    News from Dunedin

    I hope you don't mind me starting a new thread...sometimes these reports can get lost in the prospects thread.

    News from the complex today.

    Latos sucks... probably gave up 8 hits in a row in an inter- squad game along with showing some attitude.

    Travis hit the ball hard every at bat and made a great play in the hole to get an out. Gurriel is a physical specimen and hit a line drive single in the only at bat I saw. SRF dominated in his 3 innings ( there were 2 inter squad games on today)

    Talked to Christian Williams father who said his son would be in Lansing along with Biggio, Bichette, Vlady and Woodman. Will have to plan a trip to Lansing.

    Pentecost will start at 1st in Dunedin and according to Charlie Wilson, so will T.J Zeuch

    All the full season players leave tomorrow. I'll go again on Monday to see if they've started extended spring.

    Lansing is going to be fun this year. First two games of their season are on MiLB.TV as well. Next Thursday and Friday!

    Do you mean Pentecost will be playing 1B or just that he's starting the season at Dunedin?

    Thanks for the report!

    Ugh Latos is not the answer. We will desperately need some additional depth.

    A bit of a surprise they are moving Zeuch to 1B... but hey, they know what they are doing.

    Sorry for the confusion. Pentecost will start at 1st base in Dunedin.
    Zeuch will pitch for Dunedin this year...moving up quickly.

    Missed Dunedin's first game...a loss to Clearwater as I was at the Trop for the Jays game. As you probably saw for yourself, Tulo and Martin look lost at the plate...hope they break out soon. Morales blast was a no doubter the moment it left the bat.
    I would guess that more than half the people there ( there weren't many) were Jays fans. Nice that the attendance is so low, we were able to sit anywhere. For today's game and tomorrows, the total cost of my tickets was $22.11. ..$15 tonight (senior special every Thurs) and a promo every Friday from 7-Eleven...3rd deck tickets for $7.11. Of course, I won't be sitting in the 3rd deck. Gotta love it I hope they never leave the Trop.
    Will be at the Dunedin games on Sat and Sun.

    Really? TheScore had something saying it was $121 so that is why I said that number. I thought it was ridiculously low so 6500 sounds a lot more normal.

    Good news and bad from the Dunedin Jays tonight.

    Good news- Pentecost with a homer and a line double to left plus stellar defence at first..made a nice play going to his left to prevent a double.
    Ryan Cook with a strong 3 innings in relief.
    Free tickets to the game and free movie tickets when the baby Jays win on a Saturday.

    Bad news- Zeuch left at the top of the second before he even faced a batter after a good first inning. The only positive I can offer is that he didn't seem to be in any distress. Hope it's nothing serious.
