Heath Phillips: 2.2 IP, 4 H, 4 R, 4 ER, 5 BB, 1 K – 21 of 50 pitches were strikes (42%), eek … he also picked a runner off first
Steven Jackson: 3.1 IP, 1 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 3 K, 1 HB, 3-4 GB/FB – the forgotten man in the RJ deal, Jackson’s a pretty good pitcher, don’t dismiss him
Billy Traber: 0.1 IP, zeroes

Low-A Charleston (9-3 loss to Asheville)

Larry Day: 0 for 4, 1 R – Mr. Irrelevant started behind the dish because Hey-Zeus needed a day off after catching all 13 innings of yesterday’s game, a game he also won with solo jack on the very first pitch of the 13th inning
Zach McAllister: 3 IP, 11 H, 9 R, 8 ER, 2 BB, 3 K, 1 WP, 3-3 GB/FB – hide the children … ERA went from 0.92 to 2.57 … games like this are good for young pitchers, you learn a bunch more from getting pounded than you do from dominating … he was due for a clunker, no biggie

    Creating Charleston, saving the River Dogs…it’s a full time job, Jesus! Get with the program.

    In all seriousness, how is Romine recovering?

    wondering if you guys could help me out here, i know it has nothing to do with the post but still, i posted it in the last one and i just want to make a point, so i apologize now (is it toooooo late to apologize)

    people keep saying cashman should have signed lilly or meche instead of igawa, my question is does anyone remember if they were type a free agents, i’m pretty sure they weren’t but if they were B would we have lost a draft pick ? i’m pretty sure we wouldn’t but if we did, we drafted brackman that year … i know he hasn’t pitched a hoot yet, but still, i’d take brackman and lilly over lilly or meche anyday

    i could be wrong so if i am … whoopsie daisies.

      They were both Type B’s. The M’s took Oklahoma State 3B Matt Mangini with the pick they got for Meche (#52 overall), and the Jays took Louisville closer Trystan Magnuson with the pick they got for Lilly (#56 overall).

      Granted, not losing a draft pick is nice, but it’s not like these guys are studs. Lilly has a 5.24 ERA in the NL Central including his gem from today, and Meche … sheesh, 6.31 ERA in the Central.

      I’d much rather take my chances with Hughes & IPK than overpay for mediocrity.

    Jackson’s supposed to be a GB pitcher. If I’m looking at his stats correctly, his GB/FB ratio for the season is now 13/9. Isn’t that a little cause for concern? Plus, before tonight his OPS against was .825.

  4. MD says:

    question: Edwar G, Colin C, Andres P…..are these guys legit prospects….do we see them as starting OF in the majors?

  5. gil says:

    Any one else feel like S. Jackson is making some adjustments. Yes he has more FB outs this year, but he also as more K’s per 9 also. I think he could be sleeper this year.
