Monday Morning Manager: The Day-Game Version
So far in 2011 the Tulsa Drillers are 23-19 in Texas League Play. Though through their last ten games the team is 4-6, the Drillers still own a half-game lead in the Northern Division over Northwest Arkansas. And they own a two and a half game lead over the Arkansas Travelers.
The starting pitching has certainly been a strength so far in the season with Juan Nicasio, Christian Friedrich, and Rob Scahill all pitching great in their last outing. Colorado Rockies starting pitcher Aaron Cook will be on the mound for the Drillers Monday as he is making his third rehab start with the team and looking to build on his last two outings.
Not only has the pitching been great so far, the bats are starting to heat up. Scott Beerer is hitting .345 over his last ten games, with two home runs and five runs batted in. Thomas Field is also starting to turn his season around as well. Field has put together what is easily his best ten game stretch as a Tulsa Driller. He is hitting .313 with ten hits, one home run, eight runs batted in, four runs in his last ten games.
Here are the questions for the week Drillville:
- Who do you predict will make the Texas League All-Star team from the Drillers in 2011?
- What has been your most memorable game so far in 2011?
- With only a few players back from the 2010 team. Who do you believe is the Drillville’s new favorite player?
- If given a choice of the two. Would you prefer original double-bubble or apple flavored dubble-bubble?
