I wanted to wait until the Triple-A and Double-A games were over to add a final post for the night, but the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre game is now in the 10th inning and the Trenton game is still going in the 12th.
The big news, of course, is Andy Pettitte. After four innings in Trenton, Pettitte reported no problems and said he’ll travel down here to Texas to meet with Dave Eiland and figure out what’s next.
A few minor notes from the day.
• As I write this, Scranton/Wilkes-Barre has just taken a 5-4 lead on Kevin Russo’s RBI single in the 10th. Reid Gorecki scored the run after getting his third stolen base of the night. You think someone told him about Freddy Guzman getting that call-up last year?
• Trenton’s game is still scoreless in the 12th. Wonder how many people showed up for Pettitte and gave up long before the end.
• Team USA announced its Pan-Am qualifying roster. It includes Scranton/Wilkes-Barre lefty Royce Ring.
• Hideki Matsui says he wants to play again next year, but he probably won’t be in Anaheim.
