Any report if Gonzalez was able to break 85 MPH on his fastball?

The real question is whether with Jason Stifler on the DL, Stifler's mom still comes to the games.

What about Reimold?

Dean, no report on that velocity for Gonzo?

any reason why hobgood hasn't pitched in awhile?

Jeff Z's reply: Not Dean, but Hobgood has some tendonitis in his right shoulder, which may explain a little why his velocity is down. He's doing some strengthening exercises and he could be back on the mound in a week to 10 days.
