Chattanooga scored two runs in the 9th to tie the game at four but Viola allowed a run in the 9th to lose 5-4. Viola had been pitching better his last three games. RH hitters are crushing him.

Strait: 2-for-5 triple
Valaika: 2-for-3 double, walk (his walk rate is really improving in AA)
Henry: 1-for-3 double
Dorn: 2-for-2 double

Bust.

The difference in calling him a bust and say Stubbs is track record and age. Though Stubbs has been getting on base a lot the last week or so. His numbers don't scream promotion to AA, and that puts him behind any normal schedule for someone his age and draft position.

dougdirt
05-25-2008, 07:00 PM
Calling Stubbs a bust is just like those calling Mesoraco a bust after 7 games this year.... way to premature. Which was the point that was trying to be made.

Apples and oranges. There is no case for calling Mesoraco a bust. He's a HS pick and it's way to soon. Stubbs was/is older and SHOULD have advanced better than he has. Mesoraco is 19 and in A ball, could be 20 in high A next year. Stubbs will be 24 in AA, likely 25 in AAA and looks to be a 4th OF right now. He is easier to project at this point than Mesoraco. DM needs time before he can be evaluated.

I guess we shall see if Bruce's lack of walks translates to more walk in the Majors.

I think when he isn't hitting well, he will be a major liability.

Though, compared to Patterson the awfull, that would probably seem like a oasis.

That really speaks to Patterson. Dusty's manlove for him is disturbing.
