Kind of gives the expression " eating crow" a whole new meaning.

There aren't too many players I absolutely hate, but Aaron Crow and Felipe Lopez are 2 that I hope fail miserably.

Storen's in the big leagues, and has been pretty productive since his call-up. Crow was given the ambitious assignment to Double-A ball out of spring training, and the results weren't what he'd hoped for: a 5.66 ERA in 22 starts. Sent to Class A this month, he's at 5.65 through two starts, so he's nothing if not consistent. His issues thus far are getting left-handed hitters out, and his propensity to allow bases on balls. He's racked up 102 strikeouts in more than 133 innings, but has walked 61.

Hey Felipe Lopez pitched pretty well in that game that went extra innings.  I forget who it was or against but it went something like between 14 and 17 innings.

Found the link.  He got them out of the inning with no runs scored!  Also thanks to a METS player getting out at 2nd!

he's been demoted to A ball (Wilmington) and plays against Potomac this week per Ben.[...]


His most recent appearance was this past Friday (13th) vs Salem, a 5-4 win for the Blue Rocks - 7.1 IP, 7 hits, 4 runs (all earned), 1 walk, 6 strikeouts, no homers allowed; got his ERA down to 5.40 and his record to 1-1 (http://web.minorleaguebaseball.com/milb/stats/stats.jsp?sid=t426&gid=2010_08_13_salafa_wilafa_1&cid=426&t=g_box).

He is scheduled to pitch tonight at Frederick.

Lol. In high-A ball, his second professional season, his third if you count his Indy-ball stint. Against Baltimores high-A affiliate? What a joke Crow is. I'm placing my bet now this bum never tastes the majors.

My bad. I forgot that not only did Crow not sign until August, he didn't pitch last year. Although he did pitch both 08 and 09 in indy ball, about five games combined. So this is his third season if you count independent leagues, and first professional season. You can understand how someone would just assume he made at least one minor league start last year... He should be on his third professional season if he'd signed with the Nats, and didn't throw a pitch until four months ago? What a joke, and what a way to lose two years of your career.

Looking up his career stats, I wonder how much it is to blame. He pitched one game, just one inning, with Fort Worth in Indy ball in 08. He pitched three games, for 17 innings in 09. So you're looking at March-April of 08 until April of 10, he threw 18 innings in 4 games?!? Err, that's not exactly going to be a path towards a successful start in professional ball. Did Crow pitch in any fall/winter leagues with the Royals last year, or were those 18 innings it for two years? I'm pretty sure I recall he pitched in the Arizona Fall League, but didn't see it on his career list. Regardless, whether 18 innings in two years or 18 innings in 18 months, I'd have to say it's a miracle he's performing this well. What an absolute moron. He's ruined any chance he had at a successful career before it began over $500k.

If he had signed with the Nats in 08, gotten a few starts in the minors that season, who knows what kind of a pitcher he could have developed into. But no one, not even a Strasburg caliber pitcher, could enter professional ball and face the difficulty level of hitting in AA/A after having only pitched in college after having pitched only 18 innings in two full years in between.

Interestingly he hasn't pitched since the aforementioned outing against Frederick, a week ago today...he did not pitch in the home series against Lynchburg, and will not pitch in any of the series at Potomac (the Wilmington starter for tonight's finale will be Melville, vs the P-Nats' Barthmaier).

Aaron Crow is eating crow. He should have signed with the nats. Not that I would have liked him to sign but you don't mess with first round money HOMEBOY. [/Antoine Dodson]

This has got to be the biggest embarassment for the Hendricks Brothers.  They may have set this guy back several years, if not permanently.  No question if he stayed healthy and signed in '08 he'd be a likely call up in September.  The lack of innings over two years really set him back.  Eventually, the kid may work his way back if his talent is anything like what the draft types said. Look how long it took Gaving Floyd to figure things out.  But he may end up with less of a career than Dewon Brazleton (just to obsess over one incredible draft).

Too bad I'm not still around... I'd show up just to heckle him... and with the crowds the Hillcats draw, he'd be certain to hear every last word I had to say!

His line from last night: 6 IP, 8 hits, 4 runs allowed (all earned), 1 walk, 7 strikeouts, 1 home run given up, ERA now at 5.79. Got no decision as Blue Rocks ultimately prevail in 12 innings, 8-7: http://web.minorleaguebaseball.com/milb/stats/stats.jsp?sid=t426&t=g_box&gid=2010_08_27_wilafa_lynafa_1

According to some on this board if you were to show up and heckle Crow.  He would then have the right to throw a baseball at you.  WATCH OUT LOW BRIDGE, LINTY!
