Daytona Game 1

Everybody sucked balls.

Daytona Game 2

Frank Del Valle struck out 4 in 6 scoreless innings. Nobody on offense scored. 


Jefferey Antigua struck out 4 in 3.1 IP. Its been a really weird year for Antigua. He had almost a strikeout per IP last year in Daytona and started this season in AA. He posted decent numbers there as well striking out 40 in 40 and then for some reason was sent all the way back down to Peoria. I blame Obama. Bijan Radenmacher was 1-3 with a RBI and BB.


Albert Almora celebrated his promotion with a HR and another hit. With Almora in the fold the Boise lineup is about as stacked as I have ever seen a Cubs affiliate. Rock Shoulders was 1-4 and hit a monster shot for his 8th HR of the year. KG was saying last night that there was no no no no no way Amaya gets top 100 consideration and I just don't see why not. There aren't that many 19 year old middle infielders with an OPS of .900 out there but whatever he's the "expert". 


Shawon Dunston was 1-3 with a walk. That's about it.
