Brian Giles should have one more hit to his credit this season. Not that it affected the outcome, but Alfredo Amezaga absolutely didn’t catch Giles’ soft liner in the top of the eighth. Also, what a strange game for Paul McAnulty: hit by a pitch, thrown out trying to advance on a popup to third base, lost his glove while chasing down a foul fly ball to left, almost hit in the on-deck circle by a drive off the bat of Josh Bard…

That’s a lot of runs for a Midwest League game.
If Khalil is out a few days, do they bring up an infielder? I guess with Robles gone and Rodriguez hurt, it’d be Stansberry?
If so, who do we ship out…Germano? I know he’d have to go thru waivers…
You cringe a LITTLE when Estes pitches? How about a LOT? I, myself, vomit.
I dotn realy understand why Gerut wasnt given a chance… Right now I think I would be satisfied with a Gerut/Hairston/Giles OF.
I didnt see Cedric Hunter at LE last night, but didnt think to ask why? With Kulbacki moving up, maybe Hunter’s moving also.
#1@Masticore317: Eh, I’d have to say Edgar Gonzalez would be the call up. Stansberry is mired in a season long slump.
