so, everybody already knows about wieters. he's nasty and he needs to be in bowie soon. 3 for 4 with two home runs tonight, tied for the league lead in homers, lots to like there. but that's not who i'm excited about tonight.
i'm excited about chris tillman. the kid is 20 years old. tonight, he threw six innings of 1 hit ball. he's walking too many people, but i repeat, he's 20 years old. and he's tearing it up in AA to the tune of 3-0 record, 2.87 e.r.a., 1.18 whip, and 29 Ks in 31 innings. i know i'm laying down a huge jinx on this kid right now and he's young and could get hurt or never pull it together after facing some adversity or whatever... but there's a decent chance that we look back and say "tillman for bedard straight up would have been better for us than them." jones is going to be a nice piece for the outfield for a long time, but tillman is going to make that trade the heist of the decade for us.
