I was in Memphis saturday and thought Matt Pearce was impressive on the mound. Didn’t know Lino was moved up so was surprised to see him behind the plate. I’d seen him in Springfield earlier. Diaz was not impressive in the field or at the plate. Right off the bat in the first he booted a hot bounder up the middle that hit him square in the glove. Ball off his bat had no carry. He didn’t seem to be playing with the energy and attitude I would have expected. Maybe the heat had something to do with it, but other guys seemed more energetic. I guess I had assumed Sam Tui would be the 9th inning guy but not so. He came in earlier.
Patrick Wisdom was the 1B coach, looking right into the evening 98 degree sun. Must be in the dog house. The most popular pre-game autograph was Stubby.
