Everybody got plunked in Birmingham! What the hell’s going on down there? We’ve only got so much bubble wrap.


….and in a game where Hansen exhibited better control.


Missed the AZL game. I believe these guys are the three youngest hitters on the team and all had a hit or three:
Jose Rodriguez (turned 18 in May)
DJ Gladney (turns 18 in July)
Bryan Ramos (turned 17 in March). Ramos skipped the DSL.


Which two are down?

I think it should’ve been, “One Down, Two To Go”


Robert has 14K’s in his last 10 games


Send him down to Winston Salem
