Hot or Not

A final Hot or Not, spanning the last 11 days from August 14th thru present….Two words, Maikel Franco…Wondering if the acquisition of Jesmuel Valentin had a short term effect on Andrew Pullin’s production?Can we implement the additional position of “short fielder” for Willians Astudillo….?Outstanding numbers for Art Charles this week, including a game where he walked five times….Mitch Guellar has regressed to pedestrian numbers once again…Expect to see Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez in Philly this time next week…Very disappointing season for Jan Hernandez.

  1. I Iike this reference and quote from Joe Jordan on MAG:

    Joe Jordan, the Phillies’ director of player development, watched Gonzalez pitch two perfect innings with two strikeouts for Lehigh Valley on Monday night. Jordan was impressed.
    “I saw him when he first got going in spring training, and, you know, it just wasn’t working good,” Jordan said. “It was hard to find a lot that you liked.
    “But I saw him [Monday night] at Lehigh Valley, and he was a major-league pitcher. He had a good fastball, drove the ball down in the zone, followed the glove. It’s the best I’ve seen him throw. It was very exciting. And it was against a very good hitting Triple-A (Syracuse) club. For two innings he overmatched them, right through the good part of the lineup. Not only did he overpower them with his stuff, but he was making pitches. His progress has been very good.”
