    I’m going to the Scranton/Lehigh Valley game on Tuesday night. I’ll finally get to see Coca-Cola Park, 11 days after getting laid off from the job that was less than a mile away from the place.

    Hopefully it will be a fun experience.

    • Mark

      You will seeing a Ryan Howard rehab game, will probably be packed.

      • Pat D

        Oh, yay.

  • Brian S.

    Are Saxon Butler and Pedro Guerra legit prospects? Having great years so far.

    • Ralph

      Saxon Butler was just drafted this year.

    • tremont

      Saxon was a 30ish round pick. He’s most likely pulling a Neil Medchill on the NY Penn.

  • jack

    Someone teach Santana how to slide head first.

  • Brian S.

    I hope Taylor Dugas makes the Show and hits a home run so that Sterling will say “And Taylor drops a Dugas on ‘em!”

  • IE

    On the bright side, Gary Sanchez did throw out two would-be base stealers.

  • Will The Thrill

    Where is Bichette’s power gone this year? Definitely disappointing to see 1st rounders Heathcott, Culver, and Bichette underachieving.

    • Barry

      No reason to say that Heathcott is underachieving considering that a) he just started his season and b) he’s been slugging pretty nicely in that short amount of time.

  • J. Scott

    Wonder if Saxon has a brother named Anglo.

    I would love Ronnier Mustellier to get a shot to help the big club.. I feel hes gonna be a solid player that can really help.. Reminds me of a Jr Spivey type player, when Spivey was actually decent..
