I meant to post this last week and totally forgot about it. While watching the Toronto series, one of the TO broadcasters said that Neal Cotts has never surrendered a homerun to a lefty batter in his pro career. And they said that includes in the minor leagues.

Have any of you heard that before? Because if that's true... well then, wow.

He's a good young pitcher, I believe it. He doesn't get hit much at all by either side. His career earned runs are result of walks mostly. It seems no one hit him hard (yes, Toronto was a different story, but even that was one pitch). If he throws strikes he's gonna be dominant.

I seem to recall Hawk and DJ mentioning that several times before. It really is/was amazing.

Actually two. The non-homer was very, very close.
