    These announcers are great. How are they only doing AAA baseball?

    Why is Corona still batting 2nd?

  • http://www.facebook.com/pages/Bring-Melvin-To-America/193013541601?ref=sgm Andy In Sunny Daytona

    Wow. A RF actually CATCHING a ball. Weird.

    Lots of room in here……ECHO….echo…..echo….HELLO???…..hello…hello.

  • JohnnyC

    Do you think the Gazoo helmets make it to MLB anytime soon?

  • pat

    Just scooped up a milb tv account. Yay workplace inactivity!

  • BklynJT

    Did Montero’s stance change since spring training? It seemed more upright in spring

  • pat

    Romulo if you ever figure out where to throw the ball he could be very very good.

    • pat

      pronoun fail.

    • rbizzler

      He has looked pretty string so far. I was impressed with his change in his short stint in the bigs and he seems to mix it in pretty nicely with his FB.

      I am curious to see how he fares against Alvarez the rest of this outing.

      • rbizzler

        string = strong

        Russo just doubled to lead off the 3rd.

  • rbizzler

    Teh Jesus grounded into a DP in his first AB to score a run.

    Huffman followed with a double and was then plated by a Gorecki single.

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

    Hopefully Nunez’s inevitable out will at least move Russo to third.

    /ducks

    • rbizzler

      You should have tried to put the reverse jinx on Winn last night.

    • pat

      Hahah, nice.

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

    You don’t reason on Jesus.

  • pat

    SIT DOWN JOSE

  • http://www.facebook.com/pages/Bring-Melvin-To-America/193013541601?ref=sgm Andy In Sunny Daytona

    JESUS!! Jose Tabata was meat.

  • http://theyankeeu.com Matt Imbrogno

    Of course the one time they’re on TV I’m at internship. Fuck you, Master’s Degree.

    • http://www.facebook.com/pages/Bring-Melvin-To-America/193013541601?ref=sgm Andy In Sunny Daytona

      Get your priorities straight, Matt.

  • rbizzler

    Jesus guns down Tabata trying to steal second. The release did seems to have some sort of a hitch but he hosed him regardless.

  • http://www.facebook.com/pages/Bring-Melvin-To-America/193013541601?ref=sgm Andy In Sunny Daytona

    How many times have you seen it? A player makes a great play in the field and then…..

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

      The odds must be like, one in a million!

      • Thomas

        So you’re saying there’s chance!

    • http://www.facebook.com/pages/Bring-Melvin-To-America/193013541601?ref=sgm Andy In Sunny Daytona

      walks.

    • pat

      Then works a walk? I’ll take it.

  • pat

    His change is filthy.

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

    I can’t believe Reegie Corona is on the 40-man roster.

    • pat

      Eh, who is he blocking? Nobody really.

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

        Just his presence on the 40-man insults me as a fan.

        • pat

          Hahaha, point taken.

        • Andy in Sunny Daytona

          Agreed. The fact he bats second drives me crazy. He’s a number 9 hitter all the way. No way he should be getting the second most at bats in AAA.

          • Billy

            That’s probably the biggest waste of a spot on the 40 man. He is terrible.

  • Andy in Sunny Daytona

    Nunez gets lucky A LOT.

  • http://twitter.com/rebexarama bexarama

    Take that Kratz!!!

    (I tuned in to see him strike out and he had a funny name so I just wanted to say that.)

  • V

    Wow, Montero CRUSHED that. A couple feet shy of an HR to dead center.

    • V

      (It was a double of the top of the fence).

  • Andy in Sunny Daytona

    WOW

  • pat

    WTF didn’t that hit the bushes?

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

    That was a bomb.

  • Andy in Sunny Daytona

    Nice play Jose.

  • Thomas

    Is Crotta really bad?

    • Andy in Sunny Daytona

      He wasn’t very good today.

  • pat

    I’d want to pitch around Russo too.

  • Andy in Sunny Daytona

    Warning track power, right Mike?

    • Thomas

      And the wind is blowing out according to Gameday.

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

    Nice try, Eduardo.

  • Andy in Sunny Daytona

    Someone get Romulo some of CC’s pants. He doesn’t look comfortable.

    And the commentators notes are wrong.

  • http://twitter.com/rebexarama bexarama

    Announcers just said Montero was having a good game and has a nice swing. But I thought he HAD to be demoted and his swing was long and awkward!

    • poster

      What’d he do this game?

      • pat

        Caught tabata trying to steal 2b. Walked and hit a double off the CF wall.

        • poster

          So 1 for 3?

  • poster

    Montero’s slow, isn’t he?

    • pat

      Slow, but not as slow as he’s made out to be. He’s not quite Molina-esque.

      • poster

        I was commenting on the last play. He was really hustling and the play wasn’t that close.

        • pat

          He smoked it to 3b, the ball got there in a hurry.

          • poster

            Perhaps it just seemed like he had more time because of the bobble.

  • pat

    Jesus didn’t lollygag that one.

    • http://mystiqueandaura.com Steve H

      Jesus didn’t lollyHanley-gag that one.

      FTFY

      • Thomas

        It was as fast as he could run. Of course, you wouldn’t know because you have never played in the played in the majors.

        • http://mystiqueandaura.com Steve H

          But I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night.

          • Thomas

            I also haven’t played in the majors either (yet; /raises eybrow). So now knowing about your stay last night, I must assume you know more than I do.

    6 Walks for Romulo…damn
