He was pulled after 5 innings for Jason Michaels – he’s going to the Phillies – I’m shocked, SHOCKED.
So far, it’s 3 A ball guys and a PTBNL. “TOP” prospects (cheap) including Zack Cosart, Jonathan Singleton and Josh Zeid. I was kind of surprised that Domonic Brown wasn’t included – but he makes Clank look like Michael Bourn out there. Wonder if these A ball “top prospects” are any better than Astros “top” prospects Mier, Villar and DeShields – who, by the way, are awful.
I like how the Chron guys are saying stuff like how they think those A ball guys will be in the majors next year. Putting a baseball players on a major league field doesn’t make them major league quality players (see Jason Smith). Promoting guys who don’t deserve promotions and can’t hit low A pitching doesn’t prove that your minor league system is getting better.
Not sure who will go next, Bourn, Barmes, Wandy or Myers, but hey we lost with em and we can lose without em as the old saying goes.
I wish Hunter the best in Philly – hopefully, he’ll win a Ring there – goodness knows Ed Wade’s done his best to keep Philly at the top of the NL since he’s come to Houston. And they didn’t even have to pay him.
Poor Jordan Lyles pitched 6 good innings, giving up only 2 runs – was pulled after 6 innings/78 pitches – not sure why.
Bet he wished it was him going to Philly. And Sanchez is an awful defensive third baseman.
