Curtis finishes the season with a bomb

By

The Arizona Fall League regular season is over. Surprise finished 16-16, two games back of the Peoria Javelinas for the West Division title. The Javelinas will take on Phoenix in the title game on Saturday.

AzFL Surprise (11-9 loss to the Peoria Saguaros on Wednesday)
Brandon Laird: 1 for 4, 1 2B, 1 BB, 1 K
Colin Curtis: 3 for 5, 1 R, 1 HR, 2 RBI, 1 K - finishes the season on a 14 for 37 (.378) with 4 doubles, a triple, and a homer

AzFL Surprise (7-4 win over Phoenix on Thursday)
Mike Dunn: 1 IP, 1 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 2 BB, 1 K, 1-0 GB/FB – 14 of 26 pitches were strikes (53.8%) … PitchFX had the fastball at 93.94-95

So that’s it for nightly DotF until next April. You’ll still get your winter ball updates every Sunday, but those won’t last much longer either.

    I just shed a small tear.

    Are you going to do a AzFL wrap-up post?

    The Arizona Fall League regular season is over. Surprise finished 16-16…

    Huh…I thought they’d be a little better than that.

    Frankly, this unexpected result is a little astonishing. Startling, even. I’m astounded and flabbergasted. Dazed and confused, even.

    This confounding bewilderment of a stupefying shock leaves me off-kilter and aghast. I am perplexed and taken aback. I did not see this coming. It’s a curveball out of leftfield.

      Heh.

      Caught you off guard did it?

        Yes. It stunned me. It was quite disconcerting.

            Nah, let’s not go overboard.

    My recommendation: Turn DotF into a nightly podcast where you read a few pages of Animal Farm to us all.

    It’ll be like a fireside chat. We can make hot cocoa and snuggle up in our blankets, listening to the dulcet baritone of Mike Axisa soothingly share with us one of the landmarks of 20th century dystopian English lit.

    The family that reads together… bleeds together.

      Snuggies, Keds, punch and an Axisa Animal Farm? Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy!

      Animal Farm is your favorite book… Animal Farm is Sarah Palin’s favorite book… And I’ve never seen you and Sarah Palin in the same place at the same time. Just sayin’.

        I can see Russia from my house.

        No, wait… that’s just Yonkers.

    Curtis… 1st ops, 2nd ba, 3rd hr
    Laird… 7th ops, 16th ba, 2nd hr
    Kennedy… 8th era, 1st so, 5th whip (starters)

    ^^^^ pretty good showing for the boys

    Colin Curtis should be our starting LF in 2010. Numbers don’t lie (terrible show, btw). Save the money we’d spend on Damon and get Lackey on a 6-year deal!

    I don’t really follow the DoTFs, not my thing, so it took me a long to to realize “Suprise” was referring to a team and not the type of win they achieved. After like 3-4 headlines saying “Suprise win” I was thinking, “hey, maybe its not so much of a surprise anymore….”. haha
