  1. DePaula's season stats: 1G, 3IP, 1S , 1H, 1BB. 3SO.

    Ok, just what Dr B said above, with the Ks ad the Save credited. Nice first game of the season. What took him so long to get started?

    1. I assume he either had a minor injury or was working on something specific in extended spring training.

  2. Minor Note - Mitch Delfino's BA should read .318, not .218.

    Thanks for the updates, as always Doc! Really enjoying what Angel V is doing, disappointed that Susac has a concussion and is already sidelined so early in the season.. I really enjoy following that kid, I've absolutely loved his personal and professional progression.

  3. Doc, I hope your forum is not going to start going with negative riders coming on and making their trash statements.

    1. Thanks, Richard. I appreciate you reading regularly and your comments. If somebody has a comment about where certain prospects need to improve or areas where the organization might look to upgrade in the draft or international signings and it is based on solid analysis, no problem. Unsupported and dismissive negative comments will be deleted as soon as I can review them. I generally have a chance to do that 2-3 times per day. If you see trolly comments like that, please ignore them. They will most likely be gone within a few hours.

  4. Good for Mella. One bad pitch all day.

  5. i see doc hasnt had time to clean up the board yet

    strange to see the sj club doing so poorly overall....


    1. I was watching the game while someone else was wasting their time. It's clean now.

  6. Panik and Noonan-there might be some backup at 2nd for Hicks. Adrianza has not shown much.
