Game 85: Another crappy righty we've never seen
No thanks to Ponson, Yanks crush Rangers

Sorry folks, just don’t have it in me to do the whole shebang tonight. Some quick notes:

Okay, here’s the box scores for AAA, AA, A+, A-, and SS. The Rookie GCL Yanks had their game suspended in the midde of the first due to rain.

  • Jeff Karstens made a push to replace Sidney Ponson in the rotation, giving up only 5 hits and 2 runs in 7 clean innings, outpitching the recently demoted Brett Myers.
  • The aforemented Chris Malec doubled twice while Ajax tripled. Chase Wright sucked.
  • Jesus Montero had 2 hits, but the rest of Charleston’s disappeared. Carmen Angelini made another error, and Wilkins DeLaRosa continued the conversion to start with 5+ innings of 2 hit ball.
  • Mike Lyon walked off with a solo shot.

    Wow Angelini just can not catch the ball.

      Neither did Jetes in his minor league pro ball career

      • dan

        yes, but it’s definitely not a good thing that he’s making so many errors. I sure hope he can develop his fielding skills.

        • Brandon

          it’s his freaking rookie year in pro ball, I see no issue here, the most important thing is his bat which is showing some life.

    I read the “Venditte Rules”.

    That’s a steaming pile of hot bullshit right there.

    • Brandon

      Agreed.

  • Babe’s Ghost

    That’s really too bad about the Venditte rules… because he said during the NPR interview (which was boring btw) that in the minors the batter had to declare first.

    This negates his major advantage against switch hitters, i.e., forcing them to bat like vs. like, which they’re obviously unfamiliar with. But a league that ignored steroids to fuel a home run race is always going to side with the offense isn’t it?

    Does the no warm up throws apply to switches between batters? I assume so. But it will be interesting to see how he copes.

    sux about Shelley. Just not his year.

    Guys– the rules that the MiLB just announced for Venditte are the same ones he played under in college.

  • Tripp

    DeLaRosa is a starter now?

  • Tripp

    HEY! Melancon hasn’t pitched since last Friday….What’s going on with that?

      Depth.
