It was great to see them bounce back from our last series and that opening game. Pulled it together and really gave us a nice series win. And Witte with that pitching performance in game three was great to see.

Was also nice to see Estrada get some hits. Hes not all the way out yet but hes starting to put the bat on the ball.

I really like Estrada in that six hole. If he struggles it doesnt cripple us as bad as it did in the 3 and 4 hole and when he delivers, it stills hugely beneficial.

Me too Coach. Im going to leave him there for right now and see if that doesnt continue to spark the team.

Beyond that I dont think theres too much else to address really. We are playing some good baseball.

I wanted to ask you about Tyler Coggin. Lately his pitching has been good but he has that one bad inning that seems to doom him. Is that more just the learning curve of a young pitcher? Im not looking to shake up our rotation any, but just wanted to see how you saw things.

There's a little frustration in his body language, but it helps that we keep winning so at least he doesn't feel like he's letting his teammates down completely. I'm confident he'll turn things around, much like Estrada.

Yeah Im not about to yank him out of the rotation spot or anything, his stuff is just too good when hes on. Luckily we have a good team behind him to pick him up if need be.

Alright one last thing I wanted to discuss...the flurry of trades. Not so much whats been done but whether or not theres anything we should look to do. Offensively we could use another power bat, maybe at 3rd, but Other then that and maybe some relief depth I dont see much of a glaring weakness.

I don't think there is anything worth doing to be honest. I mean if you can go out and get a Tokujiro Maeda for as cheap as Virginia Beach did, then by all means. But I like the team we have assembled.

I didnt think there was, but I just wanted to see how you saw it. I will keep my ears open, because you never know.

Thanks for your time coach, I will let you get to preparing this week.



Kara, can you send Giovanni Merico up to see me please?



Giovanni, how are you doing? I just wanted to take a chance and commend you on your strong start to the season. Youve done a great job keeping our lineup going. How are you finding the season so far?

I'm seeing the ball well, but haven't found that power swing yet. I know its coming though.

1. Discuss the latest series. What was one thing you loved and one thing you hated?

We took two of three from San Diego and got another fantastic outing from Witte. I loved what the team did. We didnt let past losses get to us and kept playing like we did to start the season. Coggin bounced back from a few rougher starts and our offence has been hitting well all year. I think the only thing I hated was losing that middle game, but Ive loved what we have done so far.

2. Talk about at least one piece of news.   

The bold move GM Powers made paid off in the end. If it hadnt I wonder if everything would have been cheery for him and his team or if there would have been some questioning of any future moves he made. But it worked so anything else is moot.
 
3. With all-star voting underway, what is one name that surprises you towards the top and what is one name you feel is not getting enough love?

I think the one name that has surprised me is Manny Diaz. When we acquired him, we knew he was talented, but he is having a better year then we probably thought he would be having and is sitting on top of the catching list.

And while I would love to see Giovanni Merico get more of the love he deserves, one guy who isnt on the top three for his position is Harry McCoubrey. Hes been having a good year for us in center and deserves more love.

4. Talk about your opponent this week. What player on the opposing team do you have to worry about the most?

We head to Virginia Beach to take on the Tide. Its going to be a tough week for us but its not a week where we cant win three games. Weve got the bats going, our arms are pitching well...weve got everything clicking and if we can limit what they are able to do, we should be able to walk out with the series.

Huge series this week, Virginia Beach looked really good with their new players so we will have to be at our best. But I know we can beat them.

Me too coach. And if this is the week where Estrada decides to go off, we will be laughing even harder.

I dont have much for you this week. Things are likely going to move along like they have the last few weeks, line up wise.

Excellent. I will let you get to practice.

I'm just grateful that you've given the opportunity for regular playing time. I thought I would never get the chance that I could show what I could do again. Thanks alot GM Mark.
