    Stubbs scored from 2B on a wild pitch last night… that is some great speed. He’s also starting to hit the ball hard, a triple in each of his last two games.

    Got to expect that he and Parker will be in Dayton before too long.

    Zach Ward really needs a promotion. I’d like to see him pushed to AA.
