Dave on the air

Late notice, I know, but I’ll be joining Pat Dillon in about an hour to talk about the M’s on the Everett Aquasox pregame show. The interview should air around 6:50 pm pacific time. You can listen live thanks to Aquasox.com or turn your radio to AM 1380.

Also, since I haven’t plugged Pat recently, if you’ve never listened to him call a game, make it a point to do so. He’s great.

    Cool, thanks Dave.

    Oh man, 1380 comes in like crap for me.

    Anyway we can get a recording posted?

    I went to the Sox game last night, that centerfielder looks pretty money (didn’t catch his name…)

    Gavin Dickey, from the U of Florida.

    He’s a good athlete, center fielders arm. His bat is a big question mark, however.

    Halman, Lo and the arms in Everett are the guys to watch.

    I went to the Aquasox game tonight, but didn’t listen to the radio show because I was, well, bussing to/from the park. Doug Fister is awesome. Awesome awesome. The other pitchers, though… Sure, Colon can throw in the low 90’s, but he couldn’t throw strikes. Beltran was just plain terrible; the first three batters he faced all hit his first pitch hard, for a single, home run, and double. And this after 5 innings of no-hit ball from Fister and another from Kafka (though I’m not sure I’d call Ari Kafka’s inning of no-hit ball particularly good either, he also had command issues).

    Lo and Moore were the position players I was most impressed with, I think. I like Lo’s speed; he charged in to catch a short pop fly that might have been foul, might have been fair, and would have been caught by Yuniesky Betancourt if it had been in Safeco. Moore impressed me behind the plate and with the bat. Given how wild some of those guys were throwing, he did a great job blocking pitches in the dirt and recovering from some of the more ridiculous wild pitches.

    But, man, Doug Fister. He’s awesome. I dunno if I’ll finish transcribing my game notes tonight, but the first five innings it’s all just K’s and “Wow”s.

    When I was talking to Pat the other day, he mentioned that he thought Doug Fister could be the best pitcher in the league this year.

    5 perfect innings, 9 K’s? That’s not a bad start…

    Anyone know anything about Doug Fister? Age, side he throws from, stuff, how we acquired him? That name doesn’t ring a bell for me.

    Doug Fister’s college stats

    He was the M’s 7th round pick out of Fresno State in the draft this year. He’s the new Robert Rohrbaugh.

  11. Deanna on June 23rd, 2006 1:14 pm

    Oddly, Rohrbaugh was the starter at the only other Everett game I’ve ever attended, when Jeff Clement debuted last year, and I thought he was pretty good too. Maybe I just luck out getting to see these 7th-round studs.

    I’ve got my entry up about the Aquasox game, with a few pictures of Fister.

    It wasn’t five perfect innings, though. Anthony Johnson, the first hitter for the Dust Devils, grounded to short, and Ogui Diaz pretty much just dropped the ball for an error. Fister retired the next 15 guys with 9 strikeouts, 4 ground outs, 2 fly outs.

    Any new news on when Morrow might join Everett (if that is still, or was ever, the plan)?

  13. msb on June 23rd, 2006 6:15 pm

    from the AP when he signed:

    “Morrow will report to Seattle’s spring training facility in Peoria, Ariz., to get his arm back into pitching shape. He went 21 days between his penultimate collegiate start and his final one, on May 26, while Cal’s season took a break for final exams.

    The Mariners said they will be cautious with him while he gets into game-ready shape. Once he’s ready, the team plans to send him to Class-A Inland Empire in San Bernardino, Calif.”
