  1. For the Hot Rods, Guevara left the game with the shoulder again. It's been bothering him for some time. He left the 6/1 game during his first AB after fouling off a pitch. Must not be too bad because he gets right back in the lineup, but if it's bad enough that he keeps having to leave games, something is wrong. Might see him put on the DL this time.

  2. Princeton roster was posted today. No details though.

  3. Wrigley leading the league in 2B and he has less then 25 games then everyone. but yet not a top 30?

  4. Two Stone Crabs were supsended for the fight/incident/bat attack in Palm Beach on Saturday. Alex Colome and Mark Thomas were both been suspended for three games. They began serving on Tuesday and will be eligible to play after the All-Star break on Monday.

  5. @ Matt,

    THe doubles and K rate (~17%) are nice, but has only 3 HR's and only 3(!) walks in 49 games. He's shown that he can hit, but outside of last year, not that he can hit for power, and he has never really showed the ability to draw walks. Putting up a sub-.300 OBP in AA does not bode well for major league production.

    walks are for pussies who are scared to take a hack! who plays baseball to walk?

  7. OBP is an old stats its all about OPS now

  8. Walks are free transportation, as good as a single. Walks can be big in a game.
