Detroit’s Shotgun


   That sound you hear down at the corner is not a crime in the act of taking place.   Not unless you consider what Silas ‘Shotgun’ Carvalho is doing to South of the Border pitching.  In a league that has been dubbed the “The Pitching League” Silas stands apart from the crowd.  How apart from the crowd?  Here are the top three hitters:

.409  Carvalho  (DET)

.317  Li  (MIL)

.317  Longchamps (MIL)

The numbers speak for themselves.  Can this T-Bird hit .400 in the inaugural season?  Seems impossible but 47 games and 217 PA’s argue that it might be done.  All eyes on Detroit’s Silas Carvalho.
