AZ Parallel League

It's Burke's Law

LHP (ex-OF) Kyler Burke threw three innings of no run/no hit ball with five strikeouts and Jeimer Candelario and Dan Vogelbach cracked back-to-back RBI singles in the top of the 8th to tie the game at 3-3, but the Mariners pushed across a run in the bottom of the 8th to take back the lead and added three more in a tack-on 9th to defeat the Cubs 7-3 in AZ Instructional League action this afternoon at Mariners Field #2 at the Peoria Sports Complex in Peoria, AZ.

  • As long as Maddon uses him against RH he is good. Against LH - not so much.

    His recent HR's obviously have not been great pitches.

    So, let's just say my personal confidence in the guy is not there yet.

  • not that I'm agreeing with E-Man in anyway here, but Warren's FIP and peripherals are not really good (5.20 FIP/5.19 BB/9/.128 BABIP), although his actual results are a lot better. Well until today...

    Trade was also to make room for Zobrist and it'll be a few years before we can really judge it.

  • Eventually, the Maddon "play everyone everywhere" thing was going to create a problem.

  • This ump blows.

  • Adam Warren who is 3-1 with a 2.08 ERA and a 1.04 WHIP, and Castro who is hitting 269/303/415?

  • That Molina with the arm out thing was ridiculous and blatant. Wonder if he can get fined for that

  • Looks like the Cubs got short end of the Castro Warren deal so far. He is atrocious. Even in games with huge leads he sucks ass.

    Wonder what they saw in him? Maybe he is a better starter? Ugh!

  • Bucknor tried to turn a 4-pitch walk to LaStella into an interesting AB, but LaStella prevailed.

  • ~shrug~ he's CB Bucknor, he's usually awful.

    But today he called 2 pitches balls that really looked like strikes, one looked particularly obvious. Even Arrieta jawed at him and that's rare for Arrieta. He also didn't bother to ask anyone or notice Molina clearly reaching his arm out to get hit intentionally.

  • Lastella not having much of one either (diving stop notwithstanding but should have been unnecessary if he made earlier play).

    Rob G. 39 min 36 sec ago view
  • What's wrong with his strike zone? Just inconsistent?

    Rob Richardson 47 min 53 sec ago view
  • CB Bucknor not having a good day....

    also this...

    Jesse Rogers [email protected]  Yeah, there was plenty of chatter before the game about home plate ump today. Knew he would be a factor.
