Toledo WINS! 4-3 in this televised matchup.
They played this game on NESN, and thanks, but no thanks. It was a really half-assed production probably assembled by NESN's B-Team. I could have done better with a camcorder and a karaoke microphone. I especially loved how they identified Bryan Corey as 'Ryan' Corey. Fuckers.
Pawtucket can't win a game to save their lives, although they won last night. There was a story in the paper about Hansen and Delcarmen being useless and unable to prevent runs from scoring. Hansen gets really bummed when other pitchers get called up and not him. I don't really feel bad for him, mostly because I think he is an asshole. Unfair, I know.
In other news, Javier Lopez got called up and is doing a great job. Craig Hansen, Pawtucket's other lefty, must be real steamed. In fact, I'm sure everyone down in AAA is in a very bad mood.
1. Kerry Robinson and Luis Jimenez have been released. I hope you guys enjoyed Rhode Island!
2. Hansack back in Pawtucket. Do you think he is fascinating? I sure do. A Nicaraguan lobsterman? I picture him out on his little boat with the nets and traps and no shoes on and a weathered cap and some scout with a laptop walking out on the pier as the seagulls scream overhead... and then the scout says, "You're a hard man to track down, Mr. Hansack."
3. I had some nice tickets to tomorrow night's game v. the Durham Bulls but I have to go away for a couple of days. To the Berkshires! Except I'll be working. I will be at Friday night's game, which is great because the Bulls only come to McCoy but once.
Happy belated Mother's Day!
