Hey Goya, you at this Louisville game? Both pitchers looking horrid after the first, we could be seeing quite a few runs. I've always liked Norris Hopper. He's already singled, stole a base, and scored.

GOYA

No, I'm home watching on MiLB. I've got partial season tix on Fridays but I go to the game on other nights every once in a while.

Right on, man. I'm up here in the booth right now. You should check out my site if you get bored: minor league baseball from a minor league writer. Go to examiner.com and search Louisville Bats. If you find it worthy, spread the word. Go Bats/Reds.

Norris Hopper at it again. RBI single to center by Hopper. Exciting play at the plate, Tatum has nice head first slide into home.

GOYA

Hopper drives in Tatum. 2-1 Bats

Tatum slides into the catcher at home head first. He may have hurt his glove hand.

Sutton with a 2-run HR.

4-1 Bats

LeCure having one of his better outings of the year tonight in Louisville. Bankston has been killing the ball lately, I wish he had a better glove for 3rd, but anytime someone bunts or a tough play is to be made on the hot corner, he gets exposed as a mediocre fielder at best at this stage in his career. Go to examiner.com and search 'Louisvillle Bats' for info on the team all season (shameless plug).

Considering his ERA was absurdly high entering tonight, that's not saying much. But I get your point.

Carolina tied in the 12th.

Ondrusek got a big K to end the 11th with the bases loaded.

Heisey leads off the 12th

How many were throwing that a MLB 1B would have caught? I don't know the answer, but errors shouldn't be the determining factor.

Funny thing is he only committed 10 all of last year. The other thing is how many errors did he commit getting to balls others wouldnt have? From what I remember reading about him, his range is GG quality.

Am I a bad person for being happy that DMac had an O-fer night? I really don't want to see him up with the big club again, as I see Stubbs, Heisey and even Hopper as better outfielders right now than him.

That's what I thought. I'd be interested to hear OBM or doug's take on this.

I made a comment about Cozart's errors a while back and someone sent me a PM saying the Five County Stadium (Carolina home park) infield was pretty rough. A lot of the minor league fields are like that. That's why I don't get too concerned about the errors. Cozart has great range and is viewed as a very good defensive SS.

GOYA
06-10-2009, 11:00 AM
They just rebuilt that field at Carolina. Is it still rough?

nemesis
06-10-2009, 11:08 AM
Who knows how well it's maintained or if it was done on the cheap. THey don't draw to many fans in the gates down there so maybe its just not that well maintained. Now in Dayton last year where he only committed 10 errors all year, that field is ML quality.

Unrelated but Dayton is 5th in all of the Minors in attendance per game. The four teams above then are all AAA clubs. Awesome job they do up here.
