- Raffy is gone to the Cardinals for Alex Castellanos, who despite good numbers in AA, is not considered by most to be a major league caliber
player. He’s not yet twenty-five, but has a long swing to go with good speed, good power and a good arm. He was not among the Cardinals Top 3o Prospects, so at first blush, it appears that Ned got fleeced again, but who knows?
- I’m in Fort Wayne, Indiana at Parkview Field, which if it not the nicest minor league park I have ever seen, has to be right there with which one is the best.
- I brought my cameraman (my son-in-law) and got three nice interviews before the game. I don’t want to spoil the surprise, but if you could interview three people (maybe not all are players) on the Great Lakes Loons, who would that be? If you guessed Garret Gould, Zach Lee and John Shoemaker, you might be correct.
