Good.

Carolina is winning 1-0 in the third inning on a Jake Kahaulelio solo HR. Thompson: 2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K.

Kahaulelio drives in another run with a RBI single. 2-0 Carolina after 2 1/2 innings. Alonso is 0-for-2.

I'm guessing Maloney's short outing last time was to go easy on the blister. I hope he's fully healed, but those things can linger all year.

But if he goes six, and trikes out 6+ AND gets a bunch of groundballs in the process, Homer better be staking out a comfy seat in the bullpen.

I think the method for dealin with blisters is build up the callous by pushing it to a point then back off let he heal then redo it.

Glad Thompson is still going strong. Guess that scare last week, when he was temporarily removed from the roster for "shoulder fatigue", was a false alarm. He's been gangbusters.

And Kahaulelio has been on quite a tear, which is good except that he's so dang hard to spell.

Now 4-3 Tennessee in the ninth. It's staggering how many games the Carolina bullpen has blown-up.

Mudcats lose 4-3. Loss goes to Jerry Gil, who has actually been pitching a lot better lately. Today, though, he faced five batters and retired only one of them. He walked three of them.

Interesting stat from that game. Thompson threw 85 pitches, and 23 of them were balls. Gil threw 22 pitches, and 16 were balls.

Guacarock
05-11-2010, 03:31 PM
If you analyze the stats, the bullpens at Carolina and Louisville bear responsibility for a lot of the losing by both teams. How quickly what was once perceived as an organizational strength has turned into a glaring weakness up and down the system.

Gil has been fairly reliable at Carolina, but not today. Watson and Smith are another story, especially Watson. It wasn't that long ago he was considered a promising prospect. Now he seems more like a prime suspect.

Absolutely. Klinker and Cochran have been more deserving of wins than the bullpen has permitted. Today was another prime example of a good start being wasted.

My gamecast is not caught up for the Bats, but it looks like based upon the Box Score that Maloney is out after 4 easy IP. The Reds must have him on a pitch count related to that blister.

That's a lot of ground to travel in a year. Hopefully by then we'll be getting some bullpen depth from Burton and maybe even Bray. But if Joseph can do it, more power to him. I liked that pick last year and am liking it more all the time.

From the DDN:


DAYTON — Good news doesn’t often come in the middle of the night, unless you’re a minor-league baseball player.

So when Tommy Nurre — the newest member of the Dayton Dragons — found out just after midnight on Tuesday, May 11, that he’d been promoted, he of course wanted to share the news with his parents, Tom and Karen.

“I told (my mom) I was going home,” said Nurre, a former Miami University standout and graduate of St. Xavier High School. “Her first reaction was, ‘Oh, you got released.’ When I told her I was going to Dayton she was excited, woke my dad up and she made calls to the rest of my family.”

Is Luis Terrero our Ryan Ludwick?

Once upon a time he was the #1 prospect in the Arizona Diamondbacks organization in either 2001 or 2002. There was a belief he could be a 5 tool, 30/30 guy in the majors, but his strike zone judgement did not improve as he got older and his power never developed like they thought it would.

Really not a bad guy to have in AAA team though
