Hey Brian,,

Are you telling me that NewYorkDore did not post this?? I would have thought for sure he would have given us a play by play description of all 3 games.

I had a chance to post it so I did.

Not fair. I've been traveling for the better part of two weeks and just got back from the Left Coast.

I will say that the revelation of the weekend was Caleb Cotham, who apparently has really improved this offseason in preparation for his RS Freshman Year.

Also impressing was Parker Hanks, a former UCLA transfer who has been a platoon LF/DH for two years now.

Also, Mikie Minor was being Mikie Minor. He threw 5 no-hit innings on Friday against a lineup that included both Pedro and Dom De la Osa.

Hey New York

As I said I was surprise that you did not do this. But, I fully understand as I am at work instead of watching the Orange and White World Series.
