  1. I got to see the HV game at Lowell on Friday, Malm had two hits in that one as well, and also was hit in the head with a pitch but remained in the game. Obviously the 2 HR on Saturday seem to indicate that he is OK.

    My first chance to see Floethe, 89 on the fastball but kept the Spinners off balance (couldn't resist)in his 3 IP and looked very solid.

    Bryles made a great catch in a windy CF and his stance may rival BJ for width of the feet. Querecuto & Olivares are guys that I would put on watch lists, and Matt Rice looks very comfortable at the plate. Headed back up tonight for Parrot Head Night, temps in the 90's should make me feel right at (FL) home.

  2. Obvious "vacation-lag" I saw the game on Saturday and 2 HR on Sunday for Malm.

  3. There seems like there have been a lot bombs hit in that series against lowell. Was the wind blowing out or short field, or were guys actually just hitting the ball hard.

  4. On Saturday the wind was blowing strong, but across the field LF-RF, and one of the two total XBH that night was a wind-blown fly ball that should have been caught. Not sure of any wind influence yesterday when the HR were hit. I will ask around tonight if it was bad pitching or good hitting...

  5. Catching up on a ton of minor moves from the last few days, see the depth chart for all, it's updated. Here are a few:

    Matulia back to Montgomery, Beckham to temp inactive list retro to 7/9 (will be active again on Wed)

    Signed and assigned to DSL Rays: RHP Luis Guerrero and RHP Jose Franco

    David Kubiak from GCL to Princeton

    Stayton Thomas from GCL to Hudson Valley

    Isaac Gil assigned to GCL (draft pick)

    Stepan Havlicek activated by GCL

    You probably saw all of the Tampa and Durham moves.

  6. Patrick- 301 down the rf line, then angles out to over 350 over a span of about 30' so could have been a part of the HR.

    Second Renegade hit in the head in the series, Malm Fri and Reginatto tonight. He did not stay in the game as Jeff did, and this was a little scary. Walked off the field, so hopefully not too serious. Parrothead night in Lowell, but tough to call the promo food "Cheeseburgers in Paradise" since it is central MA.

  7. Both of Malm's HRs Sunday were no-doubters; would have been out anywhere
