Just Louisville and Carolina playing today. Carolina is underway and already down 2-0 due to Mike Stanton's 3rd HR in the last 10 innings played. He may be the only guy in the minor leagues with more power than Juan Francisco and its showing up big time. Yonder Alonso is 1-1 and playing at 1B today. Curtis Partch is on the mound for Carolina.

Mike Stanton just went deep again. That is 4 HR's in the last 12 innings against the Mudcats for him.

Jacksonville is up 7-0 in the 3rd. They have scored 5 in the 3rd and haven't made an out yet.

The way Mike Stanton is hitting right now reminds me of Adam Dunn's 2001 season.

The way the system is losing games by the bunches--frankly, it's disheartening--lists like that are about all we have to hang our caps on. To me, the most promising item on there is Mesoraco's strikeout rate. Combined with his slugging, that's impressive. In fact, at this premature point, I'd say that Mesoraco is the leader for Organizational Player of the Year.

Valiquette and Klinker are the two arms worth talking about right now in Carolina. Valiquette has to be creating conversation upstairs.

That's more like it. 9 guys with a chance at a major league role at some point. Too baad there is no DH. Then Dorn could play and make it an even 10.

Perfect 1st with 2 K for Wood.

The downside is that he allowed another long flyball out.

Wood hit 94 MPH on the stadium gun in the first inning. Not sure if the gun has been juiced because of Chapman or not, but it has never been known as a hot gun.

The stands are absolutely empty in Louisville. Maybe a few hundred people. Maybe.

Travis Wood seems absolutely locked in right now. Not sure Wilkin Castillo has had to move his target to catch more than 2 pitches so far tonight.

I wonder if sitting on the bench has caused the cold start for Francisco. 0 for 6 nights are always rough, especially when your season line is .133/.167/.289. Granted this is only 48 PAs, but still not a good start for 'Cisco.

GOYA
04-27-2010, 11:57 AM
It seems to me that Cisco's swing has gotten longer. But at this point, it's hard for me to point at one guy as a problem. If you look at Francisco, you also have to look at Balentien and Frazier. And there are several guys just a tad better than those guys that are still performing poorly. But there are signs of life. There was some fight in the Bats last night.
