    Savannah Championship Series

    Goeddel off to a rocky start. They are hitting the ball hard and far -- for 5 runs through 2 innings. A couple outs were drives up against the wall, one went over it 420 feet. Error by Tovar didn't help much.

    Sandy Alderson in the house tonight, 4 rows in front of me. I'll be sure to pass along everything thats been discussed on this board.

So I stand by the notion that we need to get better, and in doing so we need to set concrete goals for ourselves so that we have sort of specific conversations among ourselves about how we're going to get there." -- Mr. Alderson

    Aderlin just hit a moon shot--I mean it HIT the moon, and landed 410 feet from home plate. It's cool in Sav. tonight w no humidity, maybe the ball is travelling farther.

    You'll be happy to know that after discussing Reyes' contract, Citi Field dimensions, whether or not to tender Pelfrey and/or Pagan, and if Warthan will return in 2012, SA said, "Things can always turn around next year." So there you have it.

    Gnats staging a comeback. Aderlin smoked a ball - for a single. Bases loaded, 7-5, no outs. Ceciliani with a bases loaded triple. That even got SA on his feet!

    I think Goeddel will not come back in the game.

    Um. If you are interested he just got up and came back, I presume to take a leak.

    Argh, Herbert pitching now. Is not sharp. Run scored on a single to CF. DC's throw was high and 10 feet wide.

    Anything else on this conversation? Was he answering your questions with at least semi non cryptic responses? I'd imagine he wouldn't have to be too tight lipped about thinking about changing dimensions because it has no effect on any other team.
