  1. It is very encouraging to see Lannan put together yet another 6 inning, 1 earned run outing. He is slowly building the case to come back to the Majors, even if not with the Nats. It would be interesting to know if and when scouts from other teams are coming to see Syracuse play.

    I see that the one run drven in was by Tim Beckham, who is hitting .197. How bad does THAT number 1 pick look right about now? It is lucky for Tampa Bay that they picked well near the top so often, because this one doesn’t look like it is going to work out.

    +1/2St.

    • Did you see that that was on 54 strikes, 53 balls?

      • No, I did not read that carefully enough. It provides me with the opportunity to say something stupid like, “See, when things are going well, Lannan wins even when the stats say he shouldn’t.”

        Even still, it is much better to see him continue to give up a single run again as opposed to his early season disasters. No need having him fall behind Zach Duke in the depth chart.

        +1/2St.

  2. good to see Zinicola performing well, not sure if his time has passed but I’m pretty sure the suspension makes this last chance
