Melancon staying home


HWB Honolulu (5-1 loss to North Shore)
Austin Jackson: 1 for 4, 1 K – 2 for 19 with 8 K
Bradley Suttle: 0 for 4, 1 K – 0 for 13, but at least he’s only K’ed 3 times
George Kontos: 2.2 IP, 4 H, 4 R, 4 ER, 3 BB, 3 K, 4-1 GB/FB, 1 E (pickoff) – 93 baserunners & 45 runs allowed in 59.1 IP since July 9th
Anthony Claggett: 1 IP, zeroes, 1 K, 2-0 GB/FB – see, it’s not all bad

The Mark Melancon Saga is over, I stumbled across this mad old blog post at BA, which says:

The Honolulu Sharks switched Yankees relievers, getting righthander Anthony Claggett rather than righthander Mark Melancon, who is coming off elbow surgery.

I’m sure the elbow is okay, probably just playing it safe. Have to say though, I’m kinda disappointed.

    Torre’s arse is grass if the Yankees don’t win the ‘chip, according “The Boss”.

    Mike – you should start posting Austin Jackson’s name as Ajax again, maybe that will provide him with a slumpbuster

    Mike, I’m pretty sure it’s not his elbow. I think I remember reading that he has a sore back – I think it was on PP but I can’t find the link
