Thoughts and pictures of my local minor league baseball team the New York Penn League Connecticut Tigers; a Detriot farm team. We'll still be looking at former Navigators/Defenders players along the way....

Why not Jake?

"Manager Bruce Bochy told the San Jose Mercury News that there is a "legitimate" chance that Brian Bocock could open the season as the Giants' starting shortstop.

With Omar Vizquel on the shelf until at least mid-April, the 23-year-old Bocock has emerged as a surprising contender for the Giants' shortstop gig. Bocock has no experience above Single-A and has batted just .241/.311/.334 during his minor-league career, so he'd need his defense to sustain him at the big-league level."

This is from from March 8, 2008. Are the Giants really a MLBB team?

I'd say it's because Jake doesn't belong in the big leagues, but right now, neither does Bocock. Unless they decide to suck up the bad defense and put Velez there, I find it hard to believe that anyone currently wearing black and orange will be the starter on opening day.

Don't count out Minicozzi somewhere down the road. If he gets in a groove he could provide some punch and has a good glove and arm also.

Today's New London Day has an article updating all the changes for the new season. I won't bother with the detail, but the $2.00 parking fee is in, the sprinklers should be set, and the restroom work will begin soon!

And, surprisingly, even the Bulletin has a Def article. More propaganda then detail, but they seem to be awakening.

Do the changes have anything to do with the emergency alarms going off during the Eastern League All-Star Game? Because that was interesting.

saw the Bulletin article; it was like a press release.
The fire sprinkler work and the alarms during the All-Star Game I think are related.
