Buffalo Bisons 3 – Leigh Valley IronPigs 6 I expect Jack Egbert to be this ineffective, but what I don’t expect him to be is this wild. Egbert lasted for only 81 pitches tonight and only 45 of those were strikes (55%). He only gave up two walks, but with his stuff he needs to […]

Buffalo Bisons 4 – Norfolk Tides 3 Baby steps for Mark Cohoon. While today wasn’t a great start, it was his best start so far in Triple-A and a quality start to say the least. After giving up five earned runs and six earned runs twice in his first three starts he has only given […]

Buffalo Bisons 4 – Norfolk Tides 2 Pat Misch had arguably his best start of the year even though he didn’t get the victory. His only main trouble was in the 4th inning when the Tides pieced together three singles to get the inning started and load the bases. A sac fly scored one batter, […]

Buffalo Bisons 1 – Durham Bulls 4 Jack Egbert is finally where he should be in the organization and got the results that are to be expected from him against much more experienced hitters who he cannot fool with his junkerball repertoire. He had a terrible night with his control walking four batters and throwing […]

Buffalo Bisons 3 – Durham Bulls 9 Well, Mark Cohoon looked very unimpressive yet again today to say the least. He was sitting 86 mph with his fastball and had the occasional 87 and 88 mph one, but wasn’t getting much more than that and while he didn’t walk anybody his command was way off. […]

The twitter account says it is the official page of Spartanburg Methodist College Baseball, the school Missigman had committed to, so this is likely indeed true. Missigman has been as high as 89 mph with his fastball and at 6’4″ 170 lbs. there is still some projection left in […]
