32 game on-base streak for Sheets.

As Cirensica

That Madrigal’s homer was his 3rd in 528 minor league PAs. But that’s not his game, his game is an impressive 5.8% K rate, and his current 366/431/480. With his eye-bat coordination, power has a chance to develop later. Can’t wait to see him in the bigs

lil jimmy

Can you wait till next May?

As Cirensica

I can…

Greg Nix

His K rate is actually below 3%. Even better!


Pretty, prettyyy, prettyyyyyyyyy stoked about Madrigal. 

As Cirensica

I quoted his overall K% for his career in the minors


Does anyone know if there’s a place online to see pitching probables for the Dash? I recently relocated to VA and they’re going to be in Salem/Lynchburg all week. Psyched to catch a few games – probably 2 or 3 – and will hopefully decide which ones based on who’s throwing. I looked around on the team site but don’t see any probables. Might have just missed it, and I’ll search some more, but if anyone knows this offhand, much appreciated. 


Update: found this, for anyone’s future reference. Full minor leagues schedule with probables through Wednesday. You can sort by class. 



Bryan Ramos’ hit was a dinger


It’s time for Robert and Mercedes now. Robert for his overall play, Mercedes for his bat. Try them just in case they need adjustment time. And start trying to season anyone you think will be apart of the plan for 2020. You have to crawl before you can walk.


From the W-S twitter, Stiever’s nine strike outs. Hood for what ails ya:
