Wow Wright looks lost

Horrible 3 pitch stikeout
Error
Mental mistake on possible DP
Infield hit hit right at him that he should of made

Better get these mistakes out of the way before you get to the Big Apple son, they will eat you alive

Why isn't Sizemore in this game? His numbers are pretty good this year and he was the game's MVP last year. I'd like to see him.

All I have to say is that 18 year old Felix made Wright just look silly. Downright nasty breaking ball to go w/ him throwing upper 90's heat? That's just wrong at that age, wrong indeed.

Side note, he looked bigger then his 6'3" 170 listed height and weight. Must of put on some weight this year. Great mound presence for a kid so young.

Oh yeah, and how do they get Francis's age wrong??? The whole ESPN crew with every stat they most likely have and they say he is 19?? Try 23, I expected Gammons and the staff to be able to get ages right. Sadly I was wrong. :-t

Missed the game, how was it. Who looked good? Any good highlights?

Francis is 23, but he's Canadian. Evidently with the exchange rate being what is, that makes him only 19 American.

Then that will make El Duque about 2,143?

lol, nice ;-D

Even worse that wasn't their only mistake, just their biggest. On one of their other mistakes they didn't have Delmon Young's correct age either. Another thing Gammons kept reffering to K-Rod from a past Futures Game as "Felix" Rodriguez. Think his memory is going a bit? :-b

The game was pretty much all dominated by pitchers. Cain had some troubles with his control in the end though. Couldn't spot anything and he walked a few, my guess is that nerves got to him a bit seeing as how he is just 19.
