Assuming he hasn't had any sacrifices, HBP, etc., that's 4 walks in 10 plate appearances. Damn...

I just got back from the game and the bar. It was partially awesome, and partially terrible because almost all of our allocated pitchers threw today, but none of our positional players did.

Egbert looked solid, but had a lot more balls hit in the air than I expected. He sat around 87-89 for the most part using his sinker almost exclusively as his FB, and touched 91 on the scoreboard once or twice. His sinker is really an impressive pitch. It has some nice late two seam action on it for some added deception. His change was effective, but I couldn't really see any movement other than down on it(not that it's a bad thing, I just thought he would have more "turn over" on it to go along with his fastballs).

Russell pitched at 91-94 with really solid movement(two-seam and sinking action), and his breaking ball was still lacking. Most of the time it is more of a rolling gradual breaker(not quite rainbow), than a real biting curve, but once or twice he had some nice late breakers(slider-ish) on the right side of the plate.

Day was a little erratic but still giving the batters a bit of a fit with his slider(hung one real bad, but the batter just got under it). His FB seemed pretty heavy popping the catchers mitt nicely, but it was only around 92-93.


BTW Sockin'. The Hernandez who threw wasn't Fernando. It was some other guy named Chris.

I wouldn't expect a lot of movement on any of the pitchers' offspeed stuff. Isn't it pretty dry in Arizona right now?

Indeed it is dry, and it does take a little while to adjust you breaking stuff to the air down here. However, it isn't as impossible as some make it out to be to get your pitches moving down here. Just look at Webb's sinker, or Valverde's slider. Given those are vets who have been pitching in this atmosphere for a good while, but it was just to make a point of sorts. It does make sense that some pitchers stuff just won't react right down here because they won't be looking to change things for a month and a half stint that really doesn't matter in the grand scheme of things.

I still expected more "turn over" on Egbert's change. All his FB's have that natural movement, so I figured that he would want his change to have the same look. He does sell it very well though.

Sweeney is taking major steps back in my view. He's not staying healthy. He's not hitting for power. He can afford another year at AAA, but he'll be 24 in 2009, which is kind of a make or break age for hitting prospects.

Halfway through the fall season. Sweeney still does not have an extra base hit, and all our pitchers are walking a lot of guys. The only bright spot is Getz and maybe Hernandez.

Sweeney didn't play in the most recent game so his stats are the same.

Lucy picked up a couple hits and is now hitting .150 (3-30) after going 2-3 yesterday. 2 BB and 7 K on the season.

Getz maintains his production and is at .320 (8-25).

Russell - same
Egbert - same
Day - same
Hernandez - 5.2 IP, 0 ER (2 unearned), 3 H, 3 BB, 6 K

Getz ought to be Richar's main competition next spring. Sweeney worries me; he can hit Colon and nobody else. Did we have him rated higher than Chris Young when we made the Vazquez trade?
