(South) Carolina in My Mind

While Yankee Javier Vazquez may finally be turning things around (he's 2-0 in his last two starts w/ only 3ER allowed in 14 IP, 5 H, 16K and 5BB), and Atlanta starter Derek Lowe continues his roller-coaster ride, Braves fans still have a reason to rejoice. Arodys Vizcaino, the key piece to the trade that send Vazques to the Yankees, was promoted to High A Myrtle Beach today. Before his promotion, the 19 year-old Vizcaino was 9-3 in Low A Rome with a 2.34 ERA in his 12 starts, sporting a beautiful 0.995 WHIP, 66K in 69.1 IP. With Arody's advancement, the Pelicans now have what is arguably the best pitching staff in the minors. Try this one on for size: Julio Teheran, Randall Delgado, Vizcaino, and J.J. Hoover. Not too shabby! I was really disappointed to see that Bowman didn't include the former Yankee in their 2010 set, but perhaps there will be a team set issued that will include all four.
