    No sign of Pentecost at the complex today...hopefully he'll be catching tonight for Dunedin. Gurriel played today, not sure of his timetable or placement, although he's listed on the Dunedin roster. Will report after the game tonight.

    Ernie Whitt is still with the organization? Isn't he the guy who went off on Wilner after he got fired?

    Pentecost did not catch tonight ( DH). I wonder if he still needs more work or he may be alternating with Jansen who is on fire.Tale of 2 Boruckis tonight. First 4 innings he was lights out, striking out a ton with an incredible slider and a 92-94 mph fastball topping out at 96. Had an error behind him in the 5th and it seemed to unnerve him..got hit hard in the 5th and 6th.
    I'm really starting to like Juan Kelly..he really battles at the plate fouling off a number of pitches his second at bat before lining a double into the gap.
    Btw, Pentecost should have had better results at the plate..hit a bullet to right fielder and next at bat put one on the roof behind the bullpen just foul opposite field. Would have been one of the longest homeruns I've seen at Florida Exchange.

    They stole second twice but Romano was responsible for one of them, not holding the runner close. The game went into extra innings and I left after the ninth... Jansen came into the game to replace Max. From what I saw, he looked good behind the plate but i'm no catching expert.

    Thanks for all of these reports Spats, but tbh, it sounds like you've got it made

    Thanks for the kind words. Retirement is treating me well. I love coming down here in April to watch Dunedin Jays and extended spring.Girlfriend heads back tomorrow , so I can spend more time at the parks. Not much to watch at extended now that Pentecost has been reinstated with Dunedin and Palacios is in Lansing. I'm not familiar with some of the players from the DSL but if there's someone you can think of, let me know and I'll keep an eye out for them. Gurriel is the only one I want to watch right now.
    As for the start of the Dunedin season, other than Pentecost, it would be Juan Kelly. He never gives up an at bat..always working the pitcher. Don't how he projects however...he is short for a 1st baseman and the Jays don't need another DH type.
    Jansen is also having a great year and Biggio shows some promise. Will see Zeuch tomorrow night.

    I noticed Biggio's had a rough start to the year. You've liked what you've seen?
