Rudy Owens 7/29/10 Video Recap

On July 29th, I saw Rudy Owens pitch for the first time during the 2010 season.  I saw Owens pitch several times in 2009, and a few of those outings can be seen in the video recaps section of the site. Owens was spectacular this time around, with excellent control and command of his pitches, pitching six innings, and allowing two runs on three hits, with one walk and nine strikeouts.  Owens carried a no-hitter in to the fifth inning,...

Hultzen was rated the number 29 prospect for the 2011 draft in Baseball America’s early look back in March. McGuire...

Leftover Photos and Videos from Spring Training

For the off-day, I figured I’d post some leftover photos and videos from Spring Training.  The photos have been uploaded to the BUCCO Fans Facebook page, and you’ve probably seen them if you’re a Facebook fan, but this is the first time that I’ve linked to them from the site.  They’re from the game I saw at McKechnie Field against the Red Sox, featuring some shots of Lastings Milledge, John...
