Dallas Braden: Take Off My Shirt!

Mark Feinsand: OAKLAND – Robinson Cano broke out a “Get Off My Mound” T-shirt in the visiting trainer’s room before Monday night’s game, causing an eruption of laughter inside the Yankees’ clubhouse. Even Alex Rodriguez laughed at the shirt, which is being sold in the A’s team store, a nod to Dallas Braden’s famous words […] [Read More]

Let’s Make the All Star Game Better

A buddy of mine texted me yesterday. He’s a Tampa Bay Rays fan (yes they actually exist outside of Florida) and the All-Star rosters were already setting him off. His text: If Rivera is an All-Star, then Soriano deserves to be one too. Probably. There’s lots of guys that deserve to be All-Stars and Rafael […] [Read More]

Minors Report for 6/24/10 (Brandon Laird Has Huge Day; Austin Romine; Hector Noesi; Andrew Brackman & Zolio Almonte Promoted)

In promotion news, Andrew Brackman was promoted to Trenton & Zolio Almonte was promoted to Tampa. Almonte is a 21-year old center-fielder. This is quite the leap for the young man. On the opposite side of the spectrum, Neil Medchill was demoted from Tampa to Charleston. I am going to break from the normal format […] [Read More]

Minors Report for 6/23/10 (Eduardo Nunez; Austin Romine; Graham Stoneburner)

Charleston was off tonight as they are on their All-Star Break. Scranton: Eduardo Nunez went 2-for-5 with two RBI but it wasn’t enough as Scranton fell, 7-6. Nunez is now hitting .317 on the season. A right-handed bat, Nunez has posted good splits against both types of pitchers: .313/.378/.418 vs. lefties; .316/.345/.409 vs. righties. Those […] [Read More]

Minors Report for 6/22/10 (Zach McAllister; Austin Romine; Dellin Betances; Sally League All-Stars)

Scranton: Zach McAllister pitched a solid game, but still took the loss as Scranton fell, 3-1. McAllister went seven innings, allowing three runs on five hits. He walked two, struck out one, and allowed a home run. McAllister is now 5-5 on the season with a 4.50 ERA (14 starts, 78 IP, 88 H, 19 […] [Read More]

Minors Report for 6/21/10 (Ivan Nova; Gary Sanchez; Brett Marshall; Manny Banuelos)

A light schedule overall down on the farm as Trenton & Charleston were off while Tampa was postponed; so some of the focus will turn to teams deep down in the farm. So deep down you can barely see the players playing there. Typically speaking, I don’t report too much on these leagues; most of […] [Read More]

Minors Report for 6/20/10 (Brandon Laird; David Phelps)

Tampa had the day off. Scranton: One of those days where there isn’t too much to report on in Scranton. Jesus Montero went 0-for-4 as Scranton was able to pound out eight hits…but only one run. That run came off of the bat of Reegie Corona (23, IF), who hit a solo home run. Corona […] [Read More]

Minors Report for 6/19/10 (Jesus Montero; Brandon Laird; Austin Romine; Marcos Vechionacci)

Scranton: Wouldn’t it be nice if Jesus Montero is going on a bit of a power surge? Montero went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run, while Eduardo Nunez added two hits (including a double) and a run batted in…but it wasn’t enough as Scranton lost, 5-4. Montero’s home run was his fourth of the season, […] [Read More]

Minors Report for 6/18/10 (Jesus Montero; Jonathan Albaladejo; Eduardo Nunez; Hector Noesi; George Kontos Returns)

Scranton: Does Jesus Montero think he is Brett Gardner all of a sudden? Montero went 3-for-4 tonight with a single, double, and a triple (his second in two games!) to help Scranton take a 4-1 victory. All of a sudden, Montero is hitting .405 over his last ten games, and has eight extra base hits […] [Read More]

Minors Report for 6/17/10 (Marcos Vechionacci; Shaeffer Hall)

Scranton: Jesus Montero actually legged out a triple tonight, but that was one of the three hits Scranton was able to muster as they got shutout, 2-0. The triple was Montero’s second of the season (which probably means that if Brett Gardner was running, they would have been inside-the-park home runs). Zack McAllister only lasted […] [Read More]
