Open Thread: World Series Game Two
Past Trade Review: Mark Wohlers

AzFL Phoenix Desert Dogs (15-1 loss to Peoria)
Brandon Laird, LF: 0 for 3, 1 HBP
Jose Pirela, DH: 1 for 3
Manny Banuelos: 3 IP, 7 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 1 BB, 4 K, 4-1 GB/FB – 40 of 64 pitches were strikes (62.5%) … opponents are hitting .355 off him … the Arizona Fall League isn’t kind to pitchers, no it isn’t kind at all

    It’s encouraging to see the K/BB numbers this time out as well as last time.

        YOu can’t live and die with numbers in an extremely hitter-friendly instructional league. It’s not like he’s trying to put up numbers to impress the org, he’s probably got instructions he’s following about things to work on.

        • Andrew Brotherton

          Yeah I’m sure they gave him a pitch, or two to work on during the summer. I wouldn’t worry about results at all.

    What is it about the AFL that makes it a hitters’ league?

    • pat

      Warm air, small parks and tired pitchers?

  • China Joe

    What is it with lefty control pitchers getting knocked around these days?

    Hopefully Manny Banuelos turns out to be Cliff Lee’s non-union Mexican equivalent.

  • Brian in NH

    not too worried about the ManBan. After AzFL he goes home, maybe rests a little, gets ready for Spring then we see him light it up in AA
