up, the announcers pointed out he was a 2nd round draft choice in 2001. That prompted me to take a look on the Baseball America web site at past Yankee 1st round draft choices, going back to Derek Jeter. That list, alas, is enough to make you cry. We’re going to need a few more years like 2006 to wash away the past.

  • Pettitte’s stare

    I know there isn’t really room but I would like to see McCutchen moved up by the end of the year. In September he will be 25 so he isn’t exactly a young guy for A ball.

  • Joseph P.


    Normally, we have a ton of other material on the site, so not inserting the “read more” button would bury something else.

    But, since this is going to be a light week, it does make sense to just let it hang there.

  • Steve A

    Hey fellas. Any word on 2007 draft signings? I haven’t seen an update anywhere since Pete Abe’s post a few weeks ago. Thanks!

  • Joseph P.

    Nothing yet, Steve. There have been reports of many of the players having a deal in place, but the announcement being delayed because they are so far above slot value.

    You’ll see news here the second we hear it.

  • Steve A

    Thanks Joseph. I’ve heard that MLB has a gag-order on announcing signings for slot reasons as well. I’m pretty sure Brackman will sign, but I’d really like to see them ink Angelini and Peavey. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.

  • Kyle

    Its funny baseball site keep talking about the fact that there haven’t been any above lost sigingings in the first 5 rounds yet, and I just keep thinking “wait until the Yanks start announcing”

    We probably wont hear about most of the above slot guys until right around August 15th

  • Ben K.

    Don’t hold your breath about Peavey. All indications are that he’s heading to college and not to the pros yet.

  • dan

    McCutchen isn’t on the A list. he’s 24 in the FSL striking out just under 6 per 9 IP. at best he’s a trading chip in my opinion.
