  1. Sue I have to say this kid Robbie ray is special. Listen the minors will provide us with lessons on the up’s and downs of baseball. Those who handle the highs and the lows will be in the bigs in no time if the talent is there. In my days of scouting I have seen guys too high and too low. Learn to manage the emotions and you will be fine as a player

    This is in the makeup of so many successful players, and Robbie Ray has these attributes

  2. How can you be in 5th place in a 4 team division. I’m sure this was just a typo or are you really saying just how bad the P-Nats are.

  3. Notice that The Big Board (outstanding document BTW) has Solis listed in the Pen. I’m sure he’s been a SP for most if not all of the season, hasn’t he? Very interested to see where 2011 takes Mr’s Ray, Solis and Cole.

  4. MDS 3 great names and 3 guys Rizzo will be very careful with. Ray and Cole they will take thier time with, Solis needs to fly thru the system (say 2 years) They also have to be pleased with Jordan, Manno, Rosenbaum. Look to see moves in the next 2 weeks

  5. For all the moans and groans about first base (of which I was guilty of!), it seems to me that we have multiple guys trying to answer those moans and groans. Marrero’s defense has improved, right? So that means we have Moore and Bloxom putting pressure on him. Anybody below them that we should be following for first base?

  6. Well Brett Newsom is pretty solid with a .280 batting average, he is the only other one to watch currently
