Little Unit Update

Ryan Anderson had his contract purchased by Milwaukee from the Surprise Fightin' Falcons of the Golden Baseball League. He was assigned to Single-A Brevard County. His fastball has been clocked at 93-94 MPH, potentially meaning that maybe the Mariners gave up on him too soon. I am not going to second guess the decision to release him, as it was definitely time to move on, and I am happy to see the Little Unit throwing again. I assumed he was selling insurance somewhere by now. Keep an eye on him. If he makes it to the bigs, this could be one of the biggest feel-good stories of the decade.

I motion the blogosphere splits the cost of the movie rights on this story now.

Ach, Gerpotenwogen!

Now watch, he'll top 98 in no time, and end up becoming a 1-2 punch with Ben Sheets. With Carlos Lee in the OF belting 35 HRs (traded for another ex-M's castoff, S-Pod), too, the formerly-known-as Pilots will come back to haunt us yet again.

Here's to hoping he doesn't make a comeback along the lines of Jim "The Rookie" Morris. He's still young enough, though, to further his career path without such a Morrisian gap.
