Balester is garbage. 

That's unfair and way premature.

Wagner threw 2 innings of relief in Potomac tonight: 2 IP 0 H 0 R 0 ER 0 BB 2 K.

Nice, he is shaping up after his uglier previous showings.

I'm more concerned with how he is reacting to being back.

That's why i don't even bother with some people.  Don't get me wrong he had his worst start, but he'll bounce back.

Nice.  We need to get him back, and then we get scrap one of the deadweights(Colome or Ayala).

I agree, he is a 22 year old kid, he is learning a lot of stuff at the major league level.  Unfortunately this is a consequence of taking on a "youth movement" (growing pains).

Oh absolutely, it is just nice to see that he isnt walking three batters and barely managing to get an out like his first appearance.

F U Flop. Of course he doubles with 2 outs and nobody on base.

I'm not concerned about Balester. He'll come around in due time.

Sounds like he is reacting well to being back and pitching in real games. Now we need to see some progress in his ability to cut down on the walks and getting people out consistently.

June 24's HR (solo) vs LAA, he has had two in the last month.

Good thing Flop got that double or we would have had to endure an entire inning of Colome.

Bernadina hit a double in his first AB with Columbus tonight. He didn't even have one extra-base hit up here did he?  :?

I don't think he even had one hit up here.

Nice 0-2 pitch Saul.  :roll:

This game is a complete snoozer. I might hit the sack soon. I'm beat.
