    Jameson Taillon Live Report: 5/4/12

    Jameson Taillon and the Bradenton Marauders played the Tampa Yankees at classic Legends Field Friday night. Following are my notes regarding Taillon’s performance (since he was easily the most interesting of the players involved in the game). Overall, Taillon had a very good night. He ended up pitching 6 innings, throwing 77...

    Bradenton Marauders Game Recap 8/28/11

    When I arrived at McKechnie Field for the Bradenton Marauders vs. St. Lucie Mets game this evening, I noted this could be a very high scoring game due to the strong wind blowing straight out to center field. I was correct that the game ended up being high scoring, and it was...

    GCL Pirates Recap 8/25/11 – Luis Heredia Start

    Luis Heredia most likely pitched his last game of his first professional season today with the Gulf Coast League Pirates. I liked what I saw from him even though his pitching line didn’t look too great. In 3 innings, he threw 46 pitches with 31 strikes, a very healthy ratio that was...

    GCL Pirates Recap 8/13 – Luis Heredia Start

    Today, I went to watch the Pirates’ Gulf Coast League game, mainly to watch Luis Heredia, the now-17-year old Pirates’ prized pitcher. I left the game impressed with the display of offense I saw from the Baby Bucs. Heredia had mixed results. His first pitch of the game resulted in a perfect...

    Bradenton Marauders Game Recap: 7/14/11

    Tonight's Bradenton Marauders vs. Dunedin Blue Jays game belonged to the starting pitchers. Ross Ohlendorf made his first rehab assignment for the Marauders and pitched very well. He had pin-point accuracy with his fastball, which sat at 90-91 MPH. As the game moved on, he worked a bit on his curve which...

    Bradenton Marauders Game Report: 7/13/11

    Who has the most control over a baseball game? The manager? The pitcher? The batters? Nope, it's the man behind the catcher, the home plate umpire. At tonight's Bradenton vs. Dunedin game, the umpire liked two kinds of pitches: ones where the catcher did not need to move his glove an inch...
