FCL happenings

Recommended Posts

In the completion of yesterday’s Orange vs. Black game, Black was leading 3-1 heading to the final inning.  For sone reason, they allowed Black reliever Orlando Fulgencio to throw a 10-run inning without ever removing him from the game.  Single, walk, passed ball, ground out, triple, error, stolen base, hit by pitch, wild pitch, single, single, wild pitch, wild pitch, walk, homer, single, wild pitch, pop out, single, ground out.   

That’s cruel and unusual punishment if you ask me.

No place has everything.  All in all, the DMV has a lot to offer and is a pretty good place to live, IMO.

You're right, no place has everything.  It does have a lot to offer but I'm pretty sure I'd be just as fine, if not happier, in a lot of other places.

After the third wild pitch I'd just start tossing them up there underhand.

With all the promotions, I hope Moises Ramirez joins Mayo at Delmarva. He's having one of the better offensive numbers at the FCL.

He’s injured I believe.

"The Ballad of Will Cunnane"

(Had to look this up on Baseball Reference to confirm my memory)

Will Cunnane was a Rule 5 player on the Padres in 1997. Going into May 16 of that year, he was sporting a 2.63 ERA through his first 10 games spanning 13 2/3 innings. 

I was watching the game on TV. The Cubs quickly jumped all over Padres starter Tim Worrell on a windy day, not ideal, as their bullpen was gassed. In comes poor Will Cunnane, who they left in for 3.2 brutal innings in which he got bashed for 10 runs on 11 hits and a walk. Threw 76 pitches. After every batter, I remember Will looking into the dugout with a "you can come get me now" look. And Bruce Bochy would be tying his shoes, looking at the scorecard, opening a piece of gum, completely avoiding him. 

Cunnane left that game with a 7.27 ERA. Didn't seem to affect him too badly, he only allowed two runs in his next 14 innings.

I can only imagine Orlando Fulgencio looking over......

PS: As I'm writing this, I'm watching Austin Wynns pitch in  16-2 game through 8 innings. Time to get my Rum on.
