  1. Ryan LaMarre is quickly pulling his his season out of the dumpster. After a horrendous start, LaMarre is now hitting .258/.314/.330 after hitting .333/.381/.462 in his last 10 games. LaMarre could become an extremely critical prospect for 2014. He had a complete season at AA in 2012 hitting .263/.356/.353 and may soon warrant a trip to AAA for more advanced work on his hitting in preparation for 2014.

  2. The Hajj! I enjoyed watching him pitch in Dayton. Looks like a younger version of one of my all time favorites: Sir Authur Rhodes.

  3. Corcino takes the mound today (about 15 minutes to start time) for the Bats. Let’s hope that he can start getting things back on track.
