Andy LaRoche just got recalled from AAA today and is playing against the Padres. Hopefully he won't get jerked around again this time because Hillenbrand is terrible at third base and never was good there anyway and more importantly, start him over Nomar but with the foolish contract they gave him last winter (why sign him to a 2 year, 18.5 million dollar contract when you had Loney ready at 1b and LaRoche at 3b?), they'll probably give him the starts when he returns. :-t

The Washington Nationals 1st Round Pick Ross Detwiler (6th overall) has been promoted to the majors.

The Marlins made Brett Sinkbeil the highest-drafted player in Missouri State history when they selected him 19th overall in 2006, but his record will likely last for only a year. Detwiler could go as high as No. 2 overall to the Royals and should last no more than 10 picks at the most. Though he packs just 175 pounds on his 6-foot-4 frame, Detwiler has the leverage and whip-like arm speed to consistently deliver 92-95 mph fastballs. He also throws a hard spike curveball at 78-81 mph, and sometimes will drop his arm angle to give it more sweeping break against lefthanders. His changeup has shown improvement this spring. Detwiler hasn't been able to put on weight yet has been durable. After starring in the Cape Cod League and with Team USA last summer, he endured a trying junior season, winning just four times in his first 12 starts due to a lack of offensive and defensive support. He was finishing strong, however, striking out a career-high 14 in a mid-May start that his bullpen blew for him in the ninth inning.

He said that Maxwell was a great talent and that had he not broken his hand twice from being hit by pitches he would have been drafted sooner and higher.

Havok you know much about him?


I've actually heard he is a physical freak. He's something like 6'5 220 and could be the fastest player in baseball. They said he's way faster than Nook Logan. He actually reminds me of Bo Jackson with the size/speed combo. We'll have to see.
