    He's not playing SS in the GCL?
    Go BLUE!!!

    Hamilton is playing SS for the GCL team. The reports I saw on Hamilton was that he had the skills to play SS but needed the reps to improve his actions there.

    Tzu-Kai Chiu, my main man, back on the bump after a year off. Ok, that makes two bobbleheads I am awaiting - Shea Snowden's and Tzu-Kai Chiu's. I am going to have a busy summer in 2014.

    Anyone doubting the international influence on baseball need only to take a look at the lineups between the GCL Reds/GCL Twins game today:

    Code:
    GCL Twins	Country
    Santana  	Dom. Rep.
    Bistagne	U.S.A.
    Arcia       	Venezuela
    Lin          	Taiwan
    Hejma     	Czech Rep.
    Rhodes    	Australia
    Kang       	S. Korea
    Arias       	Dom. Rep.
    Johnson   	U.S.A.
    Hunt       	U.S.A.
    Tonkin     	U.S.A.
    Alvarez    	Dom. Rep.
    
    GCL Reds	
    Hamilton	U.S.A.
    Rodriguez, Y	Venezuela
    Morrison	U.S.A.
    Duran      	Dom. Rep.
    Rodriguez, C	Dom. Rep.
    Rodriguez, H	Venezuela
    Cech       	Czech Rep.
    Doran      	U.S.A.
    Guerrero	Dom. Rep.
    Chiu        	Taiwan
    Henry      	Canada
    Pizziconi	Italy
    Corcino   	Dom. Rep.
    There are players representing nine different countries: Australia, Canada, Czech Republic, Dominican Republic, Italy, South Korea, Taiwan, United States and Venezuela.

    Of the 25 players who saw action, 18 of them are from outside the United States. The countries with the most players were the Dominican Republic and the U.S. with 7 apiece.


    Can you imagine the teaching and learning difficulties presented to the coaching staffs and players on these teams? Incredible.

    He threw the same runner out at 3rd base twice. I am pretty sure this was on the same play. I am equally certain that he was credited with both 2 assists and 2 putouts.

    Bats get 3 in the first. They should have 4 and still be batting but Edwin fell down approaching the plate and was tagged out. He appears to be OK.

    * Drew Stubbs walks.
    * Darnell McDonald singles on a ground ball to center fielder Brent Lillibridge. Drew Stubbs to 2nd.
    * With Drew Sutton batting, Drew Stubbs steals (26) 3rd base, . Darnell McDonald advances to 2nd, on throwing error by catcher Donny Lucy.
    * Drew Sutton reaches on fielding error by third baseman Wilson Betemit. Drew Stubbs scores.
    * Edwin Encarnacion hits a ground-rule double (1) on a fly ball to left-center field. Darnell McDonald scores. Drew Sutton to 3rd.
    * Kevin Barker strikes out on foul tip.
    * Chris Valaika lines out softly to first baseman Brandon Allen.
    * Luis Bolivar singles on a ground ball to left fielder Miguel Negron. Drew Sutton scores. Edwin Encarnacion out at home, left fielder Miguel Negron to catcher Donny Lucy to pitcher Wes Whisler.

    Wes Bankston hasn't played since last Friday.

    He still has an injured hand from being spiked on a pickoff attempt.

    Daryl Thompson was activated today and will work out of the pen for a while. Lehr was designated as temporarily inactive. Sweet say Lehr will not miss a start.

    Homer is confirmed as having a flight out of Charlotte tomorrow. He will not follow the team to Gwinnett.

    When does anyone propose that EE returns?

    My guess is Tuesday.
