Im really liking each of these summaries starting with the final score and record in the first sentence!


I continue to wish that in addition to hits and walks, strikeouts were included in the summaries of notable performances. Yesterday, for example, Suwinski had 3 in his 4 ABs. That seems very relevant given that making more consistent contact and improving his K rates was a reason he was sent down.

Wilbur Miller

Seeing an illustration today, at the BRD game, of why the Pirates drafted mostly pitchers. Just a string of Marauders’ pitchers with mediocre stuff and below avg command. Lower level pitching depth in this org is bad.
