No one is taking a dig at Jack Zduriencik, we're just preparing ourselves in advance for another potential let down after years filled with disappointments & draft busts.

Here's some lines on the season:

Sleeth: 1.16 ERA, 31 IP, 19 H, 32 K, 4 BB
Sullivan: 2.45 ERA, 36.2 IP, 23 H, 42 K, 9 BB
Stauffer: 2.45 ERA, 22 IP, 17 H, 36 K, 3 BB
Ray: 2.17 ERA, 29 IP, 20 H, 32 K, 4 BB
Bakker: 3.13 ERA, 23 IP, 23 H, 23 K, 5 BB

Bakker got roughed up a little bit in his last start, but the rest of these guys are really dealing. Should be a special year for college pitchers.

One college hitter after Weeks that could go in the top 10:

Michael Aubrey: .492/.560/.778-63 AB, 4 HR, 6 2B, 6 BB

Matt Murton is hitting better, but needs to get over .300 before being mentioned here. He could do that with one good game.

What are the odds of Bakker dropping to us in the second round? It seems he's probably ranked about #20 overall at this point in time. I'd love to snag him.

At this point in time, Bakker dropping to the 2nd round doesn't seem very likely. I'm guessing he goes somewhere from the middle of the first round to the middle of the supplemental first round. If he bounces back from his last start & finishes the rest of the season strong, who knows, some team might just take him in the top 10.

Of course you never do know. Jeff Baker, Jason Neighborgall & Jeff Clement were all guys we talked about at this time last year as possibilities for our 1st round pick that fell well beyond our 2nd & 3rd round selections. Of course, 2 of those guys were affected by the evil Scott Boras. The only person from this year's draft that I know is represented by Boras is Landon Powell. For some reason, that info hasn't leaked out like it did last year.

That said, there still should be plenty of good players available at our 2nd round pick. The depth of this year's draft is similar to the 2001 draft.

Updates from the past week, the usual group of pitchers:

Tim Stauffer: CG win over the weekend, with 9 K, 4 H, 1 ER, 3 BB. ERA now 2.03.
Brad Sullivan: 10 shutout innings, 12 K, 0 BB, 9 H. Threw 133 pitches-ick. 1.93 ERA.
Kyle Sleeth: 5 IP, 3 ER, 3 H, 6 K, 2 BB. 80 pitches on cold night. 1.75 ERA.
Kyle Bakker: 7 IP, 5 H, 0 ER, 8 K, 0 BB. 102 pitches, 2.40 ERA.
Chris Ray got hit hard last Wednesday against Richmond. His ERA jumped to an even 3.00.

Adam Loewen didn't pitch for some reason. Not sure if he's experiencing more problems or if his start has been bumped back due to rain. He DH'd all week and hit quite well.

A new name popping up on the scene is Florida International's Josh Banks. Banks pitched a CG shutout over the weekend striking out 10 while not allowing a walk. On the year Banks has tossed 51.1 innings with 56 Ks & a 1.75 ERA.

I decided to add up Adam Loewen's numbers from the box scores so far. No cumulative data on the Chipola site...

68 ABs, 16 hits, .235 batting average, 5 2B, 1 3B, 1 HR, 11 runs, 13 RBIs, 2 SBs.

16.2 IP, 2 H, 0 ER, 16 K, 3 BB.

No word on why he didn't pitch over the weekend, but he is scheduled to throw again tomorrow.

Some stats for high school players are starting to leak out...

Lastings Milledge: .429 BA, 25 AB, 10 H, 1 2B, 4 HR, 9 RBI, 17 SB
Jarrod Saltalamacchia: .550 BA, 20 AB, 11 H, 2 2B, 3 3B, 1 HR, 4 RBI, 4 SB
Robert Lane: .458 BA, 24 AB, 11 H, 1 2B, 1 HR, 11 RBI, 5 SB.
Ian Stewart: .500 BA, 12 AB, 6 H, 1 2B, 3 HR, 11 RBI.

Big power numbers for both Milledge & Stewart so far this year.

Jared Hughes: 1-0, 1.40 ERA, 1 GS, 5 IP, 4 H, 7 K, 1 BB.
Andrew Miller: 3-0, 0.00 ERA, 3 GS, 21 IP, 5 H, 8 BB, 47 K

Miller certianly is mowing 'em down, but those 8 BBs in 21 IP doesn't look too good, especially for a high schooler.

17 stolen bases. Is that a typing error or has he had a ton of walks.

I noticed that too, he obviously has to be getting on base an awful lot. He's probably getting pitched around a lot, so many to most to all of his walks are probably coming by default.

Adam Loewen was back on the mound last night. He picked up his 3rd win while going 6 innings, allowing only 1 hit & 2 walks, 0 runs while striking out 8. He has now pitched 22.2 scoreless innings allowing only 3 hits, 5 walks while striking out 24. While he is at the JC level, he is playing against some of the better JCs in the nation.

Through 3/17 Rickie Weeks is hitting .478/.581/.971. He has 9 2B, 2 3B, 7 HR & 13 stolen bases in 13 tries. In 69 AB, his BB to K split is 16 to 7. Like Loewen, Weeks doesn't play against the best D1 talent, but his numbers are still too good to ignore.

Kyle Sleeth picked up another win last night against North Carolina, going 8 deep allowing only 1 run off 4 hits with 10 Ks.

Brad Sullivan had 13 Ks last night. No word on the rest of his line.

Those SB totals for Milledge are correct. The coach at Lakewood Ranch has him and another kid committed to U of Florida stealing a lot of bases.

Southern's website does a pretty good job now updating their stats once a week, usually on Mondays after the weekend series.

Weeks added 13 ABs in 3 games last week, boosting his line to .512/.602/1.012. In those 13 ABs he added 2 2B, 1 3B & 1 HR along with 2 more SBs, 2 walks & a K.

Weeks' statistical production gets questioned because of the level of competition Southern plays in the SWAC, but it's hard to deny his dominance not only this year, but during his entire collegiate career.

Loewen pitched again last Wednesday, and did something he hasn't done all year: He allowed a run. 2 runs at that, both earned. He did strike out 7 while walking 3 & allowing 2 hits.

On the year, Loewen has tossed 28.2 innings while allowing only 5 hits, 8 BBs & 2 ER while striking out 31. He has been walking a few too many in his past 2 outings, but without a doubt, on the year, he has dominated. 5 hits total in 28.2 innings of work is rather impressive.

Kyle Sleeth set a D1 record by winning his 26th consecutive game on Friday. Details to come on Monday...

There are no talks going on all they can do now is watch and chit chat . I know this because that is what the Brewers are doing to us with Dana . They will not start the numbers talk till after the season they want to get as many looks as possible before they make an offer.I would assume that Baltimore will make every effort to sign him.

FYI Jack Z will be out at Danas game tommorrow to watch as they have had someone at almost every game so far I think he will end up bieng a Brewer before the draft would be my guess at this point.He is pitching very well topped out at 95 and working at 89-93.

More fyi Parra has hit 97 this spring !!!!!!!!!

The future looks bright ( in a couple of years)

Mike

Just a note that the "Dana" who Mike speaks of here is Dana Eveland, a LHP the Brewers drafted in the 16th round last year.

Here's what colbyjack wrote about Eveland in his fine draft-and-follow feature from a couple of weeks back:

16th round pick Dana Eveland-LHP. College of the Canyons (California-transferred from Hill JC in Texas). 6'1" 215, L/L.

Eveland recently pitched an exhibition game against the University of Southern California & highly touted RHP Anthony Reyes, a pre-season All-American both this year & last year. Eveland pitched 4 strong scoreless innings against a tough USC lineup, allowing only 1 walk & no hits while striking out 3 while touching 90 mph with his fastball & showing a good curveball & overall movement. The Brewers are very interested in signing Dana this spring, and it likely will come down to a matter of giving him what he deserves. The Brewers drafted Eveland in the 16th round last year with every intention of signing him. Fortunately, they still hold his rights to do so this spring.

Thanks for the updates Mike!

Here are some performances on the week as it pertains to our #2 overall selection:

Tim Stauffer-CG, 9 Ks, picks up the loss. 4th CG this season, now has 2.00 ERA.
Kyle Sleeth-as noted won his 26th consecutive game going 8 innings, allowing 7 Hs, 1 ER, 1 BB & striking out 12. ERA on the year is 1.56.
Brad Sullivan went 7 innings, allowing 6 H, 2 ER, 1 BB while striking out 12. His ERA on the year is 2.04.
Michael Aubrey is now hittign .487/.549/.800 on the year with 12 2B & 8 HR in 115 ABs for Tulane.

Southern hasn't updated their statistics since last week, so no Weeks update.

And I'm sure PrimeTimeHater is rather pleased with his surging Mississippi State Bulldogs. They are now ranked 5th by BA, led by an extremely strong pitching staff & LHP Paul Maholm. Maholm is now 4-1 on the year (should be 5-0, as he had lost a tough one in his debut), with a 1.56 ERA after another strong performance last Friday (8 shutout innings). In 48 innings he has allowed only 29 hits & 10 BBs while striking out 43. Maholm probably isn't a candidate for our #2 pick, but you never know...he certainly won't last until our 2nd rounder.

Kat will be happy to know that Kyle Bakker could slide as he continues to struggle with Georgia Tech.

Happy that he could potentially be our 2nd round pick. Not happy that it is due to his struggles. You'd think a kid that big would be able to throw harder. Is there any word on why exactly he seems to top out at about 90 mph? Could it be his mechanics?
