Grand Grandal

Yasmina Grandal

It would have been nice if Grandal had hit a grand slam (Then this article could be titled ‘Grand Grandal Grand Slam’). Anyway, I’m sure 2 HRs in his first 2 at bats is pretty satisfying. Switch hitting catcher Yasmani Grandal was called up by the Padres and had a very nice debut.   2 …

So Far So Good: Anthony Rizzo

Anthony Rizzo

The Cubs, in need of just about everything, called up their top hitting prospect 1B Anthony Rizzo. In 3 games at the big league level this year, Rizzo has done alright.  He has gone 3 for 11 (.273) with 1 RBI.  All this shows is that he isn’t being overwhelmed by major league pitching like …

Will Middlebrooks

2012 Debut: Jacob Turner

Jacob Turner

Detroit’s best pitching prospect has made his 2012 debut. Let’s hope Jacob Turner does a little better then his 2011 MLB attempts. Well, after one start (yesterday vs. the Cardinals) Turner did alright.  He went 5 innings, gave up 1 run, 3 Ks, and 5 BB.  A mixed bag here.  Giving up only 1 run …

Cook’n in Oakland

Ryan Cook

Oakland has had issues with their closers this year, but it looks like they have finally settled on one – Ryan Cook. Not only does he have 3 saves this week, his manager has given him the ‘official’ nod as the 9th inning guy. On the year, Cook has a tiny ERA of 0.61, a …
