  1. -Arrieta picked up a W in Milwaukee last night, striking out 8 and giving up 2 runs in 8 strong IP. He improves to 5-4 on the year with a 3.60 ERA. At the plate, he's 3-for-22 (.136) with an RBI. His next scheduled start will be Friday night against the Dodgers at Chavez Ravine. -Cashner picked up a W last night as well, in Denver. He struck out 5 and gave up 5 earned runs in 5 IP to improve to 5-2 on the year while his ERA ticked up a bit to 4.55. Being that it was in an NL park, he was in the lineup. He went 0-3, but reached on a fielder's choice on a bunt and later scored. His next start is at home against the Giants on Friday. -Carpenter has 2 HR and 5 RBI has part of his current 3-game hit streak. He's now hitting .222 with 7 HR, 17 RBI and a .724 OPS. -Cron had a double and 2 RBI in his Major League debut for the Diamondbacks. -Holaday went 0-3 in his season debut after being recalled by the Marlins. -Ferrell is 4 games into his rehab stint in the Marlins' farm system, having given up 1 run in 4 appearances between Double-A Jacksonville and Triple-A New Orleans.
  2. -Jantzen Witte has 5 RBI in his last three games for Triple-A Pawtucket (Red Sox), where he's now hitting .316 with 1 HR and 17 RBI through 30 games. -Durbin Feltman has rebounded nicely after a rough stretch in early May skyrocketed his ERA at Double-A Portland (Red Sox) to 11.00. In his last 8.1 IP, he's given up just 4 hits and 1 earned run. He's now 1-1 with a 6.23 ERA through 15 relief appearances. -Jerrick Suiter has a 4-game hit streak going for Double-A Altoona (Pirates), where he's now hitting .265 with 1 HR and 22 RBI though 46 games. -Evan Skoug is 5-for-10 with 2 HR and 6 RBI in his last two games for Advanced-A Winston Salem (White Sox), where he's now hitting .250 with those 2 bombs, 9 total RBI and a .915 OPS through 8 games since his promotion. -Luken Baker went deep last night for Advanced-A Palm Beach (Cardinals), where he's now hitting .258 with 3 HR, 19 RBI and .744 OPS through 42 games.
  3. Our current 97: Christian Applewhite A few memorable 97s: Tommy Blake Royal West Chris Bradley (before he switched to #56 as a senior) Beating SMU, 21-18, on November 20, 1997 - the Frogs' lone win of Pat Sullivan's final season kept the Ponies out of what would've been their first bowl game since the Death Penalty And a few bonus 97s: La'Roi Glover OK Computer dropped on June 16, 1997 - and we're all fitter, happier, more productive for it
  4. A bit of a tangent, but Cron is not the only player making his debut in this weekend's Arizona/San Francisco series. Also breaking into the bigs is Giants' outfielder Mike Yastrzemski. Yes, he is Yaz's grandson.
  5. Our current 98: Adam Plant A few memorable 98s: Jerry Hughes Greg Townsend The Rose Bowl was GP's 98th career victory The previously-mentioned 1998 Sun Bowl -Another play I can't find a video or a photo of, but Reggie Harrell scored a 98-yard touchdown on a pass he caught from Brandon Hassell at Arizona in 2003. The Frogs won that game by the Ticket-friendly score of 13-10 on a Nick Browne field goal in overtime. It was John Mackovic's last game as Arizona's head coach. ...and a bonus 98: The Mavs' 1998 NBA Draft night haul - much maligned locally at the time.
  6. Kevin Cron got The Call! SBNation: Diamondbacks promote 1B prospect Cron
  7. Our current 99: Soni Misi A few memorable Frog 99s: Jeremy Breedlove Chance McCarty Braylon "It's already been" Broughton Tevin Lawson KaVontae Turpin's 99-yard kickoff return for a TD against OU last year - I searched and searched and searched for a photo or video, but Quincy Butler had a 99-yard pick six against Southern Miss in 2004. If memory serves me correct, he didn't have a clear path to the endzone - he had to cut back several times and broke multiple tackles before finally finding paydirt. Play seemed like it took minutes. ...and a bonus 99: Tony Dorsett's NFL record 99-yard TD run on Monday Night Football in 1983
  8. Yep. Really, really uncomfortable and scary - but so well done.
  9. As of today, May 20th, we are 60% of the way through the offseason.
  10. Good read from ESPN about Collier growing up in Munday: Gas station burritos and one stoplight: Seahawks rookie rises from tiny hometown
  11. -Kevin Cron is on a tear again. In his last three games for Triple-A Reno (D'Backs), he's 8-for-12 with 3 walks, 3 doubles, 4 home runs and 11 RBI. For the year, he's now hitting .327 with 18 HR (leads all of minor-league baseball), 52 RBI and a 1.197 OPS. Call him up already! -Jantzen Witte hit his first Triple-A home run of the year last night for Pawtucket (Red Sox), where he's now hitting .325 in 23 games since being promoted.
  12. With Australians going to the polls tomorrow, let's check in on the political climate Down Under: Deadspin: Why Australians are tweeting about their prime minister shitting his pants at McDonald's
  13. -Arrieta has given up a combined 8 earned runs across his last two starts. Two L's drop him to 4-4 on the year with a 4.02 ERA. Next start is Monday back in the formerly friendly confines against the Cubbies. -Cashner has had two good starts in a row - 12 total IP, 12 total K, just 3 hits and just 3 BB...against the Red Sox & Yankees, no less. But he got a no-decision and a loss. He's now 4-2 with a 4.10 ERA, next start scheduled for Tuesday night against the Yankees in Bal'merr. -Carpenter is 3-for-20 over the past week, which has dropped him down below the Mendoza Line -Riley Ferrell has started his rehab assignment with the Marlins' Double-AA affiliate, the Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp. He had a perfect inning of relief with a strikeout in his debut.
  14. Some crackpot politician is voicing his support for Trump's cartoonish Space Force idea by playing up the dangers of Space Pirates: The Hill: Senator warns 'Space Force' is needed to prevent space pirates
  15. I thought this season was great. The whole storyline with Jonah running for president was hilarious. Barry is the best show on HBO right now.
  16. I saw a tweet this morning indicating that Denzel Johnson & Ranthony Texada have signed with the Ottawa RedBlacks of the CFL.
  17. PROMOTION: After hitting .164 through 20 games at Class A Kannapolis, Evan Skoug was promoted by the White Sox organization to Advanced A Winston-Salem. Through 2 games, he's 0-for-3 but with 3 walks. -Jantzen Witte is 11-for-25 during his current 6-game hitting streak for Triple-A Pawtucket (Red Sox), where he's now hitting .329 with 8 doubles through 19 games. -Jason Coats has gone deep 4 times in his last 10 games for Triple-A Durham (Rays), where he's raised his average to .228 and now has 6 HRs and 10 RBI through 23 games.
  18. At first, I thought Nowell was a TE project. After watching his film, he's all WR.
  19. We hadn't had a walk-off bomb in 9 years, now we've got two in less than 24 hours. GO FROGS!!!
  20. Rumor has it Baldwin will not be on scholarship until January.
  21. -Arrieta tallied 7 K's in 6 IP last time out, and took a no-decision to remain 4-2 on the year while he shaved his ERA down to 3.40. His next start is Friday night against the Royals in Kansas City. -Cashner tallied 8 K's in 4 IP last time out and also took a no-decision. He's still 4-1 on the year, with a 4.71 ERA. He's on the hill for the O's tonight at home against the Red Sox. -Carpenter has 6 hits in his last 4 games, including a solo bomb on Monday. He's now hitting .212 with 4 HR, 8 RBI and a .691 OPS.
  22. Beto is learning quickly that running against 20+ fellow Democrats is much, much different than running against Ted Cruz. I really don't see him making much of a dent in this primary process once things really get going - although really, what do I know? I never figured a longtime Clinton donor would become the Republican messiah, but here we are.
