I started another game thread as Goya was posting this one, so please ignore the other. We can carry on here.

What I posted was . . .

Starting pitchers for the early games:

Louisville--Carroll
Carolina--Villarreal
Dayton--Gerson

Dayton scored one in the first (on a double by Yorman), so that one's over.

I like this little kid more each day. He's in my top 5 now.

Jordan Wideman will be the backup catcher for Corky this weekend while Mesoraco is at the futures game.

Gerson got lit up for three hits in 6.1 IP. His ERA is now 0.75.

Torreyes: 2-for-3 HR (#2), two walks, two RBI

anyone that little with that much hitting ability needs a nickname. do we have a nickname for him yet? If not, I suggest El Cargabates (the Batboy). I think it works. He's about the size of a batboy, looks like a kid, and carries a big bat.

Should we start getting excited about Gerson? Anyone have a scouting report on him?

In 6 starts between Billings and Dayton:

36 IP
24 H
7 BB
28 K
3 ER
.75 ERA
.86 WHIP

I know it's Billings and low-A (and he's not young), but those are some pretty fine numbers. I would assume he's not overpowering as his K numbers have never been too high, but he seems to have something going on.

Bats lost 10-1

The 2 saving graces:

Mesoraco went 2 for 4

Bats pitchers didn't give up any walks. (Carroll, Lehr and Johnson)

10 earned runs, but no walks

Brandon Dailey (.460) is 2-3 with a 3B and the AZL Reds lead 4-2 in the fifth. Jordan Smith pitched the first two innings and gave up one unearned run.

No, he's the "paperboy" because he always delivers...

Sean Buckley has hit his second HR of the night to put Billings up 9-6 in the ninth. He's 3-4 and batting .321.

Brennan May looks like a nice pickup. His fourth HR helps put the AZL Reds ahead 7-2 after five.

James Allen struggles in the ninth, but not quite as catastrophically as Cordero. Billings hangs on, 9-8.

Alejandro Chacin - Barely 18 year old pitcher for the AZL Reds - 1ip, 3K tonight. On the season, 6.1ip, 1BB, 0ER, 15K.

No scouting report on him yet, but I have been trying. Hopefully I can get my hands on some information on this kid soon because what he is doing at his age is ridiculous.

Dayton has an intriguing roster right now, especially on the pitching side. Last time I checked, they had the top 3 strikeout pitchers in their league in smith/corcino/renken.

All the more impressive when you factor in that there are 16 teams in the MW league.

Corcino and Smith are up there in WHIP and ERA too.

How about "el Toro Nino"? The Baby Bull

That sounds awesome. I like it. But seriously how is he doing this? How does an 18 year old 130 pound second basemen even get a ball over the fence, let alone tear apart a league where kids his age, even top prospects, generally struggle? He's boggling my mind.

Take a look at what he did in the VSL last summer. He visited wholesale wreckage there, against mostly older competition. I'm sure he's heard he's too small forever, and I hope he keeps hearing it.

Not bad. He doesn't seem very bull like to me though. How about just Bebe (Babe)? :D

Bat speed and the ability to square the ball up very well. Torreyes, by all accounts, has very good bat speed. Bat speed is more important than raw strength and while raw strength can improve ones bat speed, it isn't the only factor in generating it.

En enspanol it would be El Torrito...which means the little bull.

You never know, Torreyes still might grow a few more inches.

If we're getting serious about this, and choosing from the nominations above, my vote would go to El Cargabates (the batboy).

The Baby Bull was Orlando Cepeda, whose father, Pedro, a famous player in Puerto Rico, was known as Perucho (The Bull).
