Wednesday's wrap

Gary Brown was the lone Giants position player to see the field.  He went 1/5 with a single, an RBI, and a stolen bag.

Keith Law (@keithlaw) also reported that Gary turned a time of 3.96 from home to first which is, according to Keith, a grade 80 for a RHB.  To put that into perspective, a quick explanation of the scout grading scale from

Grades are given on a base-5 system (40, 45, 50, 55, 60, etc.)...A score of 50 is major-league average, 60 is above-average (also referred to as “plus”), and 70 is among the best (“plus-plus”). 80 is top of the charts, and not a score that gets thrown around liberally. 

This just in...Gary Brown is fast.  Like top of the charts fast.

Seth Rosin recorded two outs in the top of the 8th, striking out one batter.  Law also mentioned Rosin, saying he was throwing 91-92 but that the slider wasn't too sharp.  He used the word "awful".  It seems to me that Law may occasionally be overly harsh though.
