In today Mike Berardino's Sun-Sentinal column, he has a good profile of the talent left in Double "A" not very promising. After losing C Josh Willingham to a knee injury last week and recent call-ups. The Marlins top talent is no longer in Carolina instead look a little north of broward county to palm county's Jupiter Hammerheads. Where at least 4 to 5 kids will be on the Marlins radar next year for help. here's a couple of names :thumbup

1.RHP Trevor Hutchinson 9-2 with a 2.88 ERA (leads the staff in wins).
2.RHP Denny Bautista 8-4 with a 3.18 ERA (leads the staff in K's 77).
3.RHP Nic Ungs 5-3 with 6 to 1 K's/BB ratio (leads the staff in ERA 1.85)
4. 1B Jason Stokes batting .267 with 67 RBI and 11 HR(both leads the team)
5. LHP Chris Key 3-0 with a 1.07 ERA with 5BB in 33innings (top lefty on the club and bullpen)


*side note (Low Single A) OF J. Hermida(Marlins top selection last year) appears to finally living up to the hype batting .287 71H 4HR 26RBI 7SB(nice) good all-around stats for the kid

He has always been called a "guess hitter" - apparently he hasn't been guessing correctly lately... As for Bump, a 4.38 ERA in AAA is not bad - AAA is turning more into an offensive-happy league where pitchers get thrown around. AA is now considered a better ML indicator than AAA, and hopefully Nate's recent track record will get him into the majors soon.

isnt the PCL considered a 'launching pad' of some sorts?

Aren't most PCL teams' ballparks at higher elevations ala Coors Field? Of course AAA will be a launching pad, with so many injuries to pitchers in the major leagues and the callups thta ensue, the pitching has been depleted.

What the hell happened to Adrian Gonzalez!?
what happened with him is that he sucks and he always will. I cant believe we got Agon 1st. we should have went with a hard throwing pitcher. hes just 20 but he fell from AAA to AA he sucks at AA. He reminds me of a MLB version of a 2003 paul konerko.. but worse.

Well if he's a guess hitter than there's a good chance is not just a slump. The only good guess hitter I know of is Kevin Millar.

BTW: Hutchinson is awsome I hope we could have signed him last year he would have beign in AA.

Why would they do that? His probably their future closer, but if we offer Castillo then maybe it could happen. Anderson cost them the game today.
