    Mike, what do you see Pirela’s ceiling as? A Luis Castillo-type?

  • Roger

    no! 6 earned runs for Jairo. This guy is supposed to be our best pitching prospect.

    • http://mystiqueandaura.com/ JMK the Overshare’s Mystique and Aura

      No he isn’t.

    • pat

      Ummm yeah, I’m gonna go ahead and ask you to move your desk into the basement.

    All five levels lost tonight?! Confidence level: -10

    Palabrakemper is going to be a freakin’ star. Best pitcher we have in Trenton.

        Lockbox

  • Abu

    Yah

  • Johnny O

    Mike – whats up with Slade Heathcott? He’s in EST, anything about his performance there? Any estimates on when he’ll show up in Charleston?

  • DSFC

    Wow, in retrospect that Sheffield to the Tigers deal really sucked. Oh well…..looked good at the time. Takeaway – never rely on a guy named Humberto

  • kenthadley

    If Eduardo Nunez doesn’t have the glove for ss, is he a possibility for CF? has arm, speed, and appears to have a bat….

    • Bill

      Yea he has enough athleticism to make that move. Although with Granderson and Gardner I can’t see the team moving him to CF. They’ll keep him at SS and keep him in AAA until his defense improves enough.

    Please please keep it up DeAngelo. I love this kid and what I saw from him at Staten Island.

    I wouldn’t be shocked if Zoilo Almonte started hitting well soon as well.
