I wouldn't have noticed it, but watching Fellhauer standing on the field right next to Andrew Means...there is no freaking way either of their heights are accurate in the roster listing. They've got Fellhauer at 5'11" and Means at 6'1". When they stand side-by-side, there's clearly more than 2 inches between them. My guess is that Fellhauer is actually 5'10", and Means is closer to 6'2".
Partch looked awesome early. Only gave up a bunt hit in the 3rd, faced the minimum number of batters until the 5th since Wideman threw out a guy at 2nd. Then they rocked him hard in the 5th.
Another thing you notice while watching the game in person...Rojas is one slick fielding dude. Like Doug has mentioned in the past, if he can hit, he's a legit prospect.
Oh, forgot to add Partch's pitch speeds. I'm not sure how accurate the Dayton gun is, but Partch was throwing his fastball consistently 91 or 92. Then his change-up or breaking ball (couldn't tell which, since I wasn't behind the plate), would come in at 81 or 82.

Some people like to compare Yonder Alonso to Pujols, but you could also say that Alonso was drafted in the 1st round out of UMiami while Pujols was a 12th round pick out of community college. The point is hopefully Fellhauer can be a similar player to what Heisey is now.

Anyone have any idea why he was a 7th rounder? He had good numbers at Cal State Fullerton. He doesnt have great base stealing numbers but from what I understand hes a very solid CF.
Is there some problem I'm missing?
