Recommended Posts

We (Future Sox) now have an AZL correspondent, and she was at Fulmer's debut last night in Arizona. Read her report here, to give you a first take on Carson as a pro.

 

Welcome Carson, and welcome Kim!

I hope Seby Zavala ends up being a stud because that's a great name.

From some guy on MinorLeagueBall.com (Sickels' website):

 

In the game, Fulmer only faced 3 batters but, looked absolutely unbelievable. His opponent for his pro debut was the AZL Angels. The first batter was Chad Hinshaw who is on Rehab from AA. Hinshaw struck out swinging on a powerful fastball. The next batter, Jahmai Jones, reached base after a bad throw to first which was ruled a hit. The next at bat featured Brandon Bayardi. During this at bat, Fulmer was able to pick off Jones who inched too far off the bag. Bayardi eventually popped up and Fulmer succeeded in working a scoreless inning. Fulmer had six swing-and -misses by my count and looked dominant. He showed great command of the fastball and change-up.

Granted it's one inning, and the divisive issue was whether he was a closer or starter, so looking filthy for one inning should not be surprising. But always good to get off to a good start.

Hope he ends up as a starter. Sale/Q/Rodon/Fulmer/Johnson or Montas or Beck or FA is a great rotation. Plus I like Robertson as closer.

I really think Montas ends up as our 8th inning while Robertson is here.

Thanks for the report, Kim.

 

Thank you, as well, Carson Fulmer.

 

And anytime anybody wants to bring some of those 16 runs up north, be my guest. We sure could use some offense!

To let the pitchers know it was their turn for Tommy John?

I wish it was Tommy John, but Nardi's pitchers all lost their labrums and there was pretty much no coming back. At least tommy john gave you a chance

"Honey, have you seen my labrum?"

"Your what?"

"My labrum! I know it was here earlier, I saw it. What did you do with it?"

"What did I do with it? Find it yourself!"

"Dammit woman! Crap, now I need to find Nardi."
