    Adams just crushing it.

  2. JobaWockeeZ says:

    I hope it isn’t anything injury related regarding Montero.

  3. Jeety says:

    David Winfree, looks like he’s decent. Any word on his skill set? Mike?

  4. A.D. says:

    Hall move up if/when Noesi or Warren get moved up? Then Turley or similar can move into A.

  5. matt damon wayans says:

    Scranton hit up the Ray’s best pitching prospect as well.

  6. Jake H says:

    David Adams just keeps on hitting.

  7. Drew says:

    15 of his 21 pitches were strikes

    I really wish he would start doing that when he gets called up.

  8. CapitalT says:

    Whatever happened to Humberto Sanchez (guy they got in the Sheffield to Det trade)?

  9. Drew says:

    Time to take Laird and his Grampa seriously? Killed it in 08, bit of an off year last year. Early this year he’s looking great again. What do you think about him Mike? Getting to see his gun in ST kind of makes me a believer that if he can hit he’ll find a spot in the OF.

  10. chriskeo says:

    Maybe yesterday Montero was benched because of not hustling, and today was a scheduled off-day. Just a pure speculation guess.

  11. Anthony says:

    It was lack of effort,sometimes you hear how great you are and your the next coming of who ever and you don’t give it your all.Sometimes you have to be knocked down a peg to realize that everyone and i mean everyone is replaceable.

  12. Jon G says:

    What are our best LF options at AAA (or AA for that matter). It’s just brutal to watch Thames play OF. Winn’s not exactly a glowing alternative.

    How long till Colin Curtis comes back and what are the chances he gets a shot..? Who else?

  13. Just gonna put my obligatory DeAngel fangirl comment here. As always hoping he keeps it up :)
