Grilli had a weak outing against Toledo, and the Knights lost 7-6.

J Grilli 5 7 4 2 3 5

Borchard went 0-for-5 with a strikeout.

Good news, though: Reed went 3-for-4 again (1 BB, 1 3B, 2 SB, 1 R, 2 RBI) and is back to .400! And whomever started for Birmingham threw a two-hit shutout at Carolina!

And we all thought last year was somewhat of a fluke....

This kid can flat out hit the ball. I dont see why he couldnt come in and hit .300+ for us as a rook. BP is looking less and less foolish for calling him the no. 2 prospect in baseball behind mauer and our future keeps looking brighter

borchard sucks. i remember seeing him in his first september call up and i was puzzled at how unimpressive he was. boy i wish that 5.3 million had been used for the 2000 playoff run...

There aren't many Sox players that I hate. In fact, there aren't any except for Borchard. Every time I see this guy, he isn't doing squat. Maybe he should go back into football.

He's finished. He's what you call a BUSTER. You just move on. It's really too bad for him because it's too late to go back into football and have any kind of career. You can't just change your mind like that. At least he made a lot of money though. That's all that matters.

Not to some people...

It matters to me, but it's definitely not ALL that matters.

The starter for Birmingham was Ryan Meaux.

R Meaux (W,1-1) 6 2 0 0 1 8

I guess converting him to a starter was a good idea. That's a hell of an outing.

I was being tongue in cheek there. When you don't have money you want money. When you have money, you want glory.
