    A big RH power bat to bat 5th.
    If you can't be a good example... then you'll just have to be a horrible warning...

    Nothing tastes as good as being fit feels...

    Needs better plate discipline. I expect AAA to be a bit of a learning curve for him. The power is absolutely legit though, just think he still has a ways to go before he can be a MLB caliber hitter.

    Bats have 12 hits and 3 errors through 4 innings

    They're up 8-1

    Your right, but he has a very good hit tool.

    A good hit tool with great power and about 1 or 2 years ahead of most prospects, gives me alot of optimism.

    A stagnated improvement in plate discipline gives me a cause for concern.

    great rip by Hamilton... First time watching him, and if the ball gets past the OF'r, you almost EXPECT an inside-the-park HR...

    that's crazy.

    You are currently watching a past game from July 23rd, just so we aren't confusing anyone here. Tonight's game is in a rain delay currently.

    Yeah. It's an older game (rain delayed replay of earlier game) but still fun to watch.

    I had no idea that Magic Johnson was an investor in the Dragons' franchise. Cool.

    Hamilton almost got out of that rundown. He's lightning fast. Torreyes' has got some wheels too. Both are VERY fast.

    Bruce/Votto neck and neck MVP race (neither takes it)
    Bailey CYA winner
    Hamilton ROY & GG

    Dayton is scheduled to get back underway at 9:15 if some of you want to pick up the game online.

    Bill Rhinehart is making his first start tonight for Carolina. Playing RF, he's 2-3 with a 2B and 2 RBIs.

    Mudcats lead 5-2 after six. Looks like they'll have to play from behind again, if you know what I mean.

    Freeman and Hamulack got it done this time for Carolina, 6-2. James Avery had another solid start.

    Felix Perez had a good first game for Louisville, 2-4. Nice to see Sappelt starting to roll again, 3-5. Hermida 3-4. Louisville wins 8-3.
