    Trenton game two was a win not a loss.

  2. dkidd says:

    what are vidal nuno’s prospects?

    great name

    • JohnnyC says:

      Asked Josh Norris and Mike Ashmore about Nuno. Norris thinks he’s strictly an organizational guy. Ashmore thinks he’s getting interesting, on the cusp of being a prospect. Both agree his pure stuff is not major league though. Will be successful if his command keeps improving and the fact that he’s left-handed.

      • hornblower says:

        I saw him pitch in Fla. He looks like he would be a good lefty specialist. He’s from Kansas for what that’s worth.

      • Mike Ashmore says:

        I wouldn’t quite go as far as to say he’s on the cusp of being a prospect, but he is worth keeping an eye on right now…

    • pat says:

      24 year old present day Jamie Moyer

    • Brian S. says:

      You know.

  3. Joe says:

    hey mike,
    Better prospect Buxton or Soler?

  4. pat says:

    Mariel Checo must be doing something right. Obviously the walks are there, but 34k in 26 innings is very good. He was inauspiciously drafted in the 41st round and transitioned almost immediately to the bullpen which is not something you normally see. In high school he was 6’3″ 190 with a loose arm, terrible mechanics and a potentially plus but raw curve ball. I’m wondering if he tightened up that curve a little bit and has seen a few more mph on the fastball coming out of the pen. He could be pretty intriguing down the line.

  5. Brian S. says:

    I liked Mason Williams better when he had a wOBA in the upper .300′s.

  6. Cano fan #1 says:

    Let’s put zoilo almonte in the RF on 2014.

    Who is with me?

  7. Joe says:

    I just read:
    Red Sox Close To Signing Tzu-Wei Lin

    Thought he was going to be a Yankee. Seem to be missing out on some top International talent this year so far.
    These guys are young and raw but it is disappointing that they are not bringing in any big name guys this year….yet that is
