Mark Rogers got lit up yet again in the AFL giving up 5 runs 2 of which were long balls. he now has a 17 ERA in 7.2 innings. I'm hoping it's mainly fatigue from his first year back from shoulder surgery. He posted great numbers in A ball this year with an ERA of 1.67. If he's not able to handle the level of talent in the AFL than he is obviously not ready to move up to a higher class come spring. One step forward, two steps back, the story of Mark Rogers.
Jonathan Lucroy continues to swing a hot bat this fall:

I can't wait for spring to see what this kid can do. Well, I can't wait for spring in general because no baseball is depressing.
The Crew has 10 days to decide if they want to use the options on Looper or Weathers. I would say there is a 0% chance that Weathers is coming back and about a 75% chance that Looper is. Looper picthed better last season than most people gave him credit for. Comparisons to Suppan are completely off base.
