    I believe Matt Fairel is pitching for Dayton.

    Fun fact for tonight:

    Bats catcher Craig Tatum has put up nice numbers over his last 10 games.

    .323/.581/.451 - 1.032 OPS

    Unfortunately, your aunt Laverne could steal on his arm.

    Interesting to hear this about his arm, GOYA, b/c the read on his defense has always been that he's pretty good.

    My Aunt Laverne is a 60 runner on the scouting scale and has a book on everybody's move to first.

    Maybe with Hernandez playing so much at 1B, and he and to a lesser extent, Hanigan showing a little fatugue, its time to give Tatum a cup of coffee until Votto or EdE return. He's on the 40 man roster and lord knows Castillo isn't the answer to anything. Tatum's hot and has a good defensive rep. Call him up for a couple weeks, get him 3 or 4 starts over that time frame and it may just work wonders for Hernandez and Hanigan (and maybe Tatum draws a little trade interest if he hits a bit).

    He has been a pretty good receiver but both he and Castillo have a very poor rate of throwing out runners. Castillo might be a little better but he's not as good of a receiver.

    Unfortunately, I don't have stats to back that up. Does anyone know of a free site that tracks defensive stats on catchers? The Baseball Cube doesn't have anything.

    Tatum has thrown out only 18% this year, but last year, he caught 38%.

    Smith gives up a run in the first. Mudcats down 1-0 as they come up.

    Carolina gives up a run on what sounds like a crazy play. A runner scored from 2nd on an infield groundout, Alonso to pitcher covering.

    That HR was good timing for Heisey. His batting average had dropped below the Cobb line. Now it's back to a respectable .367.
