Indy v Rochester 2

Just got back from the 11 a.m. "businessman's special" and I would mirror all of azibuck's comments, including the fact that I am someone who's played a lot of baseball and watches a lot of baseball, but I'm not someone to take seriously. 

The speed gun here in Roch is a MPH or two slow.  Far too many readings of 49 and 54 to be relied upon.

Pearce cannot hit an offspeed pitch.  He did manage a single though. 

Andrew McCutchon went 3-3 and got on base on a error.  Not much pop in his bat.  He came off as Nyjer-like.  I'm going to thursday and friday's games, so we'll see.

Neil Walker DH'd and Luis Cruz played 3rd.  Doesn't bode well for Neil long-term, in my opinion.  He had a single.

Daniel McCutchen pitched pretty well.  6 innings, 3 runs, 7 hits.  He throws strikes, but his velocity isn't great, and I would call his breaking stuff average.  Average today anyway.  He would get lit up in the majors right now.

Rochester has a reliever named Juan Morillo who even with Rochester's iffy gun hit 97.  He made the Indian batters look foolish. 

On a side note I sat near a woman who was at least 80.  In the first inning she almost got nailed by a pop-up foul.  For 7 innings I was somewhat concerned for her safely, as we were in a foul ball heavy area.  Then in the 7th she snared a balled up t-shirt out of the air like she was Brooks Robinson.  Remind me to never doubt my mother.
