Patton making triple-A debut, ranked as one of the Orioles' top-10 prospects. Too bad Norris Hopper isn't impressed, he got a leadoff walk.

ASU's offense not letting us see too much of Leake. They are about to blow this open....4-0 bottom of 3....with the bases juiced and no outs.

BatsExaminer
06-16-2009, 08:24 PM
Norfolk scored a run on Louisville (3-1) with a sac fly, but you should have seen Drew Stubbs unleash a cannon throw home in an attempt to get the runner. Would have scored easily on most arms, Stubbs got it all the way in quickly, just a little bit to the right of the plate. Just put out an article on Wes Bankston, go to examiner.com and search 'Louisville Bats.' Shameless plug....

Michael Griffin has quietly put up a 6 game hitting streak. He's hitting .290 over his last 10 games.

Sutton with a throwing error. That's 66 errors this season for the Bats through 64 games.

Mario, I didn't have the ASU game on my ESPN here either. It was a blank black screen. ESPN2 has poker on it. I switched to a non-digital cable TV, and I've got the ASU game now. Not sure if that helps you or not.

He can only be sent down with his permission.

Understood but I assume they really don't care at this point if they have his permission or not. I'm sure they expect he'll give it a go since no one else seems to want him. He could gamble that the contract is the reason they wouldn't have picked him up but at this point that's a fair sized gamble.

I'm sure they do care, as they can't send him down without his permission.

THey would be left with releasing him (but still owing his salary) and paying him to pitch elsewhere, or pitching him.

What gamble? At worse he'll pitch in someone else's minor league system, and at best he'll pitch in the majors.

I'm just saying if they put him through waivers that says something about their current feelings about him and that they have some reason for placing him on those waivers. No one claimed him so he has to question whether he will get another opportunity or not. I suspect someone will give him a minor league offer but if that's the case why not just accept a trip to Louisville and try to work on getting back to pitching like he did quite a bit last year and honor his contract? He's not helping us currently or much at all thus far so something needs to be done.

He definitely can but the main reason he's with Norfolk instead of helping the Orioles right now is because half the time he doesn't know where the ball's going at that high speed. Great arm but a little wild. :eek:

Too much money tied up in Taveras. I don't think the Reds are going to willing to eat it.
