  1. Has Justin O'Connor started figuring things out? Great 1st start for Guerrieri.

  2. Way to go Gades! Nice comeback. We were surprised, though, that a pinch runner wasn't in for O'Connor, (perhaps Gannt, Dunn, Maile), since he's having hip issues. Also surprised to hear of an attempted steal of 3rd base with 2 outs. Taylor Guerrieri was teriffic. Rob Finnernan had a tough outing. Then Shay Crawford came in- inherited 3 men on base and none of them scored. Marcus Jensen finished the game, and the 'GADES won!

  3. The wave of high end prospects that might be hitting the bigs in about 4 years is looking pretty impressive. This will be perfect timing as we will probably be saying good bye to Evan, Zo, and Price around that time.

  4. Way to go 'Gades!! By the way Jake DePew was 2-3 with a SB and a walk. He does a great job of working with his pitchers. TG looked dominating, Crawford was impressive in a tough bases loaded situation. Looks like this team could be OK offensively!!
