Rain delay

Hey everyone,

so it seems that hurrican bill is causing some bad weather, and I am writing this post from the clubhouse in Bowie during a rain delay.

sorry it’s been so long since my last post. I have alot to write about.
So the last time I posted was in Portland. I had an awesome off day there, I was able to get some lobster and explore downtown on the waterfront.

The next thing I have to write about is my outing in new Hampshire. It was pretty much awful. I couldn’t throw strikes, and the few that I did got hit. Worst outing of the year by far.

My next outing was also against new Hampshire, but it was at home. This outing was pretty much the exct opposite. I was able to throw whatever pitch, wherever I wanted to. I worked ahead in the count all night, and was able to pitch 8 innings for the first time in my career.

My next outing was in Harrisburg and it was a noon game. It was quite hot and quite humid at the onset of the game. The first couple innings were shaky, but i was able to settle in and get into a rythym. I was also able to have a couple quick innings to get back into my pitch count. The key to my success for this game was my ability to pitch in. Pitching in has been a huge key to my success all year, but especially so in my last outing. In the seventh inning the temperature cooled off dramatically, and it started pouring rain. It got so bad that the umpire at third base slipped and fell down twice. I couldn’t believe they didn’t call the game, but I was able to get through the inning. And right after they put the tarp on and eventually called the game. This gave me my first complete game of my career, even if it was rain shortened it is still exciting.

Well that is all that I have for now guys. Should have a decision on the game soon, and it isntime to wrap this one up. Until later everyone take care.

Dan, I was going through Harrisburg from Pittsburgh, and saw your win there. Tough, hot conditions to pitch or watch. Nice job on the mound, and congratulations on the complete game.

Hey there Daniel. We @ The ‘Burgh Blues have been keeping track of your AA season and, especially lately, you’ve been doing a phenomenal job. With every start, you seem to be improving. Keep us updated with everything going on in Altoona. Oh, and tell Yoslan he’s the man for us.

PS – It’s Jesse Behr here. I’m trying to lock down a baseball internship for next summer, and was wondering if you have any connections you can help me with. I’m willing to travel anywhere in the country for a chance to intern, so email me back if you got anything. Thanks man, keep up the good work.

Hey man nice couple of starts. Was hoping you were pitching Tuesday as I’m heading to Altoona but no such luck. Keep it up man.

Congrats, Danny, on a fine season and great progress. I hear you will be on your way to the Florida Instructional League this fall with some of the other rising stars (Jose Tabata, Tim Alderson, Bryan Morris, Gorkys Hernandez and others). It’s exciting to watch this group rise up and hope for the future.

It could very well be that when those names are on major league jerseys, they will have only played for Pirates teams with winning records.

Speaking of those winning records, congrats to the Lynchburg Hillcats for winning the Carolina League championship!!

I bet you’re pleased about that even more than I am, Dan.

How are things going in Bradenton?

I want to thank you for sharing a personal side of your season with us. I don’t know whether the Pirates plan to designate a different prospect each year to manage this blog or if you will continue to post while you are in the system.

As a result of your blogging, I saw my first Curve game and some future Pirates for the first time in action!

It will seem like a long off-season, but when spring training comes around, I will be eager to see who makes the big league club, who goes to Indy, Altoona, etc. Spring training is fun though because everyone is together for that (and the hopes and dreams of a new season come to life).

Take care! I’ll turn off the lights…….

In case anyone is still checking this blog….

the Post-Gazette just reported the likely projections for where the Bucs’ many prospects are starting in 2010.

And Moskie, it looks like you will be starting in Indianapolis! Congrats on your promotion! You will be joining your Curve classmates Pedro Alvarez, Brad Lincoln, and Jose Tabata.

Word also has it that the Pirates want you to be a reliever with the hopes that you will arrive in Pittsburgh mid-season (God knows we need bullpen help up here!).

The New Pirates are on their way!
