    I'm guessing that the pitch bouncing was deliberate.
    Or he is still used to pitching from a little league mound.

    Maybe the batter hit it off the bounce.

    Scarecrow: I don't know... But some people without brains do an awful lot of talking... don't they?
    Dorothy: Yes, I guess you're right.

    Out of curiosity...is it okay for non-mods to post tweets that have images? I asked in General Questions forum as well. I posted one the other day, but would like clarification.

    "The 90 wins is about challenge. It's about changing the conversation. It's about framing questions for ourselves as to how we get there. 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

    And I don't know about you, but he looks awfully left handed in that photo, contrary to Rubin's tweet.

    Why is the draft pick signings thread closed? It's not like people are done signing.

    Probably an accident from a smart phone.

    "We have been watching and waiting, but I wouldn't say we intend to continue to do that. I think you watch and wait to try and assess a situation and act accordingly. It might involve more waiting. It might involve moving in one direction or another. We've done plenty of watching and waiting. If we can move in a particular direction, we might do that."

    I can't believe Brosher hit another HR. That's 4 in like 12 AB's. Maybe last year's 36th round pick is the power hitter we need in our farm.

    I wonder if there's any chance they could move him up to Brooklyn, or if they'll just let him mash Kingsport to bits this year and put him in Savannah next year.

    Logan Verrett is looking like a legit pitching prospect. He has a real shot at being a starter for us in 2015.
