Guillermo Quiroz' homer brought the Chiefs back from a deficit late in the game. It went to right off a reliever throwing 96-97, and is a good indication that his hand injury has healed. He's now hitting .232/.325/.425, but he might be major-league ready at the beginning of next year.

Oops. Credits to Ryan Lind and Rob who did BBRadio last night for the details on Q's homer.

Well, Ryan called the shot heard 'round Da Box, I was merely confused on how to pronounce Templet. ;)

It looks like a long college and short season year is taking a toll on Mathews and Klosterman or they're simply in a bit of a funk. Maybe Mathews could use a day or two off... He's played in almost every game for Auburn.

It's obvious that the Jays now have a lot of first base depth if you can have Hicks in the appy league batting .407 and then Anderson, Metropoulos and Cannon. I wouldn't be surprised to see Clint Johnston let go in the offseason... the Jays are going to be hard-pressed to find room in full season ball next year for all these first basemen. (Cannon, Metro in Dunedin; Anderson, Hicks in Charleston?). Or do Metro and Anderson move to the outfield? Oh wait, there is depth there too! Wow, what a good problem to have...
_Dean - Sunday, August 08 2004 @ 01:40 PM EDT (#44523) #
Marc, I disagree that having all this "strength" @ first base/left field in short season ball is a good thing as these are the positions of last resort. Thigpen may end up there as well. A glut at a premium position such as SS would be a lot better as players playing SS are generally better athletes and can adapt to another position easier, usually. I saw some footage of Metropolus this morning on the J-Zone and I don't think he will be moving from 1st/LF any time soon, looks like he is 1st to the dinner table and the last to leave.
Mike Green - Sunday, August 08 2004 @ 02:02 PM EDT (#44524) #
Overall, there's good depth at all positions in the system now. In the middle infield, one has Adams, Sequea, Hill, Rich, Cota, Tablado, Roberts, Klosterman and Hall.

It is a pleasant problem to have a glut at first base/DH. Remember to add Nick Thomas to that list.
_JohnnyS99 - Sunday, August 08 2004 @ 02:32 PM EDT (#44525) #
Didnt anyone watch the feature on the Auburn Doubledays on J-zone today? Erik Kratz seemed to put up numbers the last couple of years but finds himself in Auburn due to the catching depth in the organization, he looked in better shape then I thought, he was listed at 6-4 240, but looked rock solid.

Comn for his statistics, last year .312 at Auburn with a 411 OBP, yet his back.
Mike Green - Sunday, August 08 2004 @ 02:37 PM EDT (#44526) #
Anyone know who's starting for the Fisher-Cats tonight? It's Rosario's turn, but they might very well give him an extra day's rest.
After today's game against the Bronx Bombers, BBRadio might be the tonic.
_Rob - Sunday, August 08 2004 @ 02:54 PM EDT (#44527) #
I'd like to do some BBRadio, but the CFL is calling. I hope the Argos do better against Edmonton than the Jays did today.

Damn, the Jays wouldn't beat the AAA Edmonton team the way they're playing.
_Finn McCool - Sunday, August 08 2004 @ 03:44 PM EDT (#44528) #
Thigpen won't be playing any first base anytime soon. The jays have said repeatedly they want Thigpen to catch, and he could develope into a good offensive catcher. The only way Thigpen would play first base is if he is injured or needs a day off catching.
_Ryan Lind - Sunday, August 08 2004 @ 05:16 PM EDT (#44529) #
I had fun doing the BBRadio yesterday; I wouldn't mind doing it again...
_Dean - Sunday, August 08 2004 @ 05:48 PM EDT (#44530) #
Yeah the Jays will want Thigpen to catch, but he was also bumped from that position @ college - and yes the guy who bumped him is a potential 1st round pick but then Thigpen was taken in the 2nd round. Lots of catchers are moved as they climb the ladder, Delgado & Phelps, and 1st base/LF is usually where they go.

So I feel like posting updates again from the games. I was going to do the FisherCats game, but I can't get the NH feed to work, so I guess I'll do another Syracuse/Buffalo game.

We join the game in progress as it's 1-0 Buffalo in, I believe, the second inning. There is one out.

Howie Clark rips a ball past Buffalo 2B Brandon Phillips for Syracuse's first hit of the game. Anthony Sanders comes up and quickly falls behind 0-2 before taking the next four pitches and drawing a walk.

Jorge Sequea has runners on first and second now. He takes the first pitch for a strike, and then grounds it into a 5-4-3 double play. Announcer sounded surprised that they got Sanders so maybe it was a bad call, but none the less the inning is over.
_Ryan Lind - Sunday, August 08 2004 @ 06:50 PM EDT (#44532) #
Jhonny Peralta starts off the third inning for the Bisons. He takes the first pitch for a strike, and then whiffs on a good breaking ball. He takes the third pitch outside for a ball and then grounds one up the gut for a single. Astroturf helped that one.

Ernie Young up now. He takes the first pitch for a ball, then swings on another breaking ball from Cam Reimers. Sounds like he has a great one going today moving away from right-handers. Oops, maybe it's going too well; Reimers bounces the next pitch in the dirt and it gets away from the catcher. Peralta advances to second.

Young grounds the ball right to Adams, and he throws the runner out at first. If it wasn't for that wild pitch, the Chiefs would have had an easy double play there.

The next batter grounds out, I missed his name. Peralta still at second and now there are two outs for Raul Gonzalez. Announcers point out that Gonzalez is 9 for his last 54. Make that 9-for-55 as Gonzalez grounds the 1-0 pitch to Adams. Third straight batter to ground out to Adams. Adams throws it to Eric Crozier to end the inning.
_Ryan Lind - Sunday, August 08 2004 @ 07:00 PM EDT (#44533) #
To the bottom of the third, DH Chad Hermansen leads off for the Skychiefs. Hermansen works the count full, and then lines one into right field for a base-hit. Tim Whittaker is the catcher today, and he's up to bat now. Whittaker gets the count to 2-2 but then gets caught looking trying to work it fall. It's the second strikeout for pitcher Andrew Brown, who is making his Bisons debut today.

Anton French up now. French has played 9 games with the Skychiefs and has gotten a base-hit in all of them. French extends that streak by ripping a fastball into the gap for a double. Hermansen holds at third.

Russ Adams up with two runners in scoring in position. He swings at the first pitch and pops it up to second base. Two outs. Now it's up to Julius Matos to follow up that great at-bat. He takes the first pitch for inside for strike one, then takes the second pitch inside for ball one. The third pitch is grounded to short. Matos is thrown out at first, and two men are stranded in scoring position. Sound familiar?
_Ryan Lind - Sunday, August 08 2004 @ 07:05 PM EDT (#44534) #
In the top of the fourth, I missed who was leading off for the Bisons, because my speakers crapped out, but he smashed it off Reimers glove for what looked like a base-hit, however Julius Matos made a great play and threw out the runner at first.

Last night's hero, Sandy Martinez, is at the dish now, and he falls behind 0-2 before ripping a fastball down the 1st base line just foul. Reimers throws the next pitch outside for a ball, and then has the next pitch fouled off again by Martinez. The 1-2 pitch is a swing and a miss for Martinez, and Reimers has his 4th K of the game.

The third player (I missed his name again. :$) flies out to Anton French to end the inning. Reimers has now retired 6 batters in a row.

Sorry that I keep missing Bisons' names, but my speakers are just being crappy right now.
_Ryan Lind - Sunday, August 08 2004 @ 07:18 PM EDT (#44535) #
Crozier starts things off in the bottom of the fourth. The first at-bat by him on BBRadio! The announcers point out that Crozier was a big-time Skychief killer this year. Maybe that's why JP wanted him on his side. :)

He strick out in his first at-bat, his second at-bat coming up now...

Crozier works the count 2-2 with a few foul balls. He takes a breaking ball high to fill the count, and then fouls off a couple more. The Skychiefs are doing a great job working the counts today. Crozier takes a ball away and trots down to first.

Howie Clark up now. Heh, I just had to mention how they were working the counts; Clark swings at the first pitch and flies out to Raul Gonzalez.

Anthony Sanders, like his last at-bat, quickly falls beihnd 0-2. Brown throws a breaking ball, and Sanders hits one off the glove of Brandon Phillips. It's ruled a base-hit. Now the Chiefs have runners at the corners with one out for Jorge Sequea. Sequea had a similar situation back in the third and GIDP, and this time he grounds it to third. For some reaon, Abernathy throws it home instead of going for the double play. He gets Crozier at the plate, but the inning continues and there are runners at 1st and 2nd.

Chad Hermenasen draws a walk to load the bases for the SkyChiefs. The second walk of the inning for Brown. Tim Whittaker gets a big PA here, can the Chiefs do somethinhg with RISP?


Nope. Whittaker hits it hard, but lines it at Ryan Ludwick.

Chiefs strand the bases loaded. Again, sound familiar?
_Ryan Lind - Sunday, August 08 2004 @ 07:22 PM EDT (#44536) #
Cam Reimers begins his fifth inning of work for the SkyChiefs. He's pitching well, but getting no support. He gets ahead 1-2 to Brandon Phillips, and then gets him to fly out to Anthony Sanders. Seven batters in a row retired by Reimers.

Now he's facing Brent Abernathy. He throws two breaking balls to start the AB and gets them both over for a called strike. Then Abernathy pops it up to Eric Crozier at first. Two outs, just like that.

Jhonny Peralta up now. He lines one to the outfield, but Anthony Sanders makes a lovely running catch to send Jhonny back to the bench.

Nine in a row retired by Reimers, he's crooozin. Now if only the Chiefs could get some offense...
_Ryan Lind - Sunday, August 08 2004 @ 07:29 PM EDT (#44537) #
Andrew Brown continues an impressive debut for the Bisons. He strikes out Anton French on a nice breaking ball to bring Russ Adams to the plate.

Adams smashes one down the right field line, if it's fair it's gone, but it hooks foul at the last second. It's too bad, because Adams gets K'ed looking on the next pitch. Brown has four K's on the game, and it seems like all of them are backwards.

Great pitching duel so far, nonetheless. Julius Matos up now for the Chiefs. Gets ahead 2-1, and then smashes one down the left field line. Like in Russ Adams' at-bat, it's good enough to be a homer, but it hooks foul. The next pitch stays in fair territory, but doesn't have the distance. Matos flies out to left field to end the inning.

3-up 3-down for the Chiefs and they still trail 1-0 after 5.
_Ryan Lind - Sunday, August 08 2004 @ 07:38 PM EDT (#44538) #
Young-Ludwick-Gonzalez up in the 6th for the Bisons.

Young was the first person to be retired on Reimers' nice little streak. He hits a couple foul balls, then takes a ball high. On the 1-2 pitch, Reimers throws that breaking ball again and strikes out Young looking. 5th K of the game for Reimers, most of them with that nice breaking ball.

Reimers falls behind 3-1 to Ludwick. All the balls have been up high. The next pitch is high again, and Reimers issues a walk, his first baserunner in quite awhile. Gonzalez grounds the ball to Adams, who can't get Ludwick at second, but throws out Raul at first.

2 out and a runner at second for Josh Bard. Bard takes a strike, then a ball, then grounds out to Adams to end the inning.

Reimers is still cruising. His streak of retired batters is over, but nobody has a hit off him since Jhonny Peralta's seeing-eye single back in the start of the third.
_Ryan Lind - Sunday, August 08 2004 @ 07:42 PM EDT (#44539) #
Andrew Brown's night is down. He pitched well, but while he didn't let up a run, he still gave up a lot of baserunners. It seems to me that Reimers has actually pitched better despite trailing 1-0.

Fernando Cabrera takes to the hill for the Bisons to face Eric Crozier, who is 0-1 with a walk.

Crozier falls behind 0-2 and then swings and misses at the third pitch. Second strikeout for him in this game. First for Cabrera.

Howie Clark mashes one to right field, but Ludwick makes a nice running catch. Anthony Sanders up now, and for the third at-bat in a row, falls behind 0-2. He has to stop doing that! He swings and misses at the third pitch to end a very quiet inning for the Skychiefs.
_Ryan Lind - Sunday, August 08 2004 @ 08:00 PM EDT (#44540) #
Heh, I feel real bad posting 10 times in a row, but I'm really enjoying this. Someone else post!

Reimers continues to work into the 7th, facing Sandy Martinez to start things off. Martinez grounds it to Crozier for the first out.

Nate Grindell up now. He fouls off the first pitch, and takes one low for a ball. He takes one inside, and then swings and misses at pitch #4. 2-2 pitch coming anddd...whiff! Make it 6 K's for Cam Reimers.

Brandon Phillips up with the bases empty and 2 outs. He takes a ball, and then fouls off three or four to make the count 1-2. Phillips takes two more balls to work the count full. 3-2 pitch is grounded past Adams for a base-hit. Only the second hit allowed by Reimers since I've done this thing.

Talley Haines begins to warm up in the Skychiefs bullpen as Brent Abernathy takes to the plate. Reimers seems to be working very slowly with the speedy Phillips at first. With the count 2-2, Reimers throws to Crozier and almost picks Phillips off. Very close play, apparantly. He throws to first again, and then finally delivers the 2-2 pitch to Abernathy. Abernathy smacks it past Sequea into the outfield. Predictably, it was a hit-and-run, and Phillips gets all the way to third.

Runners at the corners for (uh, oh) Jhonny Peralta. Peralta grounds it through a hole to score Phillips. 2-0 Bisons.

So after going about 14 batters without allowing a hit, he allows three stright to Phillips, Abernathy, and Peralta. None of the singles were hit hard, but they found holes.

Marty Pevey comes out to take the ball from Reimers, and Talley Haines takes to the mound.

Ernie Young hits another single through the hole to score Abernathy, but Jhonny Peralta is thrown out at third by Anton French. Nice play to get Peralta, but the Bisons strike again to make it 3-0 going to the bottom of the 7th.
_Ryan Lind - Sunday, August 08 2004 @ 08:07 PM EDT (#44541) #
I wish I could tell you the full finished line for Reimers, but I missed the first couple innings.

Jorge Sequea starts it off in the bottom of the seventh for the Chiefs, and strikes out. Three strikeouts already for K-machine Fernando Cabrera.

Chad Hermansen up now as David Lee warms in the Bisons' bullpen. The count gets to 2-2 before Chaddy flies out to RF Ryan Ludwig for the second out of the inning. Cabrera doing a nice job so far.

Here comes Tim Whittaker, he's 0 for 2. Cabrera is hitting about 93 MPH, and it's apparantly working as the Chiefs can't do much with it. Tim Whittaker takes a couple balls, takes a couple strikes, and then flies out to right field to end the inning.

Fernando Cabrera has sat down all 6 Skychiefs he has faced. It's starting to sound like all those missed opportunities earlier are going to bite Syracuse in the ass.
_Ryan Lind - Sunday, August 08 2004 @ 08:15 PM EDT (#44542) #
Talley Haines contnues to work to start the 8th inning. He faces Ryan Ludwick and gets behind 2-0, before Ryan bashes one off the wall. Howie Clark plays it nicely and keeps Ludwick to a single, but that's now five straight hits by the Bisons.

Raul Gonzalez up now with a man on. Raul gets ahead 2-1 before whiffing on a 74 MPH changeup by Haines to even the count. Raul then swings and misses on the next pitch for the first out, and the first batter to be retired at the plate for awhile.

Josh Bard up now. He swings and misses at the first pitch, then fouls off the second one to fall behind 0-2. The third pitch is hit high into right field, where Anthony Sanders makes the catch.

2 down now, and Sandy Martinez at the plate. The announcer points out that 7 of Martinez's last 9 hits have been homeruns. Ahhh the ole Pat Burrell approach. Martinez flies out to Sanders to end the inning.
_Ryan Lind - Sunday, August 08 2004 @ 08:22 PM EDT (#44543) #
lol, I really feel like I'm spamming now. I think that's 12 posts in a row. Oh well, it's worth it if anyone's interested in what the Skychiefs are doing.


Oh well. To the bottom of the 8th we (I) go. Fernando Cabrera's night is done after 2 innings of no-hit baseball. David Lee takes over to face Anton French.

French is looking to bunt, but fouls it back. On the next pitch he swings and grounds it to Abernathy. Abernathy makes a great running throw and tosses out French.

Now for Russ Adams. Adams swings at the first two pitches and hits them both foul. Unfortunately, the second time he does it Brent Abernathy is able to make the catch. Matos comes up and first-pitch-swinging, flies out to center field for another quick inning.

Ever since the Skychiefs left the bases loaded in the fourth, they have been sat down 13 in a row.
_Ryan Lind - Sunday, August 08 2004 @ 08:30 PM EDT (#44544) #
Haines is still pitching in the top of the 9th, but Aquilino Lopez is warming.

Nate Grindell strikes out looking for out#1.

Brandon Phillips lines one up the middle to Sequea. Terrible throw by Sequea to first, as it bounces two or three times. More mustard, Jorge! More mustard! It's ruled a hit though, and Phillips is on base once again.

Now for Brent Abernathy. Haines gets ahead 0-2 to Abernathy and then delivers a ball inside. Once again, the Skychiefs pitcher seems to slow way the hell down once Phillips gets on base. Phillips was running on the pitch, but Abernathy fouls it off. On the 1-2 pitch, and it's outside to even the count. On the 2-2 pitch, it's a high chopper to Sequea. He has to avoid Phillips, but manages to get Abernathy at 1st for out#2.

The dangerous Jhonny Peralta up now. He swings at the first pitch and grounds it to Russ Adams to end the inning.

To the bottom of the ninth we go...
Mike Green - Sunday, August 08 2004 @ 08:45 PM EDT (#44545) #

I'm here and I'll check out the Fisher Cat game if it's still on.
_Ryan Lind - Sunday, August 08 2004 @ 08:47 PM EDT (#44546) #
New pitcher on the mound for the Bisons to start the 9th: Cliff Bartosh. He has a 33/6 K/BB ratio in 28 innings. Pretty nice. Two of those walks are intentional, as well.

They brought him in because he's a lefty, and the first two batters up for the Skychiefs are Crozier and Howie Clark.

Crozier strikes out for the third time of the game, so his Skychiefs debut is as follows: 0-3 with 3 K's and a BB. Not the greatest debut, unfortunately.

Howie Clark up next to face the southpaw. He swings at the 1-1 pitch and lines it into left field for a basehit. Holy crap, finally. That's their first baserunner since...since a long time ago.

Anthony "0-2" Sanders up now with a man on and one out. He actualy takes a ball to end his streak. The count goes 1-2 before he mashes a single off Jhonny Peralta's glove. The Chiefs have something cooking. If Jorge Sequea can knock one out of the park then it's a tie game.

Jorge has had two opportunities like this one before. He had a GIDP the first time, and a FC the second time. Hopefully he can redeem himself. Well, Maybe not. Sequea strikes out on the 1-2 pitch.

It's all uip to Chad Hermansen now. The Bisons are leaving the lefty in the game, so the numbers favor the Skychiefs. Hermy gets ahead 3-0. I imagine he has the green light here. The 3-0 pitch issss.....taken for a ball.

Bases are full for Tim Whittaker. Nope, Guillermo Quiroz is coming in to pinch hit.

Ohh, we're looking to have an exciting finish here. The Bisons are going to RHP Jake Robbins to face the red-hot Quiroz, who has 3 HRs in his last 5 games.

Here we go, Bases loaded with 2 outs for Quiroz. Quiroz swings at a fastball to start the AB but fouls it. Robbins only throws about 89, so if he leaves a cookie up...

Quiroz takes the second pitch for a ball low. The third pitch is hit into the stands ... foul. Quiroz swings at the next pitch and it's a chopper to Brent Abernathy to end the game.

How fitting that the Skychiefs end this game by leaving the bases loaded.
_Ryan Lind - Sunday, August 08 2004 @ 08:51 PM EDT (#44547) #
So the skychiefs lose 3-0 and waste a great outing by Cameron Reimers. They had tons of opportunites, but could not cash the runners in. Eric Crozier goes 0-for-3 with a BB in his Skychiefs debut.

That was a lot of fun, but my ass hurts now, so I'm going to take a break, hehe.

Mike Green, the Fishercats game is over. They lost.
Mike Green - Sunday, August 08 2004 @ 08:55 PM EDT (#44548) #
The F-Cats lost 6-5, as Rosario was hit hard. The Alley-Cats lost 4-3.

Great job, Ryan. Between the runners left in scoring position and the balls hit out of the park but foul, it sounds as though this was a game where the Chiefs could very well have managed 3 or 4 runs.
_Rob - Sunday, August 08 2004 @ 09:22 PM EDT (#44549) #
I really feel like I'm spamming now. I think that's 12 posts in a row. Oh well, it's worth it if anyone's interested in what the Skychiefs are doing.

Many people are interested, and this is the best place to find out what happened, much better than the MiLB game logs if someone has "BBRadio-ed" it up. It does feel weird when you're alone in a thread, but it is definitely worth it.

Very nice work, Ryan. I think we just found our Syracuse BBRadio guy.
Looks like I'm stuck in AA, blocked from promotion. ;)

Line of the night: That was a lot of fun, but my ass hurts now, so I'm going to take a break

COMN, if you want to read, how ESPN's John Sickels answered this question.

Kevin A. asks:
I was at the Double-A All-Star Game in Bowie, Maryland, in mid-July. I saw Brandon League of the Blue Jays system allegedly throw 102, 98, and 98 mph. Is this accurate, or is the stadium's radar gun set generously? How good of a prospect is League?
