    1. so far he’s been impressive but it’s only been a few batters, will be interesting to see how it goes for him though. I didn’t even know he was moved to the pen after spring training, have the Phillies said he’s going to stay there? I know that Reading has Anthony Vasquez going tonight, I had wondered why he was in the rotation over Gonzalez.

  1. Gkit you have some very nice video’s , I’m glad to Martin’s 1st hr was on a lefty he wasn’t hitting them last yr. Medina does have a nice hook , I like that CLEARWATER line up .Kingery 6 runs 5 hits 4 walks , then Tocci then the power Martin , Zach Green, Heris Rodriguez is there too. Hos , C haven’t hit yet but they will Tobias and Tromp did well .

  2. Anyone worried about the errors by Crawford ? He had a ton last year and the hope was for him to fix that problem in AA but that has not been the case.

    1. Crawford is a smooth fielder so I wouldn’t worry about errors. Early in the season, it’s tough getting warm and therefore having a feel for the ball. He also could have Major League-itis. Everyone’s telling him he should be in the Majors soon. He might be trying a little too hard. Relax and have some fun while you can. Grown men getting to play a kids game doesn’t come around too often.

  3. Very, very early to jump to conclusions or even make certain judgements. However, I don’t believe C Randolph will be with the Lakewood club when they come in to Delmarva at the end of May. Hopefully he gets it ironed out, was looking forward to seeing him. Looks like the outfield progression still needs a ton of work, and could be factoring into the lack of Quality At-bats…

    1. Well, it’s a very small sample size. Furthermore, it may be one of the first times that C Randolph has ever had to play baseball in cold weather. He’s 18 years old – let’s give him a short time to adjust (like mid-May) and then see what he’s doing. This kid can hit – and I mean really hit – I’m not worried about him.

  4. Hopefully the cold weather is the main culprit for Hoskins slow start.
    He should get off the schneid soon.

  5. On the Quinn error, not sure why he called off Cozens who clearly looked to have it while Quinn had to come from so far over and was on a tough angle. The good thing was the next pitch or two later they got out of the inning.

  6. Tocci a hitting machine so far with 8 hits in 17 ABs, but all singles. Interestingly, Alfaro has 7 hits in 14 ABs, 6 singles and 1 double.

  7. Reading opening the flood gates, already 7-0. Crawford, Alfaro leading the way, Cozens just got thrown out trying to turn a single into a double but he knocked in the run.
