Respect my prioritahs!
1. The big news over there in Allentown is that Daisuke Matsuzaka is going to rehab-pitch for Pawtucket tomorrow. It has eclipsed practically all other game coverage. Thanks a lot, news sources!
2. Big giant Iron Pigs clubber Val Pascucci was released by the team back in April, due to lack of clobbering. He's since been signed by the Mets and is playing for the New Orleans Zephyrs (AAA). His swing has reheated in the PCL.
See you tomorrow.
