Heathcott gets back in the swing of things in a loss

By

Hector Noesi is your Double-A Eastern League Pitcher of the Week while Zoilo Almonte, Luke Murton, and Ryan Flannery will participate in the Low-A South Atlantic League All Star Game. Corban Joseph and Jose Ramirez got hosed.

Here’s a roundup of the night’s action, bullet pointed because of the draft. Double-A Trenton had a scheduled day off.

    Yay for former first pick.

  2. pat says:

    Of course Cito Culver went hitless for the day.

    Douche.

  3. Reggie C. says:

    Nice job Slade. Arodys Vizcaino looks to have found his groove.

  4. Brad Toughy says:

    I went to the Scranton game tonight. Boring game pretty much sums it up. Yanks had a dozen hits, but only one or two were hit hard.

    On a night that Aroyds pitched against the Class A Yanks, Mike Dunn dominated the Triple-A Yanks to get a save. He was sitting 95-96 all night.

  5. Chris says:

    I wonder if Brackman gets promoted soon. His K:BB ratio and GB:FB ratio are good enough to warrant a promotion.

  6. Dirty Pena says:

    10/4 GB/FB and 4/1 K/BB for Brackman. Me like.

    How the hell is Venditte still in Tampa? I don’t even think that highly of him but he’s older than Joba. I think he’s dominated kids he could’ve fathered for long enough.

  7. Why even bother writing a DOTF, Mike?

    WE BUSTED HORRIBLY WITH OUR FIRST PICK, ALL IS LOST! WE’RE DOOMED!!!

    Never write another DOTF again. No point following the kids in the minors, they’re all busts drafted by morons.

  8. I can’t believe that Corban Joseph didn’t make the Sally League All-Star game too.

  9. Sad day in the Dominican Republic. Melvin with the blown save and loss. He works in mysterious ways.

    • Rick in Boston says:

      Is this a sign of the apocolypse? Or is this another form of Melvin giving back to those with unfortunately less ability?

  10. I wasn’t big on draft stuff last year? What is Slade’s cieling/likely production?

  11. Mike Ashmore says:

    Laird, Noesi, Romine, Phelps…Trenton’s worth watching, kids. Come on out.

    • Rick in Boston says:

      Are the Thunder having trouble drawing this year? That’s a shame – I used to work with Will Smith in Hagerstown back in ’03.

  12. rbizzler says:

    Whoa, Tim Norton sighting! 6 K’s in two innings is pretty sweet.

  13. bottom line says:

    ANy details on Norton’s velo these days? At 27, I would think he’s also promo candidate
