Minor League Notes -- torturing myself

I like to keep track of "what could have been."  It's unhealthy.  I look back at the life I've lived much more than how I want to live the rest of it.  Anyway, so it is with baseball.  I follow guys the PBC traded away, and now I can also follow guys we could have traded for.  It seems pretty certain that we could have had Phil Coke and George Kontos instead of Karstens (vomit) and McCutchen.

This post is obviously ill-timed and will probably be ignored, but just because we made a good trade doesn't mean everything else in the world stopped.

George Kontos 1-hit (our crappy) Altoona Curve tonight.  He fanned 13 and walked only one.

I'm one of the few that thought Coke was interesting, and I'll slap a quarter down right now and bet he's in NY this year. Small sample but since moving to the bullpen he's given up 1 hit in two appearances and whiffed 3 in 3 innings.

Bryan Bullington is still giving up runs, but in Buffalo he's struck out 20 and walked only 2 in 16 innings.  In two relief appearances covering 7 innings he's struck out 10 and walked 1.  He may never amount to anything, but I still don't understand why we didn't exhaust all possibilities with him.

And Todd Redmond.
