And just one more thing: Astros
It’s two-for-Thursday!!! Kevin Czerwinski’s got his Astros preview up as well. Here’s his "extra man."
Robert Bono, RHP: Though the Astros mostly stuck to the Commissioner’s slot recommendation — and
caught grief about it from their fans — they did give a six-figure bonus to
Robert Bono, last year’s 12th-round selection. The right-handed pitcher also
caught in his school but Houston decided it would be best if he stayed on the
mound instead of behind the plate. That said, he posted a 7.34 ERA in 34 Appy
League innings last year. But he’s got a nice curve, which is his signature
pitch, and that could carry him far. Where he’ll be to start this season remains
a mystery but you too can see Bono at some point this year and see if he has any
edge. Aw c’mon, you saw that comin’ didn’t you?
