Just curious, is there an “ideal range” a pitcher should be in for percent strikes thrown….. (eg: 65 to 75%)? I assume higher is better, but at the same time, you don’t want a pitcher throwing 100% strikes. thanks, Reply GallowayB July 14, 2018 Why did they release Tyler Mondile from Dayton? Reply redlegs4ever July 14, 2018 Wow they released him? Seems like his issue was a bigger deal than most thought. Any word on what went down Doug? Reply Brad July 14, 2018 Much like Ian Kahaloa, you have to do something very stupid to get released from low minors ball with a semblance of talent. redlegs4ever July 14, 2018 You ain’t kidding. Speaking of Kahola I’m surprised he hasn’t latched on somewhere else yet. Anyone know if he’s playing independent ball or something? MK July 14, 2018 Wonder if the Reds are running short of players with the addition of Greenville. The Dragons have added two players this week purchased from the Evansville Otters of the Independant Pioneer League, tonight’s starting pitcher Patrick McGuff and former teammate of Brendan McKay at U of L outfielder Logan Taylor/ Dragon roster a little lopsided with 4 infielders and 7 outfielders Reply Leave a Reply Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.CommentName* Email* Website Notify me of follow-up comments by email.
