Well, we’ll see how big they really are, won’t we. But these Pigs aren’t going quietly–time to make some NOISE:
- Grady Sizemore is in the IronPigs clubhouse and on the lineup card, but won’t start tonight. He’s available, I’d assume.
- Russ Canzler, the PA Native and former RailRider, was signed and his batting cleanup tonight as DH.
- Jason Marquis is in the IronPigs clubhouse and will start tomorrow’s game.
- Rusty Ryal sent to Reading to make room. Another move will need to be made for Marquis, tomorrow, I’d assume.
Reading moves, which may impact indirectly:
- LHP Ryan Demmin promoted from Clearwater to Reading
- LHP Jesse Biddle to Temporary Inactive List
- OF Jiwan James released
Here’s what we think, over in Kram’s Korner:
- Signing ex-Railriders could give us inside info in order to acquire the much-desired IronRail Trophy. (kidding)
- Sorry to hear about Jiwan James. I always kinda liked him.
- I hope all is OK with Biddle. Could be he just needs a break, or rest. Given his performance lately, it’s also possible he’s dealing with some kind of undisclosed injury. Here’s hoping it’s all minor, and that he’s back to good, soon.
- I say get Sizemore out there! What are we waiting for? We’ve only got him until July 13 at the latest. Let’s go! (it’s all good. Whatever’s best for the team/player. I’m kidding. mostly.)
See you at the game tonight,
…leaning Phillies for Saturday…
