  1. Now, I just can’t imagine why there is no discussion here?! Is anything else going on?

    Seriously though, I would really love to see some consistency out of David Whitehead. He can be a tease with performances like last night.

  2. What are the chances Gabriel Lino ever becomes a major leaguer? He’s only 22 years old and playing well in 38 games in AA/AAA so far. He could definitely stand to increase BBs and cut down on Ks, but he appears promising.

  3. Baseball Ross on Matt Imhof’s outng yesterday:
    The highlight of the morning was the five inning work of rehabbing pitcher Matt Imhof who was mixing a 76 mph curve ball to get two strikeout to go with a 90 mph fast for a fly out to left in the first inning. Imhof would strike out six in his five inning start.

  4. It has been easy to overlook Lino because his numbers since he was received in the trade have been mediocre. It seems that the powers that be began to pay closer attention at last season’s declining days. This season he has been much better at the plate as well as his defense. He has a good throwing arm. Of course, his game-calling ability would improve if he were side by side w Ruiz sometime this season.

    Maybe we shouldn’t be surprised at his elevation when we consider that Joseph has completely imploded. If we step back and consider just how many LA catchers have had successful MLB careers we would realize that for some reason they handle that position as if it were their specialty.

    Lino has done well at AAA LV. I would love to see him playing w the big club in Sept.

    It may turn out that the Phils grabbing him at his so early an age as many here regarded as a “throw-in” and unlikely to be rewarding, may turn out to yield a good MLB catcher who improves with experience and would be seen now as a “steal” and a long term answer to our bleeding catcher candidates.
