Why I don't sign Mike Lowell

Rafael Chaves was named Triple-A Scranton’s new pitching coach, taking over for Dave Eiland. Eiland, as you know, will OFFICIALLY be named the Yanks’ pitching coach any minute now. There, happy now Ben?

AzFL Peoria (5-3 loss to Mesa) there’s 12 games left in the Javelinas’ season
Brett Gardner: 1 for 4, 1 3B, 1 BB, 1 K – he’s hitting .365, but he’s got only 2 XBH…and they’re both triples
Juan Miranda: 1 for 4, 1 BB, 1 K

HWB Honolulu had a scheduled off day. There’s only 13 games left in the Sharks’ season.

Update: I’m not sure if any of you follow college baseball, but if you do then you know that Oregon has resurrected it’s baseball program after a two decade hiatus, and will begin play in 2009. Baseball America will have a monthy feature following coach George Horton as he tries to build the program up from scratch. Check it out, it should make for some interesting reading.

    Er, Mike, my post below this one says that the coaching staff with Eiland is pretty much official. Cashman’s just hammering out the money with those guys. It’s no secret anymore.

    Any day now. Officially, any day now. Just sign on the dotted line, Mr. Eiland. :)

    i would think they would promote someone from within since they have a certain philosophy going as opposed to bringing someone in from another organization.

    How with all that speed does gardner not have more xbh? Do defenses play him differently at all? at some point he has to be able to actually get the ball into a gap.
