  1. Very nice week for Kendry Flores and Joan Gregorio. Still waiting for a breakout performance from the Richmond crew, but the majority of them seem to be keeping runs off the board, which is really the end goal anyway.

  2. Ysla is a lefty malo. Gonna be a bit wild til he gets it. Up to 94, Gints will be patient.

    How about Steven Okert? He hasn't really stood out in his minor league career, this could be a good bit of traction coming for him.

    Flores and Gregorio are doing the SJ pitching rep proud. Their college 1/2 round counterparts need to get to stepping. Nice for Ragira to hit one, he's been struggling with contact.

    1. That SJ club looks like it might need some offensive reinforcements if it wants to contend. Even Mac isn't hitting yet! Problem is, there doesn't seem to be a lot help down in Augusta. That's a very raw team, especially at the batter's box.

  3. In the future, I will be able to say, I attended a 2014 game Joan started in Cucamonga, and knew he was going to be good.

  4. It's been a crazy season all over for the Giants, Sandoval got a ton of walks, AnVil, Brown too, others, seems like a lot of hitters suddenly got religion on walks or something.
