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....

Defs lose 7-3 and the 4 game winning streak is snapped

as the Bowie BaySox take advantage of four Connecticut errors and come back after trailing 3-1. I'm not recapping this one because (a) I have concerns about my blood pressure and (b) it's a long season and you're bound to have a stinker once in a while. Having said that, I'm real curious how Bien reacts to this loss with Wednesday's lineup because they're some guys on this team who can't field their positions. And with an offense that that's dead last in league offense you can't give away any runs to the other team because you're offense most likely isn't getting them back.

Misc fan notes: Good to see Justin Hedrick back on the mound after a week off as he throws a shutout inning. Jason Waddell throws a perfect 9th as his comeback continues to progress well. Really thought Matos was going to lose it tonight.
Not a lot of folks in the stands tonight; where's that global warming?
Back at the park Wednesday; Connecticut needs win that game and take both series on this homestand; especially after taking the Phillies 3 of 4.

I couldn't do the game tonight but it reads like the bad news bears.
What happen.
Bein has his hands tied as to who plays certin time and positions fot the first month or so but I am sure with the daily reports he is making his case to the brass.

Aah, minor league baseball!

It's difficult to recall all the misplays last night, but two are etched in my "pea brain." First, Witter dropping the foul pop. That opened the flood gates and the ball game quickly became history. But the one that bothers me more is Copelands. The ball was clearly EME's, but because he dogged it (again) and Copeland busts his "stones" coming a long way, tries for a diving catch, and it drops out of his glove, he gets the E. This play was EME's screw up from the start and he should either get the E (and the Hell with baseball tradition) or it should have been a hit.

Catching is a problem right now with neither candidate being strong defensively, but there are alternatives for the outfield and I sure hope Bien exercises his options tonight.

Greg, nice gesture recognizing the batboy. He does deserve it.

trey webb is on his way to phoenix to begin pitching. they have been really impressed with him pitching in the bullpen this year and think he is a great prospect to convert from shortstop to pitcher. he has a real gift with his arm. he will probably be in phoenix for two to three weeks and then begin pitching somewhere. my guess is he will start in san jose and if he does well move up from there. wish him luck.
