Just landed in New York a little while ago and heard from a couple of friends back in Scranton.
This afternoon, Marcus Thames ran the bases at PNC Field. He went from home to first and home to second while several members of the Triple-A staff watched. I heard the word “sprints,” which suggests to me that he was able to run pretty hard.
Also, Donnie Collins points out that Dustin Moseley has an out in his contract that kicks in on July 1. Moseley has been pitching well and has some major league experience. With Sergio Mitre and Alfredo Aceves on the disabled list, Donnie makes a good point that Moseley could be an alternative to Chad Gaudin or Chan Ho Park as a multi-inning reliever.
