Keep in mind Bruce is going against Gio Gonzalez, one of the top pitchers in all of AA. He is 2nd in the entire minors in Ks this year. Not an easy task for your first game.
Sounds like Bruce and Rosales could stand a bit less adrenaline right now.
I suspect Wood will be back on the DL soon. His command has been awfull outside 1 start.
Billings is now underway. Brandon Waring is 1-for-1 with his first career pro double.
Welcome to AA Adam and Jay, collective 0-8, 6ks. Tough way to start. Drive 300+ miles hop out of the car and go play. Give'm a day or two to get settled and they'll come around.

Billings is winning 7-4 after 6. Brandon Waring is 1-for-2 with a double and two walks.
Wow, the Great Falls pitcher vs. Billings had four wild pitches in the 5th inning and then two more in the 6th.
Bleak night on the farm.
You must be very happy
The lowest acceptable payroll amount for ownership to show they are not greedy pigs is 15 million more than they are currently paying. No matter what that currently is.

-VSL Reds were PPD
nice job Rhoden, saw him pitch in College WS, his stuff moves all over the place. Keeps the ball down
No one seems to be excited at the great pro debut of third-round pick Neftali Soto. Or Tzu-Kai Chiu, for that matter.
(Icehole, you beat me to the Rhoden mention.)
