Giants Rally to Edge Pelicans at Indian School Park

Diego Rincones blasted a two-run HR in the 1st inning and an RBI double in the 3rd, and then with their team trailing by a run with two outs in the bottom of the 9th, Fabian Pena and Dalton Combs belted back-to-back RBI doubles for the walk-off victory, as the San Jose Giants (Hi-A affiliate of the San Francisco Giants) rallied to edge the Myrtle Beach Pelicans (Cubs Hi-A affiliate) 5-4 on Field #1, and Luis Vazquez drilled a two-run single, walked, and stole a base for the Cubs, and Marco Luciano rifled a two-run double for the Greenjackets, as the South Bend Cubs (Lo-A affiliate of the Chicago Cubs) and Augusta Greenjackets (Giants Lo-A affiliate) played to a 3-3 tie on Field #2, in Cactus League Minor League Spring Training game action Wednesday afternoon at Indian School Park in Scottsdale, AZ.

Do you think Roederer opens the season at SB?

BRADSBEARD: Cole Roederer has had an impressive week at Minor League Camp and with the MLB club as well, but I think the most-likely scenario is that he stays in Mesa at EXST April-June, is assigned to Eugene on NWL Opening Day, and then (if all goes well at Eugene) gets a promotion to South Bend in mid-July or August, and then gets assigned to the AFL post-2019, and then (best case scenario) - POSSIBLY - gets to AA sometime in 2020 (although Myrtle Beach would be a lot more-likely for Opening Day 2020). And again, that's only if he continues to progress without any backsteps or setbacks.   

Thanks to PHIL and the ASS.

On another topic - looks like J-Hey is in mid-season form at the plate in camp.

ichiro goes 0/4 in his farewell game...it's been an interesting run for a guy who didn't get here til he was 27.

3089 hits...509 sb...350+ ob%...10 GG...1 MVP

M's win over the A's in 12 innings...

Eloy Jimenez deal with #whitesox is six years, $43M with two club options, but in his camp’s view, he effectively is giving up only one free-agent year. Without deal, he would have started season in AAA and stayed down until at least point when CWS would gain seven years control.

...speaking of extensions...looks like goldschmidt/cards are going to be a long-term pain the cubs ass sometime soon.

Hard to root against Goldschmidt. I remember wishing Pujols would stop being so good with the Cards. But the Cubs are now in a place where I just expect them to be better than their opposition.

MIL closer (but not their best reliever) c.knebel has gone from "tired arm" to "elbow might be a little bit torn up"

unfortunately, they've been linked to c.kimbrel lately...hopefully that doesn't happen.

5 days in a row of televised cubs games coming up (including the BOS series to end ST for the cubs)

for those that don't have mlb.tv or a cable/satelite streaming account, the Mon/Tues games vs BOS are free to stream.

Here's hoping I can actually watch some spring training games (probably while doing some light paper work).

baez finally hit a HR...

Radio crew was impressed - dead center too. Good time to get heated up.

    so if the marlins keep covid'ing it up and finish with a 2-1 record do they make the playoffs with their kickass .667% winning percentage?

    how does this circus work?

    j/k...we're not gonna get to the playoffs.

    "take off your mask while you eat/drink" indoor venues has been one of the stupidest missteps in this whole thing.  i can safely say if i've been hearing this in covid briefings at work for months that government leaders have, too.

    it's one of the most disasterous missteps we've taken during re-opening and there is little american appetite for ending it on a government or "personal responsibility" level.
