...Susac with concussion problems...



Hadn't heard about Susac having head trouble.
I did read that he's been laid up for the past couple weeks with a bad hamstring.

I was actually at the last game he played but I think it was injured before that. He had a couple hits, on his 2nd, a ringing gapper that short hopped the wall in right center, he stopped at 1B. His next AB, he fouled off 1 pitch, I thought he'd broken his bat, but he then left and was PH for by Quiroz (who tripled).

Hey NLTCrow,

Well, maybe I'll get a chance to ask Susac how he's feeling next weekend. The Grizzlies are in Round Rock Texas for 4 games, and I'm going to brave the heat and humidity to go see them.

It's been both hot and humid here, but at least all the games start at 7:00.

Re: What's Going On With Our MiLB Pitching?


Hey 58,

Yeah, but Runzler remains Runzler. 19 walks in 32 IP will keep a guy from getting his ticket to the majors punched.

IMO, the greatest asset for relief pitchers is the ability to not give up a lot of walks.

Now...talking about a guy with the exact opposite problem...Jose DePaula.

Last night, I saw DePaula pitch 2 innings, and his fastball was in the 92-96 MPH range...but of the 25 pitches he threw, 22 of them were for strikes. He spends WAY too much time in the middle of the strike zone, to where opposing batters can limit their focus, improving their chances of solid contact.

When DePaula keeps his fastball down, he's unhittable. But if he leaves it up, at all, it gets hit, and hit hard. He's notched up 24 K in 28 IP, but allowed 38 hits!

DePaula would benefit from becoming a little more creatively wild, keeping batters off-balance by throwing the occasional inside screamer.

The other guy who was fun to watch last night was Eric Cordier, who flat killed in his 2 IP. His heater was in the 100-102 MPH range, and he had zero control problems. When guys can hit his fastball, it tends to go a long way, but all the Express batters could do last night was produce monstrously high cans of corn for the Grizzlies OFs to catch.

Brett Bochy got called into duty as the starter last night...went 5, giving up 2 IP, but he is not a starter. No way.
