  1. Moniak and Haseley are settling in. I looked at the CLW box score first each time and I’m really happy to see the 2 of them hitting better. Haseley’s creeping up on .300. I agree with other posters that he needs to get that OBP up so work a few more BBs. Moniak has struggled, as many 19 yos in A+ do. But his last 9 games have shown a different side of him. He needs to be patient. Take a BB once in a while. Keep trying to barrel up the ball and more 2 base hits and HRs will come. CLW, as a team, is up to 3rd in their league in BA and OPS but OBP is 4th from the bottom. They have a solid hitting club with power and hitting ability. If the pitching staff steadies itself, this team should take off. Pitching is pretty bad but I don’t think that will continue. Now I’ll take off my rose colored glasses… oh crap!!

    1. I have no reservations with Haseley.
      He is a hitter.
      Though it is still a SSS….he has a 14% K rate, which is excellent….though right now .the low BB rate could be an anomaly going into May, since he was 9% last year and, more important, almost 13% with close to 900 PAs at VU over three seasons, to include when he was a freshmen.
      So he should be able to make the adjustment to raise the OBP thru increased BB results..

      1. Romus don’t you divide the 13% into the 14%and add the sss to the 900 to get the ops minus the obs or am I wrong.

        1. rocco….you are getting very close.
          Soon you will , along with Matt Sheldon Klentak will be on the same analytical page…….we will dub you Professor. Anal.
          The purveyor of everything that are WHIPS, FIPS and BABIPS.

          1. These last two posts are hilarious. Always appreciate the banter between roccom & Romus.

            This site is great because of Jim, and also many of the posters. Appreciate it on the days I can find 10 minutes to read it.

  2. Hey Jim, have you seen Cole Stobbe play in extended spring training? He started the year in Lakewood then disappeared about 2 or 3 weeks ago. He is not listed on their DL like Ortiz and Muzziotti are listed and you have him listed on the Williamsport roster. So he is either injured and not listed or got demoted. He wasn’t doing half bad when he stopped playing for Lakewood.

    1. He has not been demoted. He was transferred from the Lakewood roster to the Williamsport roster on April 16, 2018. The same day, Zach Warren was transferred from Williamsport to Lakewood so it looked like one of those paper moves to add a pitcher to the Lakewood roster. I have since heard that he aggravated the injury he suffered last season, it swelled, and that he is day-to-day. He is still with the team in Lakewood. This is, however, the type of information that I can’t substantiate through org officials, so I can’t print it in the body of a story. However, the transfer transaction is from a very reliable source, and that I could print. The key here is that it is NOT a demotion, just a paper move.

      1. Thanks. Didn’t seem to be any reason for a demotion. I hate it when young talent like Ortiz, Muzziotti and Stobbe miss significant time with injury. Add Young, Fanti, and Cabral (Clearwater) to that list. Sets these kids back.

  3. Wow Irvin looking good can’t believe he was drafted in 2016.when he makes it too the show if mite be less then 2yrs.

  4. Irvin with a nice start and I love to see Quinn with a slam. Also, this is the 2nd time Haseley and MM have 2 hits each, with Gamboa too. That’s great news. What’s the deal with Listi? Too old for level? The dude can really hit.

    1. Hall was easy. He happened to be at the spot I first looked. Listi was a little harder. Several guys looked like him, but I finally spotted him. Martinelli was toughest. I don’t think I ever saw him in person, he spent so little time at the Complex before going to Williamsport, but I think I found him, too.

      1. Hah…Martinelii was the hardest for me too…..I thought he was second row….smack down in the middle.
        Hard to believe Phillies drafted three players from the same team, from a relatively small college in a less the known conference

        1. LOL … Not just three (Hall, Listi, and Martinelli). The Phillies actually drafted a fourth guy from that DBU squad. They also picked SS Camden Duzenack in the 23rd round of the 2016 draft.. Duzenack didn’t sign. He went back to school, and was drafted by Arizona in the ninth round the following year.

          1. Hinkie….that is something.
            Four from the same college team.
            That young area scout….I think his name is West, cannot really recall now…must have really fell in love with the DBU team.
