Brooks continues to see action out of the Corpus Christi 'pen, though it looks like he's not really being considered as a pinch-hitting option thus far. Last night, he kept his ERA at 0.00 in the shadiest of ways:
This isn't the happiest time to bring it up, but I really feel that if a pitcher throws a wild pitch and a run scores, that ought to be an earned run. I mean, it's the pitcher's fault, isn't it?
Also: it's too bad the HBP wasn't intentional. Brooks Kieschnick, in a minor league brawl, in the Texas League? If that isn't old-fashioned American baseball, I don't know what is.
