Holy Hell Alec Hansen!


It concerning he still isn’t able to go any deeper in games. I really hope he is indeed healthy.

Such a bummer. He was probably my favorite guy in the system coming into this year (just in terms of his profile and fun to follow). Hopefully just knocking off some serious rust. I’m assuming we’ll probably see him in the fall league to get some more innings (assuming health)?


From the BA Hotsheet, looks like Corey Ray (ACE program alum in Brewer system) is also making strides. Nice to see.


astrikeout sayswhat.


Alec Hansen Box Scores make Baby Jesus cry.

Not sure if this has been posted anywhere, but it sounds like Zangari may be out for the year. I think this is where you just throw your hands up and wait for next season.


Took a pitch off his hand first game in Kanny. Just awful luck.

Randy Johnson led the league in walks at ages 26,27,28. Tall guys sometimes take longer.

My comment was about the injury issues within the system, not Zangari specifically


I think this was meant for one of the Hansen WTFs.


Everyone relax about Alec Hansen. I’m honestly fine with giving this whole year a mulligan for him. If he comes out next year and is doing this, then its time to get scared. 


“If we come out next year doing this, then it’s time to get scared!”

I think you just came up with next year’s team slogan. Call Brooks Boyer.


I wonder if Alec Hansen knew what he was agreeing to when Hunter Kiel asked him if he wanted to try a “freaky Friday switcheroo.”
