  1. From a live(Ly) account, Ben lively was exciting to watch tonight. He mixes a 92-95 fastball that looked like had a lot of movement with a 83-85 mph offspeed pitch that not many could square up and a big loopy 75-79 mph curveball. He worked very fast on the mound and had a short windup, which combined with his impressive delivery from the stretch makes me think he could easily make the transition to the bullpen if needed. All in all, the kid was impressive and I’m sure he’ll be in Allentown within the next month.

  2. I went to the Lakewood game, not sure why Randolph was out again – I was looking forward to seeing him play. But I was impressed with a couple of players though. Bossart has a cannon of an arm and a good defensive catcher. He threw out 2 runners including the leadoff hitter for Greensboro who has good speed. He almost threw out a runner at 3rd on a bunt attempt, the ball got there before the runner but the tag was high on body thus called safe. However I question if he should not have gone for the safe out at first instead. He hit several line drives for hits at the plate. Tromp also hit a few drives only one fell for a hit.

    But the most impressive was Pujols he had 2 hits and a walk. A single for the first run of the game line drive to right, followed by a monster of a home run to just left of center (400) in the deepest part of the field (estimate 425+ feet) easily clearing the wall. He also has a cannon of an arm in RF throwing to catcher a few times being charged with an error once because Bossart couldn’t handle one and a runner advanced.

    No pitcher stood out and Jan Hernandez looked erratic on his throws from 3rd not only in the game but also practice in between innings.

    Pujols has better potential than I thought he did, keep an eye on him as that was his 3rd HR of this young season. He may just shoot up the prospect boards this year.

    1. That’s good news to hear on Pujols.
      I admit, I had my doubts on him with his high K rate at the lower levels.
      But there are others on this site and other sites that have him already projected rather high on the prospect lists….in the teens.
      So he will not be all that much of a surprise.

      1. yeah I noticed 2 breaking pitches he didn’t look to good on, but the tools are there – cannon of an arm

  3. I watched the LV game, Williams was on 1st when O’Sullivan threw it away, so Williams turned on the jets and made it all the way to 3rd. The Sox announcers spoke very highly of him saying how impressive he had been this series. I believe they said he was 7 for 13 in the series.

  4. What’s going on with Alfaro? I just realized that I haven’t seen him in a box score for a few a while.

  5. It hasn’t been brought up much but I think it’s sort of a bummer that Victor Arano is a reliever now while Will Morris is in the rotation for Clearwater. The same thing, to a lesser extent, in Lakewood with Jose Taveras (23 Ks, 4 BBs in 15.2 IP) in the bullpen. Mitch Gueller gets another chance at starting with very mixed results so far.
