Just a couple of videos/links here. Kyle Crick pitched in an unofficial “B” game this morning against the Cubs. After a shaky first, he struck out phenoms Jorge Soler and Kris Bryant in his second frame. Now the kid is getting some more love.
Speaking of pitching prospects, Alex Pavlovic did an interview with catcher Jeff Arnold, and asked him about the gang he caught in San Jose last year. Some repeat information here, but still interesting.
I find it kind of funny that Pavs thought he came up with this grand idea to get all the golden nuggets from Arnold… Conner Pennfold already interviewed the backstop last summer, gaining a ton of knowledge about guys like Escobar, Blach, Crick and company in the process. Check the video out on his site, Giant Potential, linked to the right. I definitely don’t want to take anything away from Arnold, who’s a pretty impressive guy, and a very good defensive catcher. I just find it ironic that bloggers don’t seem to ever get the credit.
Other tidbits: Tim Hudson and Tim Lincecum pitched pretty well in their 2014 debuts, the video clips are below. And Ehire Adrianza continues to get rave reviews. He’s off to a fast start, let’s hope it’s the real deal!
That’s all for tonight, from RAINY northern California! Have a good evening all.
