I don't think Gorzelanny would be a very effective reliever.

only 23 games :shrug:

i'm willing to put him in the rotation and hope that the injury caused him to serve up the gopher ball at an absurd rate.  i still like the trade, but at some point, we have to see what pea**** can do ... he could be ready.

Too long a wait. Pea**** needs to be given a shot for a short period of time this season -like after the All-Star Break. Let's see what he's got at the Major League level and how he fits in the scheme of things.   :popcorn:

Pea**** has been REALLY impressive this year. He has shown great control.

he gave up a leadoff triple tonight in the 7th ... worked around it to retire two outs and they pulled him b/c his count was @ 95.

I'll see him for the second time tonight. Wonder if he can top his 14 K game!

So um, why exactly is Pea**** still down on the farm?  Are the Senators in contention or something?

First in their division, the next team is 4 GB and the worst is 10.5 GB. They are 2 GB the leader of the other division (New Hampshire, TOR).

Second time through... Pea**** did not disappoint.

Arm strength wasn't there as it was the first game... he was at 90-93 all night instead of 92-95 as he was the first game. Curveball is a true plus pitch, as when he needed a K or an easy out, he'd throw it over for a strike or burry it in the dirt.

Changeup still wasn't anything special, but I at least saw one time where he dropped it in the dirt rather than floating it over the plate... so that's a positive.

Most of the his strikeouts came early on as he was just blowing fastballs by the hitters. You have to remember, most AA pitchers can't throw 92-93, and if they can, they're usually in the pen.

He did have some wildness where the ball would get away from him and sail wide to his arm side... but other than that, he looked good, and ready for AAA.

Not sure why he was taken out around 85 pitches... I wanted to see him work out of trouble, but the Harrisburg manager is crazy into micro managing his bullpen... here's a tip, dude... this isn't the MLB, you don't need to burn through five pitchers to get seven outs.

Overall, Pea**** wasn't at his best... but even then, he completely dominates AA hitters. He has nothing left to prove. Move him up.

I wouldn't mind seeing Pea**** get a chance this year as a Sept call up, but I'd rather see him get a shot out of ST next year. Looks like we might have a good one though! Nice report Linty!

I think Pea**** wasn't at his best because he wasn't suppose to start yesterday. Somebody else was going to start that game but because of a 40min rain delay they decided to throw Pea**** in there. I'd say he did pretty good given that he started on a moments notice.

No, that's not what happened.

Due to EL rules, if a game starts, it must be finished.

So, the game started on Tuesday night, got a half inning finished and was rained out for the rest of the night.

The next day (starting with the bottom of the first) Wednesday's starters took over as if they were starting the game.

He was pitching on normal rest.

Okay! This article confused me when it said "Named an EL All-Star earlier in the day, Pea**** took over for Erik Davis following a 45-min rain delay in the middle of the first inning. He proceeded to pitch four hitless frames before Wes Hodges led off the fifth with a single."
