Lost in all the Strasburg hype is Espinosa going 3/4 at the plate with a lot of the FO there to watch good showing for him.

Thanks, Bowden :clap:

It's becoming clearer and clearer that Jim Bowden was possibly the worst GM in baseball.  His baseball IQ makes Dayton Moore and Omar Minaya blush.

:SportsFanAssClown bat signal:

[sportfan] Oh BS!  Bowden is the man, it's Rizzo and Livo's fault some of those prospects didn't pan out.  Start Bernadina!  Nieves is the best catcher in baseball.  [/assclown]

High school pitchers scouted by Bowden and reaching the majors = 0

That number won't be likely to change.

I assume he replaced Atilano, but according to NFA Brian, Chuck James replaced him.

Maybe Martis?  Martis would have deserved it considering how he's pitched. :spaz:

I don't even know where I should post this, but it is a cool little bit relayed by Harrisburg skipper Randy Knorr about his memories from the 1993 World Series.

Quote
Senators manager Randy Knorr served as Pat Borders’ backup catcher throughout most of his playing time in Toronto, including the back-to-back World Series championships in 1992 and ‘93.

Knorr didn’t play in the ‘92 series and made a brief appearance in Philadelphia in 1993 when Borders was replaced for a pinch runner in the eighth inning of Game 5, a contest otherwise remembered for Curt Schilling’s five-hit shutout to force a Game 6.

Veteran reliever Danny Cox entered, along with Knorr, in the bottom of the eighth. Cox’s repertoire included just two pitches, Knorr remembers — a fastball and a slider.

With Milt Thompson at the dish, Cox repeatedly shook off “fastball” and “slider” signs from his catcher, forcing a baffled Knorr to call time-out and run to the mound.

Before Knorr was able to muster much of a “what the heck,” Cox interrupted the then 24-year-old catcher with a simple question:

“Do you know where you are?” Cox asked as he motioned toward the vociferous Veterans Stadium crowd. Cox reminded his young battery mate that this was the World Series, that he needed to take a few seconds to bask in the moment, to focus on the magnitude of the event and, God forbid, enjoy it.

“For him to think of me in that moment, it was awesome,” Knorr says, calling it the favorite memory of his 19-year playing career.

Two days later at Skydome in Toronto, Knorr was in the bullpen warming up Todd Stottlemyre in the bottom of the ninth inning, “just in case we tied it and went to extra innings.” His Jays trailed 6-5, and Joe Carter was at the plate facing the Phillies’ Mitch Williams.

Knorr never saw the home run — live, anyway — but he noticed the relievers in his bullpen rising in brief but muted anticipation as the ball traveled toward them.

After landing in Toronto’s bullpen, the famous home run ball was plucked from the turf by Knorr and tossed to bullpen coach John Sullivan, who ultimately handed it off to Carter, whose walk-off gave the Jays an 8-6 win and a World Series title.

Balester getting rocked again today.

3 IP 7 H 5 ER 3 BB 2 K 1 HR. ERA up to 9.68. Might be time to move him to a relief role.

He needs to junk the slider and go back to throwing the Curve and 4-Seamer. He's had all of his success throwing up in the zone.
