4/21 Minor matters

Thomas Diamond gave up one run on three hits over six innings in Iowa’s 4-3 loss to Memphis. Brad Snyder extended his hitting streak to six games with a ninth inning solo homer. It was his 100th Minor League homer.

Brandon Guyer threw out a runner at home in the ninth to preserve Tennessee’s 6-5 win over Carolina. Starlin Castro extended his hitting streak to seven games, going 2-for-4 with a double, a homer and two RBIs. He’s hitting .406 in that streak.

Alberto Cabrera gave up six runs, three earned, on seven hits over four innings in Daytona’s 6-4 loss to Dunedin. Brett Jackson extended his hitting streak to 10 games with a triple. He’s hitting .415 in that stretch.

Justin Bour went 3-for-3 to help Peoria rally for an 8-7, 11-inning win over Kane County. Hak-Ju Lee extended his hitting streak to seven games, going 1-for-5, and Matt Cerda had two hits, including a triple.

A .406 average (aberation, I know but…), some gap power, some homerun power, good speed, good arm…hmmm, can’t Hendry just pretend he’s paying Castro the remaining Soriano salary and bring him up? Castro seems to have already outperformed Colvin and they brought him up. By the way has anybody noticed how many starts per week Colvin has been getting? I don’t think it’s as many as Lou said it would be. I’m sure the occassonal single and triple…oops TRIPLE TURNED INTO A DOUBLE has confused the addled manager into believing Soriano is coming around so he keeps playing him, that home run streak is sure to be just around the corner (yeah, right). Could be just me though.
