    Mike, what do you think about Jose Ramirez? I hear he touches 95-96.

    • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike Axisa

      I honestly don’t know much about him. He’s one of the guys I need to my research on for.

  • Accent Shallow

    Mini-Tex has a 61.5% groundball rate. Not bad.

  • Johan Iz My Brohan

    Cody Ransom: 0 for 1, 1 Bb, 1 K – left the game for an unkown reason

    Shit, he isn’t coming to the big league club…right, RIGHT????

    • whozat

      If they couldn’t center a package around him to bring back Pujols, I don’t know what Cash is doing.

      I’d psyched if he were the PTBNL in the Gaudin deal :-)

  • Munson’s Stache

    When do we start considering Venditte to be legit? He still had video game numbers.

    • Johan Iz My Brohan

      and abilities only found in video games as well.

    • Accent Shallow

      If he can do this in AA, I might start to believe. But he’ll have to do it (or at least be serviceable) in AAA before I think of him as a potential MLB contributor.

  • AndrewYF

    Josh Schmidt was drafted in 2005, so he’s eligible for the Rule V draft. Do the Yankees add him to the 40-man in the offseason? Do they bring him up in September?

  • Thee4stringking

    Jackson really needs to stop K’ing…

    • Camilo Gerardo

      He’ll do waht he wants

  • Dustin

    I was at the Durham-Scranton game tonight. We had a good rally in the 9th but were stymied for almost the whole game before that; our only two hits before the 9th were the solo shots. Miranda’s homer was crushed to center. J-Rod’s barely cleared the wall in right, but his 2-run double was key, and a 3rd runner may have been able to score, but our 3B coach held him up and he stayed there when Corona popped out to short and then Stewart grounded out to short. Frustrating, almost as much as Igawa’s crappy pitching. I see one Scranton-Bulls game a year, and last year I also happened to see Igawa lose a game for us (though he didn’t give up too many runs last year, and didn’t have the one big inning like tonight). I think I curse the team because I’ve yet to see them win in three tries, including a rain-out. Wish I’d been able to go last night to see us crush Sonnanstine, who I drafted for my fantasy team this year.

    What’s up with Shelley? He hasn’t played in 2 nights and never came in to pinch-hit tonight.

    I was wondering why Cody left the game. Even after E-Dunc came in, they kept Ransom’s name on the lineup on the video board for the rest of the game.

  • Clemson Rob

    Any chances Mechill gets promoted soon? I saw him play against Clemson in the Regional playoffs this year and he is legit.

  • BigYank1

    I was also at the Scranton game, Dustin’s report is right on. Igawa was throwing belt-high fastballs(88-89mph) over the middle of the plate. Why Cashman didn’t let the Padres have him on the waiver claim(a couple seasons ago), I’ll never no.

    AJax seemed to need a little more patience at the plate, chased a few high fastballs out of the zone. He got ahead in the count one time and thats when he got the hit.

    One more thing, Michael Dunn looked like he could help in the future, he was sitting in the mid 90’s. His command could be better but Durham couldn’t square up his pitches.
