Lamb's back

1 inning pitched for AZL Royals last night 2Ks. Some good news prospect wise

Couple of observations from NWA game 6-16-10

9
  1. Crow was not as bad as his line indicates. Seratteli played 3rd and cost him several runs not making a routine play.
  2. Crow appears to be working on some offspeed stuff. Slider looked good. Looked like he was throwing a changeup and did so on most batters until he got a strike with it.
  3. Can't give any accurate speeds-gun must have been off. Highest I saw was 87 with a low of 69
  4. D Robinson had a nice game double and a triple
  5. Something is up with Moose. He didn't play and was walking around with a visable limp.

2009 Draft Order

So I was trying to figure out where the Royals will draft next year. They seem to have a better record than 10 other teams. So that would lead us to drafting 11th. But since the Nats didn't sign...
