    The King is Bakk Baby, double that woohoo

    AP was reporting Phil hit 94 on the gun. Good sign his velocity isn’t oo off. He also told AP that he had no lingering effects from the 2 injuries.

    Jackson has just been unbelievable. Hopefully he’s had that moment where everything just clicked. You have to hand it to Mark Newman and the brass overseeing the minors. Seemed strange that they would promote Jackson given his numbers in Charleston but whatever works.

    Jackson, Tabata, and Miranda are all on fire. Miranda seems to really be driving the ball.

    Mike,
    What’s your take on how good Robertson really is. His numbers are almost comic – the kind that can only come from just being far too accomplished/ good for the level he’s at. How much upside do you think he has? If whelan figures out his mechanics those are some nice arms for the pen.

  • Zack

    Great to see both Hughes and Hilligoss back, and Tabata and Jackson continue their pace…

  • C-Note

    Hughes is going to be a freakin monster, god – it was so depressing when he got hurt, and I didn’t think it would be until Aug to see him again- he’s making a start @ trenton saturday… can’t wait
    Hughes knocking Igawa out of the rotation has a certain poetry about it- out with what hasn’t worked, onto the future, with our own arms-
    the Game in Tampa was a great diplay of future talent, PHIL, tabata, Action Jackson— Kontos has been really good, I agree that coming out of the pen f*cked him up

    Great that we’re so loaded with Hughes and the guys at AA, no need to rush Betances or the guys who are coming off surgery or this years draft picks

    nice to see Ohlendorf giving it to 18 year olds, 3 ER in 4 innings? Hey, I’m not giving up on the guy, I just wanna see Horne have a spot in the AAA rotation over Ohlendorf, Chase or Matty De- of those four guys who has the best stuff, who’s having the best year, who is potentially closer to helping the ballclub in the Bronx? I’m thinking Horne, maybe after the AA all star game they’ll give him a shot in scranton

    Robertson, if he keeps doing this, should eventually be in trenton, with some relievers you can promote them very agrresively(see K-Rod summer of 2002) I’m not saying bring him to the bronx, just a plane ticket to trenton

  • Barry

    i can’t wait, hes been sitting pretty on my fantasy DL for how long now :-(

    CB-
    Robertson’s very good, but not as good as those numbers obviously. He was good in college, not great, but he worked with Nardi after signing and tweaked his mechanics and changed some grips on his pitches, and voila!

    He’s an older guy (23 I think), so he is old for his level. I’d like to see them move him to Trenton at the end of the month if he keeps it up.

    still no word on Angelini? Fucking Bud Selig
