Laird’s perfect day helps Surprise win again

By

AzFL Surprise (12-5 win over Mesa)
Brandon Laird: 5 for 5, 3 R, 1 2B, 1 RBI – amazingly, he was only the second best Surprise hitter today … Moose tacos drove in seven
Colin Curtis: 1 for 5, 1 R, 1 HR, 2 RBI – threw a runner out at second from RF

Still no Dominican Winter League or Puerto Rican League rosters. The DWL starts tomorrow, and I don’t know what they’re waiting for.

    Moose Tacos? I feel left out of the inside joke.

    Still no Dominican Winter League or Puerto Rican League rosters. The DWL starts tomorrow, and I don’t know what they’re waiting for.

    They’re waiting for the end of National Hispanic Heritage Month. It’s September 15th to October 15th.

    It’s like Ramadan, you have to fast and not release roster information for a month.

      Good thought, but that only explains the laziness for one of the twelve months.

        No, it’s just double the laziness for that one month.

    DOTFs without any pitching: snooze.

    Thanks Mike, bet you wish all these were this easy, huh?

    Colin Curtis: future 4th OF? Cheaper version of X Nady?

    • Charlie

      i don’t think curtis has much power or general hitting ability. maybe, though

      Probably not a good enough bat. His 2009 minor league line of .247/.316/.353 has a major league equivalency of .210/.265/.293. That’s Varitekian.

      He can improve, but his baseline thus far doesn’t inspire confidence in that improvement happening. He hasn’t remotely shown enough yet to be considered a viable big league 4th OF for 2010.

        But, since you describe him as “Veritekian,” I assume he’ll still catch 4 no-hitters and wear a wicked awesome “C” on his chest. Right?

          Let’s move him behind the dish and have him grow a gritbeard.

            Everything Curtis knows he learned from playing with true grit in college.

            • All praise be to Mo

              Wow, he looked like that in college? That must suck being a bald midget that young…poor guy…no wonder why he had to develop all that grit…
