  1. Michael Taylor with the game-winning HR.

    .361/.438/.579

    1.017 OPS

    This just screams “hey kid, Go to Stanford for the degree, not the baseball”.

  2. The Threshers had a terrific rally coming from down 7-4 in the ninth to tie it, and then getting the win in the 12th inning.

    Clay Harris 3-5 / HR, double, and game tying RBI in the 9th.

    Gus Milner 1-5 / 2 BB game tying run in the 9th (bowled over the opposing catcher in the process and knocked him out of the game) and game winning RBI in the 12th.

  3. Where do you think Taylor will end up by the end of the year? If he keeps tearing it up in Clearwater do you think the Phils would be brazen enough to send him all the way to Reading? He would be playing against more competition his age there in I’m not mistaken.

  4. Nice article in the Inquirer about Golson and Marson. Looking forward to seeing Greg as a pinch runner and defensive replacement in September. Especially if the games are meaningful. As for Lou, if Ruiz’s wrist injury were worse do you think we would have seen him called up? Or is Jaramillo still next in line?

  5. Did anyone else notice that Cardenas stole third last night after a double, then stole home one AB later? Pretty impressive speed right there, not to mention he went 2-4 with a double, 2 runs, and 3 walks.

  6. Jaramillo has also really turned it around from earlier in the year. He’s now batting .250 on the season and something well over .300 for the past month.

    Not to take anything away from Cardenas’ effort, because he had a good game, but the steal of third was uncontested they pretty much let him take it. There was no attempt at all to cover third or to make a throw. Then when he “stole” home it was actually a throwing error on the catcher trying to pick Milner off at second when he was attempting to steal second that allowed Cardenas to come home. It was a very bizarre play though. Gus Milner started to steal second, and then actually stopped about half-way there. The catcher then threw to second, but the shortstop did not catch the ball, so Cardenas came home and Milner made it safely to second.

  8. How about Travis Mattair busting through .250? His average since May 1 has to be at or around .300. Its not good to see Brummet get pounded again as it seems all of our pitchers are getting lit up as they go up a level (and some like Savery before that).
    By the way, Cardenas is not fast so I have no idea how he stole home.

  9. Lance Berkman is proof that you don’t have to be “fast” to steal bases, you have to know how to read a pitcher and pick your spots. Cardenas has average speed, he might lose a step until he gets to the bigs, but if hes a smart base runner, he can still steal 10-15 bags a season.

  10. Thank goodness they finally cut bait with that waste of space Youman. He was awful!
