  1. I heard that too.

    I see that Nick Travieso is listed in the starting rotation for the AZL Reds. He doesn’t have any stats yet. I hope it’s just my perception and not reality, any time I read a quote from him or watch an interview he seems like the kid that made fart sounds in the back of the school bus and stuffed freshmen in to lockers he senior year. He has a lot of maturing to do. I remember being embarrassed by his interview during the draft.

  2. I also feel bad for the player of the day. These may be his last games as a professional. After 5 years in rookie ball and at the age 22 his numbers are still not good. The only thing worth note is his .270 BA. But it looks like the only way he gets on base is by slapping a single, which only happens 27% of the time.

    In 118 PAs he’s got 5 BBs. Not good. Only 9 times has he hit for extra bases including 1 home run (last night). But he only strikes out 1 time in 6 PAs. That’s not bad. Since he’s a slap hitter, he must have a lot of stolen bases. Ummm, hmm, 16 attempts in 5 years, only 9 successful. His stats are all pretty similar throughout all 5 years. Actually, I’m not sure how he’s been able to survive 5 seasons based solely on his stats.

  3. Devin Mesoraco is 2/7 with 1 walk, 2 strikeouts, and 1 double. Could be better, could be worse. Hopefully he’ll enjoy the remainder of his week or so of playing in AAA.

  4. Wow, AA pitching hasn’t phased Hamilton. If he had the requisit 2.7 PA/game, within the league he would rank 1st in OBP, 3rd in AVG & 4th in OPS.
