Cuban defector Kendry Morales was granted residency in the Dominican Republic today and should be declared a free agent by major league baseball within the next few weeks. He’s listed as a 21-year-old 1B/OF with serious power. Unfortunately, when it comes to Cuba, I got nothing. I don’t know anyone who has seen him play, and I don’t have anything to offer as insight into his abilities. Sorry.
Heck of a start by Madritsch tonight.
I just finished recording my interview with Pat Dillon to air on the Aquasox pregame show tonight. We touch on the trade deadline, the Future Forty, Matt Tuiasosopo, and the future of Gil Meche. Feel free to listen live tonight at 6:40 p.m. pacific time and stick around for Tui’s debut in the Northwest League. He’s starting at DH tonight, hitting 6th, and has been driving the ball all over the park in BP.
Also, tomorrow is Jay Buhner bobblehead night, and Bone will be in attendance, so you’ve got another great reason to head up to Everett Memorial Stadium and checking out the frogs.
I don’t like your new boxscore page layout. Specifically, that the links to other boxscores are now across the top rather than down the side… since they’re not real “links,” you can’t tell which ones you’ve already seen. That is all.
Hey, all — I know permalinks are broken and I don’t know why. In short blogger isn’t generating the archive pages even though, as I stare at the settings pages, it absolutely should be doing so… but doesn’t.
So we may be deploying the new site engine sooner than I’d thought, because this is exactly the kind of thing that made me want to move off blogger. In the meantime, I apologize for the inconvenience.
Since it appears that the Justin Upton phenomenon has swept through the blogosphere since I mentioned him back in June, I figure you all might be interested in actually getting a look at him yourself. He’s participating in the AFLAC Classic High School All-Star game in Maryland tomorrow night and the game will be televised Sunday on Fox Sports Net. Times vary by region, so check your local listings.
Matt Tuiasosopo has gotten the call to Everett and is expected to be in the line-up for tonight’s game. If you haven’t been to an Aquasox game yet, you’re missing out on some good talent, and Tui just adds to the roster. Get thee to the park.
