You’re in luck today. Two posts for the price of one. Okay, that’s a little overboard, I admit.
This past weekend displayed some impressive showings from some of the guys.

Prospect of the Day(s)
Saturday: This was a tough call. I had it down to a pair of Dragons in Peterson and Cisco. Perterson was perfect at the plate while Cisco had a MWL debut that was superb. After extended evaluation, I determined that both Brent Peterson (3-for-3, 2 R, 2 RBI) and Andrew Cisco (6 IP, 3 H, R, ER, BB, 8 SO. I think he actually prefers Drew. At least that’s how he has his name on Twitter) were worthy of the honor. Cisco’s effort permitted the Dragons to notch their first win of the young season.
Sunday: A number of viable candidates on this day. Some great offensive performances, but you know what they say: great pitching beats great hitting and Romano’s efforts land him as BRM’s Prospect of the Day. For the second straight game, the Dragons got an excellent effort from their starter as Romano stymied the Whitecaps over 6 innings. Back-to-back strong starts afforded the Dragons a series split after dropping the first two games of the series.
