Quincy Latimore has come out on a tear for for the Adelaide Bite in the Australian League. He has an OPS of 1.601 thanks to slugging 1.071 and a .529 OBP in his first week. Latimore belted three homeruns driving in eight runs in a doubleheader sweep of the Melbourne Aces last night.
Die hard fans had concerns about Latimore losing some power after hand surgery, but the bombs eased some of that concern albeit in the ABL rather than the AFL. It’s always good when one of the talented players in the system hits what is described as a ‘moon shot.’ Latimore jacked a three-run homerun in the first inning of the twin bill. Then, Latimore hit two homeruns in the night cap.
Latimore should play at AA Altoona this season. Make sure you pick up a Curve schedule at PirateFest, check out their site on the blogroll, and most of all keep an eye out for this exciting talent coming through the Bucs system.
Tony Sanchez had a great argument for the honors with a nice week, but it came down to quantity over quality for us. If you have been sleeping for the past ten days, head over to his blog for an update. The link is in our blogroll to your right.
Josh Harrison continue to show some patience, getting a walk in three straight games. He mixed in a few rips this week as he tried to repeat for the coveted award.
We had a great photoshop worked up for Andrew Lambo. Some argument could be made as he added four more hits this week, including two yesterday. None was as big as his walk off slam to give struggling Mesa a big win. A couple more hits and Lambo was our guy.
