OBM is he done for the night? I am not listening, just following the box score tonight, but that is always an inning or so behind.

They have some surprisingly good lesser known pitching in the minors. I hope they keep it up, it could help in trades if they stay in this thing.

Great game. Does anyone have a scouting report from this game? FB velocity, delivery assessment and number of different type of pitches used would be interesting. If he is matching his college scouting report of 93-94 FB velocity with a nice slider - he could move up the ladder quickly.

Noochie Varner hits one to the wall, the outfielder lets it hit off his glove. Votto was tagging up, and could only reach third base. Bases are loaded for the Lookouts with no outs.

Those are great numbers, and that is what many of us expected out of Zach Ward. I loved the pick of Ward in the third round last year and I'm starting to like it even more now. Ward is a guy who could move through the system quickly if he can stay healthy and continue to produce. I would bump him to Sarasota soon if he continues to pitch well.

I think he can develop into a solid John Lackey type of pitcher.

With the GS, Machado tripled his season RBI total from two to six.

Maybe we can trade him to Milwaukee for Ben Sheets? :evil:

Nope, I was listening to the game and the announcer was also pretty shocked at seening the ball go over the wall.

LOL! no, the call by the radio guy was awesome....he was absolutely shocked. It really made for a great call because it was something that you would have never expected. One of the better calls of a home run I have ever heard.
