Craig Hansen called up

Postby Midgetoe » Mon Sep 19, 2005 3:40 pm

Reported today in "The Bostonist"

"And finally, speaking of rookies, the latest news is that Craig Hansen, the power pitching reliever from St. Johns that had been shutting down batters in Double-A Portland, has been called up to see some big-league action in Tampa."

I thought they were going to shut him down, because of a tired arm.

I seen him pitch a couple of times for St John's and the guy has nasty stuff. I was hoping the Mets were going to draft him to replace that bum looper.

Any news on when he is going to be closing for them.

It was reported in the Herald today too. He could be in uniform tonight...
Can't wait to see him pitch. I think Foulke gets a shot at being the closer next season, and if he's healthy, I think he succeeds, leaving Hansen to set up for now.

Not a bad start for the kid. One inning against the D-rays, two Ks, no hits.

Craig Hansen pitching:
Toby Hall: Strike looking, Strike swinging, Foul, Ball, Hall struck out swinging.
Damon Hollins: Ball, Ball, Strike looking, Ball, Hollins grounded out to shortstop.
Julio Lugo: Strike looking, Strike looking, Lugo struck out looking.

End of Inning (0 Runs, 0 Hits, 0 Errors)
I'm back. Sorta.

Do not boo Johnny.

Yes but can he start and also hit? Because that's what this team needs if they want to have any chance of not falling on their faces and missing out on the playoffs :-P

Nice beginning for the kid though. Too bad he went through the dead arm or we could have seen this in August.

This guy looks like Derek Turnbow v2.0 8-o

And he also pitches pretty good too

He won't close this year, but he'll be everybody's sleeper next year. If Foulke can't recover his form, he's the logical choice.
