how's this for irony - Peoria will have prospects from both the Nats and the Padres.

gotta say it . . .

We'll see how it plays in Peoria.


I like the idea of sending Hassell.  He's right at the right level - a month or so in AA.

I'll be curious whether Antuna gets much playing time.

The guy I am happiest to see get this look is Frizzell. He can clearly mash A-ball pitching, he's 23, let's see what he can do against real competition. I hope him and Hassell do well and then start next year in AA with a chance to move up quickly.

It will also be really interesting to see Baker in this competition, he has hit at every level and can't be ignored much longer if he keeps hitting .300.

I hope Knowles and Cate are coming out of the pen because that's where I hope to see them both next year and in the future of their theoretical pro career.

Hassell and Baker are just right for AFL.

But Antuna? might this be Antuna's last chance?

AFL will use 2023 MLB rules - pitch clock and shift/pick-off restrictions, etc.
