Humberto Sanchez … ugh


Let’s do a chat tomorrow, how’s 3pm sound? Help ya get through that last few hours on a Friday. Here’s our past chats.

AzFL Peoria (13-1 loss to Phoenix)
Austin Jackson: 1 for 4, 1 R, 1 HR, 1 RBI – took a guy who throws kinda sorta hard deep
Juan Miranda: 0 for 3, 1 BB - 0 for his last 11
Humberto Sanchez: 0 IP, 6 H, 6 R, 6 ER, 0 BB, 0 K, 1 WP – my eyes, the goggles do nothing!!! … 16 of 26 pitches were strikes (61.5%)
Kevin Whelan: 1.1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 1 K, 2-1 GB/FB - only 12 of 23 pitches were strikes (52.2%)

HWB Waikiki had a scheduled off day.

Wednesday’s Games

AzFL Peoria (16-5 win over Phoenix)
Juan Miranda: 0 for 5, 1 BB, 2 K - 16 runs & 21 hits and he takes an 0-fer? lame…

HWB Waikiki beat West Oahu 9-8, but no Yankees’ prospects played in the game. This was Jeremy Bleich‘s rotation turn, but he didn’t pitch. Not sure what that’s about. Oh, and Damon Sublett hasn’t played in over week. Hawaii hasn’t been too kind to the Yanks over the years, you may remember Mark Melancon & Chris Garcia blew out their elbows here in 2006.

Loyal reader Angel tells me that Brett Gardner will play for Toros de Este of the Dominican Winter League. He hasn’t played in a game yet.

    lol. Did Sanchez start or come in relief? What is his role on the team? I hadn’t seen him in any of the DOTF this winter but I guess I hadn’t really been following that closely. Was this his first appearance?

  2. aaron empty says:

    best simpsons reference ever! McBane!!!!

  3. Ivan says:

    Hey is that Rising Stars game in the AzFL on milb.com for free or showing on milb.com period.

  4. dan says:

    Hey, at least Sanchez didn’t walk anybody.

  5. dan says:

    I’d just like to point out that if you guys didn’t post that thing about Clemens a few days ago, it would have been about a year since a post tagged as “STEROIDS!”

    • Jamal G. says:

      I’m pretty sure RAB had some posts up about the Roger Clemens-Brian McNamee hearings.

      Historical accuracy FAIL.

      • dan says:

        I was reading the date wrong. On the little blue box where the date is displayed, the month is the big number, I thought it was the date. It was posted 4/11, not 11/4.

        Date reading FTL

  6. Mulls says:

    great! fatburger sanchez killing his trade value

  7. ben says:

    it was just a bad day for the big guy!! lets not forget this league is usually to work on stuff!! obviously he wasnt trying to get lit up like a christmas tree but things happen..he’ll bounce back!

  8. Bo says:

    I can’t believe people get worked up about results from the Arizona Fall League.

  9. CountryClub says:

    Bleich doesnt follow Brackman any more. They had that power outage game and the next day he didnt pitch. He pitched the game after that. In short, there’s a pitcher in between Brackman and Bleich now.

  10. JohnC says:

    Sanchez could be going through a dead arm period. Don’t forget he’s been going no stop for a year and a half between rehab throwing then pitching in the minors then majors. Bound to have a bump in the road somewhere following TJ surgery.

  11. A.D. says:

    Silver lining – Sanchez threw strikes, and got some work in
