    Default B game today at Pirate City

    There was a B games this morning at 1000 at Pirate City. Most of the fringe major leaguers and some selected vets played in the game against a team made up of younger minor leaguers. This game was used to work on some things for these players. On hand to watch was Huntington, Greg Smith, Doug Strange and as usual Kyle Stark.

    GI Jones was working on his 1st base fielding and getting AB's against lefties.
    Corey Wimberly was working on his bunting...he was told to bunt every AB.
    Yates got some innings in
    Pearce was working at 3rd
    Josh Fields and Garrett Atkins were getting some extra AB's
    Karstans started the game and got in a few innings
    Meek got in an inning
    Brian Burres started for the minor league team
    Fernando Nieves also pitched for the minor league team
    Josh Rodriquez played SS

    As for the game it lasted only 6 innings because the staff was only focused on certain things for certain players. Umpires were used.

    Pearce was the hitting star....he roped 2 doubles down the left field line

    Burres abused GI Jones twice. I can now see why management wants to use Jones in a platoon.

    Doumit was rumored to be a participant but he was a no show.

    Ray Searage was there watching his pitchers.

    At least according to the beat reporters, Doumit is scheduled to start tomorrow in the regular major league game. I assume he didn't miss this one due to injury if they think he's healthy enough to go tomorrow. I'm not sure what other reason there would be, though. I guess they must have sent him somewhere else.
