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 5 Curve 3 as Connecticut stops 3 game slide..

tonight in Altoona. Adam Cowart improves to 5-3 (3.41 ERA) going 6 IP allowing one run on 6 hits and fanning 5. Carlos Sosa breaks out of his slump going 3 for 5 with a double and a pair of RBIs. TI stays hot hitting 2 doubles in three trips. Adam Wittter knocks in a run going 2 for 4. Bien has Jake in the leadoff spot tonight and he gets knocks in an insurance run in the eight. Kyle Haines gets the other RBI with a run scoring tripe. Connecticut steals five bases in the game; two each for AR and TI and one for Jake.

Misc fan notes: Continue to vote for Joey Martinez!

Being here on the left coast, I don't get to see Connecticut games. So, what the hell happened to TI? He was just about given up for dead and now he's hitting? What happened?

Not to take anything away from his results this season to date but the fact that it's the third time around in Double A can't be overlooked. I went back to look at the pictures I've taken of him over the last three seasons and the stance is the same.
Off the field perhaps the realization that time is moving along has motivated him some. He's very much into his faith as well.
Back on the field his glove has always been top notch despite whatever his going on at the plate.
How "space" is made at Fresno remains to be seen if everyone at all levels remain injury free.

TI has explained his turnaround by just relaxing and not worrying about stuff he can't control. This change in attitude is much the same as Nate when he went on his tear a couple of years ago. The big question with TI is can he maintain a decent performance from here on out.

If TI was a 20th round pick everyone would love him. He is coming around, and as was stated earlier he is petty good with the leather.

I did vote fo Carp though, he's batting .350 and had a gand slam today, game is in a delay and not official.

Cowart picked off my buddy Ant Webster, I forgot to warn him about that. Cowart must be among the league leaders in that department. Webster was a texas league all star last year- he's having a little bit of an off year this year.
