Great division though.
Um what? I believe the season series between the two teams is 4-4...but that's ok, I bet you had too much Champagne from last night.

#20 - Dodgers select Chris Withrow

http://www.minorleaguebaseball.com/m...jsp?mc=withrow

Fastball: Withrow's fastball was in the 89-94 mph range. In the strike zone, he was consistently at 91-93 mph.
FB Movement: Withrow's fastball had bore and sink in the strike zone.
Curve: Withrow threw his curve 74-78 mph. It has the chance to be an above-average pitch.
Changeup: His changeup sat in the 79-81 mph. It's an average offering that he commands well.
Control: Withrow had good command of all of his pitches, particularly the fastball and change.
Poise: He was poised on the mound, though it was just a scrimmage.
Physical Description: Withrow is a very projectable and athletic right-hander, with plenty of room to get bigger and stronger.
Medical Update: Healthy.
Strengths: Good three-pitch mix, excellent mechanics, ability to repeat delivery.
Weaknesses: Withrow pitches for a small private school, so there's a little bit of a big fish-in-a-small pond mentality.
Summary: With athleticism, very clean mechanics and three pitches that have a chance to be above-average, Withrow is very intriguing. Throw in the fact that his father pitched at the University of Texas and in the White Sox organization and the bloodlines are there as well.

Quote:
39. Los Angeles Dodgers (for Lugo)

James Adkins, LHP, U of Tennessee
Height/Weight: 6-6, 225 | DOB: 11/26/85

Adkins is a big left-hander but throws his fastball at 88-92 mph. His slider is his out-pitch and it flashes plus-plus ability at times. For the most part he relies on command and control to get batters out and he lacks a reliable change-up. Adkins carried a no-hitter into an SEC tournament start but probably won't see similar success in pro ball as a starter with only two pitches. If he doesn't quickly pick up an off-speed pitch, he is likely headed to the bullpen as a set-up man.

Seems like an OK beginning to the draft by LA. But these type of drafts are a different animal than any other sport.

The Madres score 5 runs in the bottom of the 9th to complete the series sweep of the Dahyers.

The home plate umpire showed that he was a AAA call up. He was terrible.

The Dahyers really need to fix their defense. Coming into tonight they were second in the league in errors...they may be first now.

(Edit: They have committed one fewer error than the Marlins...good for second most in the NL. Fourth in the bigs.)

Yeah I don't disagree there, Pierre has a weak arm and so does Gonzo. Pierre was benched tonight for the first time since 2002. Thank god. I still don't think we have all the pieces together. We are only 2 games back so I am not worried until August or so rolls around.

Padres have ruined Dodgers the last few years and maybe even last decade. Check those stats. I believe Padres even knocked out the Dodgers in making the playoffs a few years back.

What does everyone think of interplay? I think that the NL and AL shouldn't play.

My brother and I were just talking about this a couple weeks ago when the Mets played the Yankees and we both look at the subway series as not really a big deal anymore because they play each other 6 times a year every year so it has no feel anymore despite what the media thinks of it. I think it's ok to a certain extent but I think they play too many games versus the other league. They probably will never get rid of it but I would like to see them trim it down to maybe only 2 series one home and one away.

Fans probably like seeing different teams and faces instead of the same ones from the division, but series like Colorado vs. Baltimore and Washington vs. Minnesota do nothing for me.

Side note: Soriano is 3-3 with 3 hr in top 6th right now.

Rockies situational hitting is horrible. Holliday stranded 3 runners in scoring position, Helton stranded one as well.

SD gets a taste of their own medicine!

Ol' Hiram gets gunned out as the winning run trying to steal 3rd...great throw by Jamie Burke (the best backup catcher in ML history).

Ibanez homers in the 11th.

Now JJ's in and it's done. Yep, it's done.

WOOHOO GO M'S!!!

Espn is breaking down every small detail of Roger Clemens start today. He threw 108 pitches and 63% of those were strikes and if anyone cared at all he threw 62 fastballs and 37 splitters.

I will love the day Hurdle is fired...
Go ahead and take out your best left handed hitter in the top of the 9th after he singles. I know you want someone faster, but Carroll likely won't score from first unless its an extra base hit. I just think Hurdle uses his bench too much, and pitchers too much in situations. Of course, thats what we all know already.

No wonder Torres has been costing them games as of late.

As for this Yankees series....they fought 'em hard last night and today....pfft.
I still say the Pirates are just this side of putting it all together, being successful and very dangerous....at this point however, I'll be happy just avoiding the sweep in NY.

Man the Blue Jay pitchers must feel like they are on a vacation right now the way the dodgers are hitting the ball. The Dodgers were something like 1/11 with RISP the other night, despite somehow pulling out the win

Lopez had a quality start this evening in Baltimore, giving up 2 runs in the first and then shutting down the Orioles through 7. Good to see that.

You know, its really funny how the Orioles announcers were saying how the O's could go on a hot streak playing the Rockies and Nats, when those teams have nearly identical records as the O's.

I'm hitting the road in @ 20 minutes to see my Mets in Detroit. It's a 3 hour trip for me. If it weren't for IL play, I would really only get to see NYM once per year...in Pittsburgh.

Ryan Spilborghs is earning himself some more playing time. He's homered twice and has six RBI's on the day.
