Nationals lefthander Tom Milone has had to prove himself at every stop, but the 24-year-old may have pitched his way into the team's plans with a fine season at Triple-A Syracuse. Milone has lost only once since June 18, running his record to 11-6, 3.33, and he won both his starts this week, limiting opponents to three runs on 12 hits in 13 2/3 innings, with an 18-to-1 strikeout-to-walk ratio . . .

I like how they list 18-1 like it's no big deal.

18:1 is an extremely good lucking number in Call of Duty.

I think Milone is the guy I'm most interested in right now. I'm really curious to seas how his stuff translates to the majors

Milone 5IP 1H 2BB 6K's , only threw 68 pitches, this might be a hint that he might come up on saturday.

wonder if tonight is a tryout between him and Peacock for Saturday's start.  Pressure is on Peacock now.

It really should be Milone. Peacock doesn't feel major league ready for me as a starter at least.

peacock is dealing tonight as well, 5 hitter through 5 with a walk, 7Ks and no earned runs.

Why not just bring them both up and give Livo a break?

use him as a pinch hitter.  he could probably play 1B as well.

I am more than a little excited to finally see the International League Man of Mystery and his stupid good peripherals.

Discussing Milone's fantasy use next year:

Quote
Tom Milone, Nationals
I hit on Milone, 24, a couple months back in Mining the Minors. He’s a finesse lefty with top-of-the-line control (1.5 BB/9 MiLB career) who happened to lead all Triple-A pitchers in WHIP (1.03), while finishing second with 155 K’s. Now, the whiffs might not translate as well to the majors because Milone barely scrapes 90 MPH with his fastball, so he isn’t your typical “stuff” pitcher. But he clearly knows what he’s doing on the mound and how to use hitters’ weaknesses against them. His first four starts with the Nats have been solid — 3.32 ERA, 21 hits, 11:3 K:BB over 21 2/3 IPs — and if he can continue to maintain such a low walk rate, there’s no reason to think he can’t be a useable spot starter in deep NL leagues. Just realize that he comes with more blowup potential than some of these other pitchers.
