I think Adam has a shot at the Cishek role.  sixth or seventh inning guy, with a little upside if those above are hurt or tired.

I think we will get better performance out of Mills than we did out of Montgomery.

Arizona Phil has velocities from yesterday.

Mekkes topped out at 96
Norwood 96-99
I forgot about Cotton. He looked good as well.
He had Adam at 91-93 which I have a hard time believing. Dude was blowing his 4 seamer by people.

David Ross out again Sunday with what Jordan Bastain described as intestinal turmoil.

Ross was fired several days ago. The flu is just a cover up

I guess mlb.tv only has the Dodgers feed today? Even though the game is on Marquee..

I was told by Directv today that Marquee only available to Directv subscribers...in Illinois.

Not available elsewhere as part of Directv Sports Package or any other package.

Iím figuring will be available outside Illinois at some point but clear that Marquee hasnít fully got their act together at this stage.

You need MLB.TV.

I watched last night in crystal clear in East Tennessee.

Caratini goes yard.

He'd be a damn fine starting catcher for somebody.

thanks, blue.  I'd think if Mekkes could be consistently in the 92-94 range, topping at 96 on good days, he'd have a shot at an interesting future.  We've gotten the big, long-stride, release-point-makes-his-fastball-better-than-the-velocity-would-suggest kind of stuff.  But if pitch-lab and mechanical-tweaks and physical-maturation were to have actual velocity up with a lot of 93-95 and sometimes even more, that could be VERY sweet. 

Do you think Cotton has velocity up with those kinds of guys?  (Not Norwood-fast, but mid-90's capacity, if used as a let-it-rip reliever?)

I think you let Cotton play out as a starter this year at Iowa.

Mekkes had some nice movement on his fastball. The Cubs really do have a bunch of guys to throw at the bullpen to figure it out.

Norwood just reminds of Farnsworth, the stuff just work together for some reason. The Cubs prospects guys are saying it is spider control.

Anybody watch todayís game?  I had to watch Creighton dismantle another top 25 team.

Watching reruns from a few years ago? 

Man Tennessee has a NET rating of 65. The 10th best team in the Big East has a 72. Playing in the SEC must be nice.
