Previous video: MLB 2K12 - MLB Thoughts: April Call-Up's Harper and Trout - April 28th, 2012
All season long I hope to bring to you some of my thoughts and predictions.
Current prediction standings: 164-148
Bouncing back into the positives to further strengthen my season figures, I finished the day 11-3 despite a postponement in Minnesota between the Twins and Royals. They will make up this game as part of a doubleheader on June 30th.
Sadly I was wrong in thinking Trout would have the better debut than Harper, as he ended his day going 0-for-4 with a strikeout in the lead-off spot while Harper, who hit in the seven-spot, went 1-for-3 with a double and an RBI in the 9th inning.
Delmon Young looks to be facing evaluation for his anger and possibly alcohol management issues after allegedly getting into a fight outside of his Manhattan hotel. Young will likely miss out a week of action for his role in the alleged hate crime, as during the scuffle he was reported by police as screaming anti-semitic epithets.
Young remains the same kind of attitude problem that left the Rays to dumping him despite him being one of their highly touted prospects. The guy simply has issues and needs to step back and reevaluate what it is he's throwing away.
Today should be an interesting day for baseball as you have some really good pitching match-up's, and some teams heating up offensively while others hit some new found struggles.
