    Yes.

    5'8" is not that ****ing uncommon.

    Pudge was maybe 5'9" Maybe like Biggio?

    Asheville has not been the easiest place for Trey Dombroski but he logged a solid enough outing tonight. The K:BB ratio is still decent so he's probably experiencing a severe case of the Asheville Effect.

    4.2 IP, 8 H (6 were doubles), ER, BB, 7 K

    I’m impressed that he gave up 6 doubles in 4.2 innings and only gave up one earned run

    Yogi Berra?
    Two of the top five catchers of all time were under 5'10".
    If Villarroel can rake the ball we will figure it out.
    Never seen many 5'5" second basemen before Altuve nor a lot of 5'11" first basemen before Bagwell.

    Bro, he tagged from 2B on a fly ball to center and scored.

    Encarnacion is a legit sleeper prospect. 70 grade speed with a decent arm and good plate discipline. Suffers from a severe lack of power but otherwise a really nice prospect. 25 steals in 50 games this season and has played all 3 OF spots plus 2B.

    Isn't Encarnacion about 50 years old?

    Is Julio Franco still hitting somewhere?

    There's been a Franny Cobos sighting. He looked like an up and comer. What happened to him over the last couple of years?

    Man, Hensely completely fell off my radar. After 2022 I thought he was going to be a breakout player for sure and really help the big league team. Now I don't even pay attention to what he's doing in the minor leagues.
