    I was at the Trenton game today (guessed I jinxed them as they lost their winning streak).

    Hughes looked great in the first two innings, striking out the side in both innings. My favorite part about him was the location of the fastball. The catcher didn’t move a muscle on almost every fastball, right at the top of the knees.

    Miranda’s homer was an opposite field shot, and he went the other way with foul balls on other AB’s as well. I was expecting a big unathletic guy who pulled everything, but he seemed like he had a solid approach at the plate. He also pulled a double down the right field line for another RBI. He made some misplays at first base, but I don’t pretend to be able to tell all that much about a guy from watching one game.

    Mike, you nailed it about Jones. He’s probably one of the top 15-20 pitchers in the league, but 5 of the others are on this team. That’s a good problem to have. It’s basically to the point where Cashman almost has to trade some of the young arms for either major league help (first base) or for some hitting prospects.

    Seems like we see those lines from Snyder and Sublett almost every game. Would like to see how Snyder does in a full season league, but I would understand if that has to wait until next year.
