In our continuing effort to bring you the latest news on Trenton RHP Alfredo Aceves, this from Thunder marketing director Eric Lipsman:
Alfredo flew his girlfriend in from Mexico yesterday and tonight proposed to her before the game while she was sitting in the stands at Waterfront Park. It was shown on the scoreboard and she said yes.
Meanwhile, a reader from Monterrey, Mexico, writes to tell us that when he played for Sultanes, Aceves was known as El Paton.
I have no idea whether this guy can help the Yankees. But it would be a good story if he gets a shot.
