The third pitcher of the day was Pat Misch. Pat went 2 full innings giving up no runs on 2 hits (1 a double), no walks and ringing up 3 strikeouts. Not to make excuses for Misch, but on the double I thought sure the ball was a flyball out when it left the bat. Then I looked up and saw Aaron Rowand was playing extremely shallow in CF. Rowand went way back on the ball but missed it by a foot or so. Misch threw 34 pitches......20 for strikes.

I've been a big Pat Misch fan for a long time. I really think this kid is going to have a big league career. Probably 4'th starter is his ceiling, but there are a lot of pitchers who have made a lot of money as #4 starters.

Not a bad day....

With Corriea and Sanchez outtings, Misch still has an outside chance at the 5th spot.

The good doctor and I often have conflicting opinions (especially Dodd Stadium issues), but we've always been in sync on Pat Misch. I truly believe, given a chance, he would be an effective major league starter.I am starting to doubt if that chance will ever come in Frisco though.

Why would Misch want to be a starter in Texas?
