We went to the Dragons game last night. Yikes. I know, they are kids, it's low A, it's very early in the season. But yikes.
I have never seen such hacking in my life. To a man, they would swing at anything from their helmets to their shoe tops. And most of them were swinging from their front foot. We sat two rows behind the dugout and I never saw Powell say a word to anyone after an AB.
The left side of the infield - Reininger at 3rd and Janish at SS - can pick it. Then there is the problem of getting it to first. It was like watching Felipe and EdE with their struggles to make a throw.
Cueto started the game. He thows some heat - but the problem is he just throws. No movement on any pitches. He got shelled.
Jay Bruce left me thinking "this is a first round pick??" He's only 19, I know. But he never got a jump on a ball to right. Good or bad. He would stand there for a second to see where the ball was going and then take off for it. No instinct at all.
Of course a game at 5/3 is always fun. But it looks like it's going to be a long season for Dragon fans.
