Cole Kimball is closing out the game today... to say I'm impressed by his Pitch F/X numbers would be an understatement.

Sitting at 96-97 MPH on his fastball, followed by an 82-83 MPH Change Up.

Struck out the side to end the game.

Might have something in Kimball.

How in the world did Burgess go over Moore?

How in the world did Burgess go over Moore?

Simplest explanation would be that Burgess finished in AA while Moore is still in A+, so that Nats would have needed to use an exemption to send him. There's no reason why he can't go next year (Moore, that is) and it's not like he's so close to the majors that this hurts his development. AFL is designed for top upper-minors prospects, so they don't let just anyone go.

You have to make room for the organization's hitter of the year.  For no other reason than to keep the hot hand possibly going.

More meaningless at-bats in essentially the offseason to help his average early in the next minor league season? :hurr:

I'd maybe prefer the Nats send him to API in AZ rather than the AFL.

what's the prognosis for Moore - do they think he's going to be a legit MLB player in a few?  How does he compare to Marerro?

He has to do well next year because otherwise he might have just been a one-year wonder. Has to prove he wasn't the single A Chris Shelton.

He was old for A ball last year. If he keeps it up in AA they might have something.

Pea**** goes 1 IP, 3 K's, gives up a run on two hits though.

Kimball goes 1 IP, 1 K, no hits or walks.

Is Harper playing today?

Today's his 18th birthday, he joins the team tomorrow and will play his first game on Wednesday per Doug Harris.

All eyes on whether or not #34 shows up at some point.

The current roster:

Adam Carr, reliever
Brad Pea****, SP
Sammy Solis, SP
Derek Norris, C
Steve Lombardozzi, 2B
Michael Burgerss, OF

Potential additions:
Steve Souza, 3B
A.J. Cole, P
Robbie Ray, P
Bryce Harper, Phenom

A bigger question than why send Burgess over Tyler Moore would be how in the world could Steven Souza ever be considered as an "addition" over Moore?  What has he ever done to warrant this opportunity?

Souza was always a prospect, and his season was shortened by a boneheaded medication error, he needs the ABs.

Solis went 3IP, 1R, 2H, 1BB, 1K

Sadly, he never got over 92 on his fastball, usually sitting in the 90-91 zone.

I thought he threw a lot harder than that, somewhere in the 93-95 range.

Norris - 2/4, R, 1B, 2B, RBI, BB, K, SB

Lombardozzi - 1/3, 2R, 2B, BB

Carr - (Win, 1-0) 2IP, 0R, 0H, 1/1 K/BB, Topped out at 94 MPH, was around 91-93 MPH average.

i wonder if the above could be a package for Grienke.

Carr is a RP that's what? 26? I doubt he'd be much interest to anyone.

Norris and Lombardozzi on the other hand would be very attractive.

Norris is going to be a superstar.  Wonder if we could see him next year as a September call up?

I always thought he was just a slightly harder-throwing Lannan.  That's why I was never able to get too excited about him.  But hey, Cliff Lee sits in the same zone.

Solis imo did well to have his minor league dayview against some of the best prospects in the AFL.

Brycer Harper, who isn't eligible to play today, is standing on the second step of the dugout, a bat in his hand. Think he wants in?
