Fun comment

from Trenton's Noah Hall:

"No, I think with hitters, there are just teams that sometimes you're just comfortable against them for one reason or another. Although like (Joe) Bateman, I hate facing that guy, you know? That's a guy that's really tough for me. He's just tough. It's not always just the team, but some teams, for some reason or another, you're just more confident and you happen to get more hits. That's all it is."

A tactful way by Mr. Hall saying "they stink." It's a stretch, but sort of reminds one from a few scenes in the movie "Major League" without the expletive deletives.

I think the point was more of a compliment towards Joe Bateman. I wish everyone could have heard Hall say it because he has a lot of respect for Bateman.

That's the Joe Bateman that made the Low A and High A All-Star games in consecutive years--as a middle reliever. I'm not sure who the other Joe Bateman was that started the year. Obviously his injury issues in Spring Training set him back a bit, the month of August he was pretty untouchable...even by lefties.

Hey Joe, a question about a player move....why was Osiris Matos moved to Augusta? I'd thought it was an injury, but I can't find a report anywhere.
