    Re: 1998 News & Highlights

    The Pilots called up 2 rookies for this season:

    P Jason Rhodes (#20, 1993) has elite SY but, so far has been great. I put him 5th in the rotation and he's pitched 4 complete games in 4 starts. He is 3-1 with a 1.75 ERA. Should have a solid career.

    C Wilbert Mercurio (#66, 1995) was used early on until I could sign some FAs, but has earned a shot to get some more games in. Is hitting .333 thru 7 games played and will occasionally start against lefties.

    Joshua Frost just pitched a 2 hit shutout. His start to the season had me a little concerned but his latest outing put those concerns to rest.

    lol I should have known not to flirt with the jinx. After posting, Rhodes goes 5.1IP, giving up 4 runs. His worst outing of his career.

    Dennis Currie picked up his 200th career win earlier this season. He's only the 3rd Pilot to ever do that.

    Thomas Walters throws a 1 hit shutout. A 7th inning single stopped the no-hitter.

    For just the 3rd time in team history, the Pilots have 5 15+ game winners. This is our 95th season so it is pretty rare for us.

    1904 and 1942 are the other times that it has happened.
