Ballester is gonna be a very good #3 pitcher in the near future. I just can't wait!

Probably Tampa.
Yikes.  That makes them a little more dangerous this season.  I'm glad the Redskins aren't going to Tampa for a game for once.

Zimmermann probably won't be in the rotation next year; at least not to start the season. Why does everyone think he'll be our #2?

Your sig needs changing, Bonifacio has solidified his 2B position.

Another thing I like about our lineups now:  much more potential for steals.  Dukes, Bonifacio, Gonzalez, Harris, Milledge, all of these guys are liable to swipe a bag now and then.

He said first sweep at Nationals Park, which is the truth.

I just don't get why everyone's hyping him so much now.  He hasn't even thrown a pitch in the big leagues.  Let's wait and see how he does in Washington or even Columbus.

Is Cadillac expected to be back this season?

Gonzalez is a good base stealer? I didn't know that. That is pretty huge.

yuck. We are going to regret not putting this game away and scoring more runs.

I think the #2 thing fits well with his projection and the stuff he has.  With that said, I don't think he will be up until next year and I agree that he is getting overhyped at this point.  People will have to lower their expectations or they will be sadly disappointed when he actually does arrive.  All the signs, though, are pointing to him as a #2 or #3 guy.

That's how it goes with minor leaguers. But I'm hoping he winds up being the truth.

I don't even see one for whatever reason.

What is going to happen to him once Guzman is back? I'd like to create our own DH, but I don't think that is a possibility.

I actually don't know if he is.  I checked his minor league numbers and there is nothing special, but I have heard and read about how much speed he has.

Who's overhyping him? I'd say he's the best minor league starter in our system.

I think he'll win Minor League Pitcher of the year and Rhinehart will win Minor League hitter of the year for our system.

I know it's better than the garbage we've had the last couple of years but we have entirely too many #3 and #4's.

they are overloading us with Debbi Taylor today.

gonzalez is a back-up much like casto.  it's a good problem to have though.

hey mike rizzo on tv.
