    Matt – I love your DOTF reports. Thanks for doing these again this year!

    Think Dumatrait could get a big league shot before Bailey? His minor league career numbers are looking pretty nice.

    Was Tyler Pelland part of that deal, too, or how was he acquired?

    I believe that Scott Williamson was traded for Phil Dumatrait, a player-to-be-named, and cash. Pelland was the PTBNL, because he had not been signed for a full year yet at the time of the trade. (For one year after their initial pro signing, a team cannot trade that player.)

    I’ve followed Pelland’s pro career very closely, as he went to my high school. Huge event for a Vermonter to be drafted. Short, hard-throwing lefthander. Unearned runs are a big issue for him, as well as poor control. Hopefully he’ll put something together this year, having been re-assigned to Chattanooga.

    Oh, and ditto on the praise for Matt and DOTF. I like the addition of the guys’ original draft position.

    umm you totally missed the fact that Sarasota played a double header yesterday. They lost their first game of the year 2-1. Johnny Cueto somewhat struggled going 4.2 ip, 7h, 2er, 2bb and 4k.
    Jay Bruce went 1-3 and extended his hitting streak to 6 games. Michael Griffin also extended his hitting streak to 6 games.
