What To Imbibe On:
Coronado Brewing Co.- Mermaid's Red Ale. This is a very good representation of an amber ale. Reddish/brown in color with thin head. Some notes of orange and grass, as well as caramel malts in nose and flavor. Very well balanced, medium bodied, and easy drinking. Dig it.  I definitely am hop head, but good beer is good beer, and this fits the criteria of one.

Truth of the matter, Coronado has been brewing some quality stuff and was awarded the The Champion Mid-Size Brewery and Brewer at the 2014 World Beer Cup. Go get some!

I love to point out Amaro's mistakes, and I had a feeling not signing the young Cuban, Yasmany Tomas would be one.

The 24 year old has hit .340/.775 through his first 16 games for the Diamondbacks. The power will come.

JP Crawford was just activated from the minor league DL and has torn it up in his first 2 games back. It's time he moves to the Reading Fightins to join Roman Quinn and two future pieces of the Phillies puzzle.

How about Howard already an RBI single and solo Home Run in first 2 at bats. Maybe he is figuring something out.

Boom goes Howard. Up that trade value.

And with that at bat, Utley is now hitting 099. Oh how I want to cry. He is a much better hitter than that.

Asche fielding in LF again recently. I'm guess Franco gets promoted by end of May. But who gets cut from team? Asche will likely play in LF and be back up 3B. That moves Revere to RF???? or what?

Sizemore or Blanco are likely cuts.
