A short time ago, I was looking at Rowdy's struggles and noticed the FG batted ball data showed him to be pulling the ball far less than he did at his past few minor league stops.

When we discussed Leblebijian yesterday, I checked FG and the same pattern emerged. Checked the other 2 names on the IL leaderboard (Smith and Parmley) and both of them are pulling less this year as well.

Gerry ... any news on Pentecost's trip to the 7 day DL ?

No news on Pentecost. I don't bug Jays people for minor injuries or I would be bugging them a lot. If he is still out in ten days time I will ask.

Jays drafting 2 catchers in 3 rounds makes me wonder if they don't see Pentecost as a future catcher.

Thanks Gerry ... I appreciate your detective work on our behalf and understand your not wanting to wear out your welcome with your source ... I overlooked the fact that they have been somewhat busy the last few days and might not be in the best of moods

Very strong performance by Glenn Sparkman today for New Hampshire, 5 IP, 2 H, 1 BB, 5 K, 0 runs. 2 more hits for Danny Jansen, who is looking like one of the best prospects in the organization, and Harold Ramirez also had 2 hits and is hitting .400 over his last 7 games. Maybe he's figured things out.
