Game 56: Multiple Runs?
  • CountryClub

    I believe Norris tweeted this morning that he was told that Austin is sick.

  • W.B. Mason Williams

    Any projection on Custodio or Angelini? Can’t remember where they ranked for our prospects. Let’s hope one of them hits AA by next year.

    • Jacob the OG

      Plenty of stuff on angelini if you search it in the search bar on the side, I believe Mike has been calling Custodio a sleeper all season.

    • JW

      Angelini is going to be 25 later this year. Really old for A ball. Don’t get your hopes up.

      • Laz

        Granted, it is because of injuries, not taking time to adjust. I still would like to see what he can do at AA before I believe he will have a huge impact.

        • Tremont

          It’s pretty doubtful that he ever reaches the majors, let alone has a huge impact.

          • Laz

            You can say that about every prospect not in the top 50 in mlb.

            • Jeety

              Angelini was written about a lot 5 years ago, he failed miserably, a 25 year old should hit in A ball, I doubt he ever makes it to AAA.

              • mjw

                Angelini was highly regarded out of high school, and missed alot of development time over the years due to injuries. He could be a late bloomer, we could use a good ss prospect.

                • Cool Lester Smooth

                  And the rest of the time he was just completely incapable of offensive production against people his own age.

                • qwerty

                  I can’t wait to see what Angelini has got when they officially call him up when he’s 29.

              • Electric Nunez ll

                I bet you he does.

  • Jobas fat stache

    Andolini has no future in baseball. However, he was fantastic in the Godfather.

  • gageagainstthemachine

    I assume the line about Campos going 4 innings in 3 of his last 5 games is not a negative, but rather a positive on about reaching his limit on innings as he comes back from that long year of elbow recovery, right?
