AFL Report: 10/22/2012 and 10/23/2012

10/22/2012  Phoenix Desert Dogs beat the Scottsdale Scorpions 5-1:

Gary Brown(LF)- 1 for 3, BB, CS(2).  BA= .286.
Joe Panik(SS)- 2 for 4.  BA= .276.
Jacob Dunnington(RHP)- 1 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K.  ERA= 0.00.

10/23/2012  Peoria Javalinas defeated the Scottsdale Scorpions 7-2:

Ricky Oropesa(1B)- 2 for 5.  BA= .273.
Dan Runzler(LHP)- 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 0 K.  ERA= 0.00.

BTW, it seems that kid pitcher from Japan will be subject to the international bonus cap rules.  Apparently Texas has the most money left to spend.  Caveat:  The penalty for going over cap is a dollar for dollar penalty and a $250 K cap for next year so if a team really wants him, it's not much of a deterrent to go over cap.  Kid has reportedly talked to the Dodgers, Rangers and BoSox and has said he will sign with one of those 3 teams.  I'll guess Dodgers, but maybe he'll want to join Darvish in the Rangers organization.


  1. Nice to see Brown and Panik hitting against good pitching. Encouraged by Runzler. How is Hembree doing?


    1. Doing good..4IP 4H 0R 0BB 8K 1 for 1 in Saves

      In fact, between Dunnington, Runzler and Hembree they have 11 IP with 0R and 18K with 0BB..


    2. They are going to have some good arms next year in Fresno from those who don't make the big team roster or get traded in the offseason - Surkamp, Heston, Kickham, Dunnington, Runzler, Bochy Jr. and Hembree.

  2. Baseball America has the Giants draft report card on their website. GO GIANTS!

      Some nice sleepers. I am pleased with the positive words for Mac and Agosta, as well as the speed merchants Johnson, Gardeck, Encinosa and especially lefty Okert.

  3. Raiby Barias signs, nice MI prospect out of the DPL.
