Sorry, camera sucks (it's on the birthday request list to get a better one!).
Now, you know how into analyzing I am, so here's my observations:
Escobar came out strong. First 4 pitches just "there" and strike, strike, strike, strike. He seemed to get a little tired later in the game and wasn't throwing as strong. I don't know what his prior history is, so I can't compare it to 'pre-injury'. My bottom line: he looked good but not quite 100% but really close.
Vladi seemed a little off. I don't know if it was the indignity of getting struck out by a 'youngin' or what. He seemed like Vladi but in slower motion. When he pushed for second base on a hit, the whole crowd audibly gasped but it was a standing double.
He only had 3 at bats (I think)..then he just seemed to disappear. Escobar got a standing O on his exit and tipped his cap to the crowd, which got the crowd roaring even louder.
let me work on the photo link
