Pitcher Worries

April 22, Game 14
Durham Bulls 4; Lehigh Valley IronPigs 8
Wrap, Box

Anthony Banda has only had four appearances, but his game score trend is disturbing (50 is "average"). Last night it was either strike 'em out or give up a solid hit. I only recall one easy infield ground ball. No doubt he's a talented guy, but here's hoping he gets into a rhythm.

Otherwise, Lehigh Valley's 22-year-old Enyel De Los Santos was an uncomfortable pleasure to watch. Assuming he doesn't blow out his arm along the way, he's going to be a star.

Grumble of the day:

The Bulls hometown newspaper, the Durham Herald-Sun, has not run a single game story since opening day. Must be awfully lonely up there in the press box. Has anyone else seen any stories that were not re-writes of the Bulls' own press releases?

You'd think they'd at least mention the hospitalization of Danny Farquhar who pitched in 32 games for the Bulls. The Tampa Bay Times had a nice piece.
