    Rough night for starting pitchers throughout the organization.

  2. NeilT says:

    Some pretty ugly pitching lines all over tonight. I thought Marshall’s was bad, then I saw Mitchell’s – but it’s pretty impressive to give up 10 runs, only five of which were earned. Way to go A-ball defense.

    Is Slade quietly coming around now? He was my vote for rookie watch (ahead of Sanchez).

  3. YankeeGrunt says:

    Cave has been very impressive, considering he’s a HS draftee with almost no reps in short season (EXST excepted). IIRC he has been described as possessing average power, couple that with the contact tool and speed and he could be dynamite. The K rate needs to come down but otherwise the start has been as good as we can hope.

  4. Pseudoyanks says:

    With Bichette and Culver struggling in Charleston, nobody is talking about how Yeicok has gone soft.

  5. Gary Sanchez says:

    When am I getting promoted. I need to give AA a try.

  6. Buddy says:

    Don’t be so down on urself…. i chuckled.

  7. vicki says:

    saying now, loud and proud. i’m a brennan boesch fan. memorize.

  8. Wayne says:

    It would appear that upcoming draft will Have better starting pitching available than position players! Word to the wise! we should be drafting the strength of the draft which is college starting pitching and then high school starting pitching

    • JohnC says:

      Word to the wiser. You take the best player available regardless of position when your turn comes up, especially in the early rounds.

    Nik Laloosh…
