THIS AND THAT
The Tigers need to win tonight or the season is over. Let’s hope it goes seven to extend the baseball season for a few more days….Is it me or did the national media make a major case out of Kenny Rogers pine tar incident. Not that we have any knowledge of wrong doing with pitchers in the minor leagues, but has anyone ever looked at or touched a catchers shin guard or chest protector and wondered why its sticky??? And if Tony LaRussa makes a major case out of it, wouldn’t that prevent his pitchers from doing the same? Even our own Bud Poliquin had to be schooled by Steve Grilli on radio this week on what he did back in the 70′s…..Minor league free agents were announced this week and the Blue Jays have 19 players eligable. Names of interest who could play elsewhere include Mike MaHoney, Luis Figueroa, Wayne Lydon, Ben Howard, Rodney Ormond, Adrian Burnside and Kevin Barker. Figueroa would like to return in 2007. Lydon and Barker might move on. Next week we will publish players we might want to see in Syracuse that are available….”Inside Pitch” airs tomorrow (Saturday October 28th) at 9:00 AM on ESPN Radio 1260 AM. Guest include Tigers pitcher Jason Grilli and Major League Baseball Executive Vice President, Baseball Operation Jimmie Lee Solomon from the commissioners office. We will also have time to talk World Series, hopefully game 6, turf vs grass, and major league affiliations…..Inside Pitch is also the lead in for Syracuse University vs Louisville pre-game show hosted by Matt Park…Our weekly Football prediction Syracuse 17 Cincinnati 16……Pop Warner football invades Alliance Bank Stadium this weekend. Friday-Sunday over 12 games will be played by area Pop Warner teams….Have a great Weekend….
