Stand Back, Look Out! It the fickle fan express departing from Dustin McGowan station.

Sorry guys just had to get that off my chest for all the fair weather fans who panic and bale at the drop of a hat.

In all seriousness though what is wrong with McGowan, and I am sure there is going to be no shortage of opions on this question in todays post.

So I will bravely step forward and offer one of my own. Dustin McGowan is pressing. He knows a promotion to AAA is around the corner and pressing to make it happen, and as a direct consequence his command which has been so good for the last year and a haft as abandoned him, this is particularly ture in his last 2 starts where he has put himself in a hole by getting into a inordinate number of 3 2 counts on batters

McGowan needs to step back realize he can't force a promotion and above all else trust his stuff
_Jordan - Sunday, May 09 2004 @ 11:44 AM EDT (#15543) #
Tyrell Godwin would make a great Blue Jay ... stone-cold in April, red-hot in May. Slowly but surely, the Fisher Cats are hitting their stride offensively, though JF Griffin seems to be stuck in reverse.

McGowan is interesting. I think goatboy's theory that he's pressing too hard has merit -- all Dustin's been hearing, pretty much from the end of last season, is that he's Syracuse- and then Toronto-bound; it was a mild surprise that he started the year in New Hampshire (though unquestionably it was the right move), and it might be that he's gotten ahead of himself. Even more simply, this is probably just a bad stretch; everyone goes through one of these, when your command isn't there and your best pitches aren't working the way they're supposed to. Probably all Dustin needs is to step back and take a deep breath; once he fires off a good start or two, not worrying about where he's heading and when, he'll be back on track. There's nothing to worry about here.

It's important to keep in mind two things about McGowan. One is that he's 22 and not at all ready for the big leagues. Many Blue Jays fans are still lamenting the fact that Kelvim Escobar, Chris Carpenter and Roy Halladay were rushed to the majors too soon. The second thing is that we've all heard minor-league mavens declare that Dustin's stuff is better than Doc's, and I'm sure it is. But you know, no Jays pitcher in the last ten years had better raw stuff than Escobar, and he remains an expensive enigma out in Anaheim. Success in major-league pitching springs almost entirely from commanding your pitches within the strike zone and changing speeds effectively. That takes experience, and McGowan is still in school. He'll be in Syracuse well before the end of the year, and will probably get a very long look next spring, but patience should be the watchword here. Remember Doc's 10.71 ERA in 2000? He was 23.

Hey Great Job guys ! I will be around later to help call some games.

The F-Cats radio guys have taken notice of our typing of their Play by Play it seems.

" #174241 Posted 05/08/2004 08:49 PM by Board Op:

Rob, We apollogize for the "jazz" music on the air during th double A games, but when the phoneline at the ballpark fades out we are told to play a music fill-in and wait for the line to reconnect.

Thanks "
" #174244 Posted 05/08/2004 08:53 PM by Rob:

Haha, no problem. I kind of liked the music last night.

#174245 Posted 05/08/2004 08:54 PM by Board Op:

well that is not what is posted here. just reading the message boards and it sounded like the was an annoyance and we apologize."

"#174246 Posted 05/08/2004 08:57 PM by Rob:

If that was someone from the radio team, thanks for stopping by and don't worry about any problems with the radio feed. We enjoy listening to the games no matter what.

#174247 Posted 05/08/2004 08:59 PM by Board Op:

ok good...and please keep listening...if there are any problems be sure to let us know..we are just trying to make the feed as good as possible for you to enjoy. Thank You though."

"174254 Posted 05/08/2004 09:50 PM by Rob:

Just out of curiosity: Is anyone actually out there following along?

#174255 Posted 05/08/2004 09:55 PM by Board Op:

of course"
_goatboy - Sunday, May 09 2004 @ 11:59 AM EDT (#15545) #
I agree completely with you Jordan, McGowan's going to be fine. I see no reason to premote him to soon, he'll be in Syarcuse soon enough, and I expect we'll in Toronto in september if just for a cup of coffee.
_goatboy - Sunday, May 09 2004 @ 12:02 PM EDT (#15546) #
Sorry, we'll see him see him in Toronto in September if just for a cup of coffee. duh :- )

Snavely narrowly beat out Tingler for today's third star...

Tingler's line: 2-4, 2B, 2 RBI, 0 BB, 1 K, HP

Tingler's season totals: 109 AB, 7 2B, 0 3B, 12 RBI, 7 HP, 19 BB, 9 K, 1 SB, 2 CS, .303/.431/.367.

Jayce might even be surpassing Vito in the first-Dunedin-hitter-promoted-to-Manchester sweepstakes...
Mike Green - Sunday, May 09 2004 @ 12:41 PM EDT (#15548) #
All right, BB minor league network hounds, so you wanna be a stringer. Here's your chance. Chris Baker hurls for Syracuse at 2; Gustavo Chacin for New Hampshire at 1, and TBA for Charleston at 6. These games can be heard via (the Charleston game can be heard through their opponent Lakewood's broadcast). COMN. Dunedin sends Rosario to the hill against Vero Beach, but the game's not on internet radio.

I'll do the first half of the Syracuse game, and I'll be available for second-half of the Charleston game, unless someone else would like to do it. Jeff, it'd be great if you could do some or all of the New Hampshire game to give Rob a break.

Connection is finally working for Syracuse game.

Baker still pitching, 1-0 Braves (who scored their run in the second). Langerhans doubles. Adams throws out the next hitter. Dave Nilsson (another blast from the past)walks on 4 pitches. Charles Thomas (who grounded out to second baseman Glenn Williams first time up)gets to a 1-0 count and the connection fades out.

Mike Green - Sunday, May 09 2004 @ 03:05 PM EDT (#15571) #
Top 7: F-Cats at the plate. Umbria strikes out on 3 pitches. Reading top prospect Gavin Floyd is on the mound. Justin Singleton, working the count just like his daddy, goes to 3-2 and grounds out to second. Tyrell Godwin, following Singleton's good example, goes to 3-2, fouls off a pitch and then reaches on an error by the second baseman (ground ball up the middle, second baseman tries to backhand under pressure due to Godwin's speed). Godwin steals second, his 11th steal of the season. There is no throw. Danny Solano pops out to third.

2-1 F-Cats going to the bottom of 7.
Mike Green - Sunday, May 09 2004 @ 03:12 PM EDT (#15572) #
Bottom of 7 in double A Reading. Brandon League in to pitch.

Aaron Hill makes a great play. Speedy Miguel Quintana hits a shot. Hill dives and makes the stop and then throws Quintana out. League strikes out Jacobsen on a 97 mph fastball. Danny Gonzalez grounds a ball under first baseman Logan's glove for a single. Scott Youngbauer pops up to Hill.

2-1 F-Cats after 7.
Mike Green - Sunday, May 09 2004 @ 03:15 PM EDT (#15573) #
On the out-of-town scoreboard, Dunedin trails 5-3 after 6, and Syracuse trails 2-0 after 4.
Mike Green - Sunday, May 09 2004 @ 03:26 PM EDT (#15574) #
Top of 8:

Lefthander Ude Brito in to pitch for Reading. Dominic Rich works the count to 3-2 (smile Mike Barnett) and walks. JFG doubles over left-fielder Deschaine's head; Rich stops at third. Matt Logan singles to right and drives in 1, and advances to second on right fielder. Aaron Hill singles; Logan to third. Stubby Clapp grounds a single to right; Aaron Hill moves to third.

Still nobody out and 3 runs in. Ude Brito out, Joel Hernandez in to pitch.

Jeff, I've got to go soon. Let me know when you can take it back.

...Umbria flies out to right. Hill holds, but Clapp moves up to second. Justin Singleton hits a sac fly to left. Tyrell Godwin also works the count, but grounds out to second.

NH scores 4, 6-1 middle of 8.

Mike Green - Sunday, May 09 2004 @ 03:36 PM EDT (#15578) #
Thanks, Jeff. I have some thoughts about this game. Aaron Hill seems to have adapted to double A; his power will return, and once that happens, he'll be close to major league ready. I'd estimate his ETA as June 05.

Gustavo Chacin was very impressive, and has been so far this season after a good winter ball season. Jabonoso, who was high on Chacin, was right. He's an unheralded prospect.

Had McGowan gone to college, last year would have been his junior draft year. So instead of facing short-season batters like the '03 class were he was facing Hi A & AA batters. League is in the same situation this year.
_Steve Z - Sunday, May 09 2004 @ 05:33 PM EDT (#15588) #
Beyond the compelling story about Gil Patterson's Mom, Bob Elliott's column today included an interesting note about the Jays' upcoming draft strategy:

The Blue Jays scouting department sent out a memo in February telling scouts to concentrate on collegians and not to worry about high-schoolers in preparation for the June draft. No surprise.

This week, a memo went out asking for scouts to make sure that they turned in high school players.

This left the Jays' amateur scouts scrambling. Instead of heading north, they were asked to head south.

Believe it or not, current Jays scouts have contacted at least three ex-Toronto scouts asking for help on the best high school prospects for this June's draft.

Hey Batters Box minor league fans !

A team with one of the top records in all of baseball is playing today. The game starts at 6pm. I am unavailable but I am sure we have some great fans who can jump in and do the Play by Play for us.

Charleston ,WV is playing Lakewood and you can hear them while you transscribe the game for us.

You can hear the game through the Lakewood broadcast. COMN for link.

MatO: I don't think you should get too worried about McGowan yet. Why? (1) most scouts rate him very highly; (2) until the last week, he's been effective this year; (3) he's only 22 (I think). It can take time for talented players to blossom--eg Rios; (4) his pre-2004 minor league numbers are very solid. 391 IP, 366 H, 177 BB, 400 K, only 15 HR allowed.

At least he gave us a choice... given the source, I'm leaning towards "not" on the whole story.

If this were the case, why would they trust the information they received at all?

I'm telling you, the very worst thing about the traditional scouting approach is that everybody cribs from everybody else, and everybody is sharing information all the time. Enough to drive you insane.
