SATURDAY Night Notes
Hi, I'm back with just some brief notes or articles for you to peruse as you have some time. If you missed my game notes from the Twins/Reds games on Friday night and Saturday afternoon, be sure to check those out below.
John Sickels has a Prospect Retro on Joe Nathan.
Here is an interesting take from MLB Trade Rumors on the Ryan Howard situation. Balls, Sticks and Stuff has another great view of the situation.
Saturday in the Park... for the former Twins
David Ortiz went 0-3 as the Red Sox DH. JC Romero came in and threw 1.2 innings of relief. He gave up two walks and a hit, but no runs, and he struck out one.
Against the Twins, Juan Castro went 0-2 while playing 3B. Chad Moeller caught a couple of innings and went 0-2 for the Reds.
Dustan Mohr played some RF and went 1-2 with the Devil Rays.
Luis Rivas played SS and went 0-1 for Cleveland.
Terry Tiffee played the whole game at 3B for the Orioles and went 1-4.
Cristian Guzman was the Nationals' DH and went 0-2. He was pinch hit for by Michael Restovich, who went 0-1.
Michael Ryan went 1-1 with a double for the Pirates.
Todd Walker and Rob Bowen both went 0-2 for the Padres.
Jacque Jones was the Cubs DH and went 1-3 with an RBI.
Shannon Stewart started in LF and led off for the A's. he went 0-2.
Grant Balfour was back on the mound for the Brewers. It didn't go as well this time out. He gave up three runs on two hits, a walk, and a hit batter. He got just two outs, one on a strikeout.
Augie Ojeda played some SS for the D-Backs and went 1-2 and was hit by a pitch.
Joe Christensen asked Tony Gwynn, Tony Oliva and Rod Carew what Joe Mauer can expect to see in 2007 after winning the batting title last year. It's a very interesting article.
Apparently Gardy is OK with Luis Castillo not playing hard. Uggh!
This came out earlier this week, but Kevin Slowey had a corneal ulcer that, if not detected for another week, could have cost him his sight. Wow!
Finally, check out the Twins Preview over at MLB Trade Rumors. Jason Kubel's health and how quickly the team is willing to go with the young pitchers are the biggest keys to the Twins 2007 season.
