Feelin' Kinda Blue:
I was able to catch a couple innings of Zach Lee's Wednesday night start against the Tennessee Smokies, and he was dominant.
While no radar gun readings were readily available, Lee was throwing all four of his pitches and kept the Smokie hitters off-balance.
Lee's line: 7 IP, 5 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 1 HR, 1 BB (intentional), 7 K, 84 pitches, 55 strikes
That's a great performance for any pitcher, but especially a 21-year-old in Double-A. His first outing was abbreviated, but he's struck out 12 and given up 11 baserunners in 10 innings so far.
Lee's prospect status has diminished since the start of last season, despite having, arguably, a better overall season in 2012 than he did in 2011. Still, I rated him as my top prospect in the system, and I stick by that (for now, thanks to Yasiel Puig).
Mike Newman of ROTOScouting and FanGraphs had a nice write-up on Lee (and Puig) that's worth a read. He also took video of Lee.
Lee's delivery is almost p...

Carlos Quentin has reason to think that his getting hit by a pitch was intentional. But Zack Greinke also has plenty of reason to prove it was not.
Either way, the benches emptied twice Thursday night for one of the biggest brawls in recent Major League Baseball history, with Greinke taking home a broken collarbone and Quentin finally relieving his aggression after getting plunked...

Jeff Weaver is not pleased with my cheap shot, and appears to be plotting my demise. Sorry Jeff. Let me try to redeem myself a little here. (Image source: http://thesuicidesqueeze.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/gcgY9n9Y.jpg)
All right, I admit it. The other day I took a cheap shot at former Dodger pitcher Jeff Weaver on my blog about the Aaron Harang trade. I talked about how...
