I just don’t get Anthony Reyes. He goes out and one hits a powerful White Sox lineup and shuts down the Tigers in Game 1 of the WS and this year he is 0-9. He actually is strong if the first 2 innings last night and then gets lit up in the 3rd. It is all in his head if you ask me. Instead of getting a vote of confidence going into spring training, LaRussa is very adamant about him having to earn his spot. Another example of LaDunc not being able to develop young pitching.
I really like the Maroth trade on the surface. I will wait to pass judgement when the players to be named later are announced.
Speaking of young pitching, P.J. Walters was awesome in his Palm Beach debut. Walters gave up 2 solo HRs in 7 IP and struckout 10. Allen Craig had 4 hits.
Seems Colby Rasmus has been suffering from a sinus infection for most of the month of June, according to the Springfield News-Leader. If his is anything like the one I have right now, I can understand why he isn’t hitting.
Blake Dewitt was 3-5 with an RBI on Friday night. He is now hitting .284 on the season. Promote him!!
My daughter, Anna, is playing 5-6 year old girls’ t-ball. The other night she got plowed by another girl who was running wild. She stayed on the field, caught the next ball thrown to her, and hit the ball to the fence in her next at bat. I am very proud of you, Anna.
