Down on the Farm: AFL Update

I don't think I've updated the AFL for a few days so let's take a look at the last 3 games:

10/24/2012  Scottsdale Scorpions edged the Mesa Solar Sox 4-3:

Gary Brown(LF)- 0 for 3, BB, CS(3).  BA= .258.
Joe Panik(SS)- 0 for 3, BB.  BA= .250.
Chris Dominguez(DH)- 1 for 3, HR(2), BB.  BA= .316.

Gary Brown still getting CS'd a lot.

10/25/2012  Scottsdale Scorpions defeated the Surprise Saguaros 6-3:

Joe Panik(SS)- 1 for 2, 2 BB, SB)(3).  BA= .265.
Dan Runzler(LHP)- 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 3 K's. ERA= 0.00.
Heath Hembree(RHP)- 1 IP, 1 H, 1 R, 1 BB, 0 K's.  ERA= 1.80.

Runzler now has 7 K's against 0 BB's in 5 IP in the AFL.  That backs up a K/BB of 34/15 in AAA this year.  Hopefully he's turned a corner in his control struggles.

10/26/2012  Mesa Solar Sox beat the Scottsdale Scorpions 8-4:

Gary Brown(CF)- 1 for 4, BB.  BA= .257.
Ricky Oropesa(1B)- 0 for 3, BB.  BA= .240.
Chris Gloor(LHP)- 5 IP, 4 H, 1 R, 2 BB, 3 K's.  ERA= 2.65.
Jacob Dunnington(RHP)- 1.1 IP, 2 H, 2 R, 2 BB, 2 K's.  ERA= 3.38.

Gloor has had a strong AFL working as a starter with 14 K's against 5 BB's in 17 IP.  I would expect to see him in Fresno in 2013 with the possibility of an emergency callup if needed for either a starting or long relief role.

Be sure to check out a good article on about Giants Scouting Director John Barr and his long relationship with Buster Posey from way back before Barr started working for the Giants.  Also some discussion of how the Giants scouted and signed Brandon Crawford.

Another terrific article on CSN Bay Area about Giants Bullpen Coach Mark Gardner and his relationship with Rags and the Giants pitchers.

Last but not at all least, my friend ogc is on fire over on his website with his World Series game previews.  Today's was especially good with data about how pitchers fare with various umpires.  Great stuff.  Check it out!

Live Blog of tonight's game later.

Go Giants!
