Thunder Alums Shine In Intrasquad Game

Well, most of them did.  Over at his frequently linked to blog, Pete Abraham’s got the pitching line’s from yesterday’s intrasquad game.

Jeff Karstens, Scott Patterson, Steven Jackson and Edwar Ramirez pitched for “Team Goose,” while Dan McCutchen and Sean Henn laced em’ up for “Team Gator.”  Here are the pitching lines for pitchers from Thunder past.

Team Goose
Karstens: 2 IP,  1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 0 K
Patterson: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 0 K
Jackson: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 1 K
Ramirez: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 0 K

Team Gator
McCutchen: 1 IP, 1 H, 1 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 1 K
Henn: 2 IP, 2 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 3 BB, 0 K

So most of the pitchers really stood out for good reasons.  For Sean Henn…well, I guess it’s more of the same.  I wonder if he’s ever recovered from getting the call straight out of Double-A.  In the Yankee clubhouse last season, Henn told me that he felt like he was ready at the time, but didn’t really feel like he’d showed it.

Three years later, and there are still questions about whether he’s a ready for primetime player.

Another thing that may be working against him, at least in the long term, would be the loss of Ron Guidry.  While did pitch on Guidry’s team, Dave Eiland is the pitching coach now, and Henn also told me last year that he credited Guidry with helping him with “certain situations and how to attack guys and what to look for and things like that.”
