One game he was dominating and striking out everyone through seven innings. Meanwhile, his opponent was tossing a perfect game through seven innings. That kind of stuff happened all the time this year.

I’m not one to put any stock in pitchers wins and losses but that is still quite a remarkable feat especially when you are pitching fairly well.

Altoona had a rotation spot to fill and Navarro was the best choice. Robbie Rowland, Zack Dodson and Adrian Sampson were the other possibilities and none of them are ready to move, plus they are prospects to some degree and you wouldn’t want to rush any of them.

E-Lees-er? El-ee-ay-ser? Fred? Should we care since he’ll probably never make it to Pgh?

It kind of is as Navarro is one of the few Littlefield guys remaining in the minors.

Please tell me I am wrong !
