    Another very good outing for Albers. 7 IP, 5 hits, 1 BB, 2 runs. No offensive support, but a great pitching performance.

    I think they need to send him to Elizabethon... No one else there is worth watching, and he's toyed with the GCL.

    Thorpe's 38/2 K/BB in 27.2 IP is mighty impressive

    Sano was 0-4 tonight I believe.


    Any news on why Buxton is still sitting out? He didn't show too much "attitude", did he??



    edit: Sano is still coming around, no doubt. I saw him recently in person, looked very good.

    Yesterday's minor league update said that Buxton is getting a couple of days to rest due to soreness. Nothing serious, just resting up.

    Indeed-- 0-4 for Sano tonight. Happy to hear he is looking good! The milb player page for him has Sano going 12-37 (.324) w/ an OPS of 1.174 in the last ten games. 8 BB to 9 Ks in the last ten.

    Any word on Sano's D recently?

    Albers actually went 8 Ip in the loss which I think is counted as a complete game because LV didn't have to come up in the bottom of the 9th. That makes 2 straight complete games and 3 on the season for Albers.

    At some point you have to see Alberts in the majors, but my gut instinct tells me he's a Triple AAA starting pitcher.

    I saw Sano on MILB recently and he looked BIG. Any word on what his current vital stats actually are?

    I believe I read yesterday that Buxton has a sore toe.
