Man it feels good to be back. See ya tomorrow!

PS: The wall to wall coverage (in game updates and the like) was a one time thing.


  1. what was guerra's gb:fb ratio?? how was his stuff? was there movement? was there location? how many different types of pitches did he throw? any new ones? has his velocity increased (i heard it hit 95 before the season started)? what was the mph difference between his fastball and his change up? how is his curveball looking so far?? any info on this would be huge, he's a great prospect and is only 18!!!

  2. LOL. Wow. You'd love David.

    Guerra's FB:GB ratio was 1:8

    I don't know how he looked, since I'm not in St. Lucie, not can I watch the games.

    The report of his increased velocity is 100% accurate, see below for more details on that. His change is a plus+, and his curve is developing. Both David and I feel he could end the year in Binghamton, and enter the top 10 in terms of prospect rankings heading into 2008.

    Really, there's alot to be excited about, as we potentially could have 3 top 10 prospects by years end (assuming Humber doesn't make starts in NY). Carp and Pena have outside chances of being in the rankings. Our farm is alive and well.
