IRONPIGS TODAY: “Bats Need Alarm Clock” 6/29/2016

“I never blame myself when I’m not hitting. I just blame the bat and if it keeps up, I change bats.”

Pigs lost 1-0.  Thankful the rain held off, but not an exciting game so much.  I did stay until the end, however.

After losing two in a row to the Clippers, the Pigs drop to FOURTH place in the division.  I know, alphabetical and ties, but the Bisons will not go away.  It’s tough in the IL North.

Nick Williams was held out of last night’s game–and you’ve likely read all the “hot takes” on that by now.  It’s still bothering me–and not in the way you might think.  I’ll try to find time to write, but for now, we could use his bat in the lineup.


Columbus sends their ace, top prospect RHP Mike Clevinger (7-0, 2.81) a 25-year old Floridian, to face IronPigs veteran David Buchanan (4-4, 4.54).   Buck has been solid the last couple times out, as he’s mostly been able to avoid the big inning; we’ll see how he responds to facing the prospect Clevinger.

First Pitch: 7:05PM; Gates 5:45PM; Club 5:30PM


There’s a “clock in  a can” or maybe a “can in a clock” or something like that.  It’s for the kiddos.

It’s “Jewish Heritage Night.”

It’s “Ladies Night.”

Good seats still remain for this game, on a beautiful night for baseball we expect a significant walk-up.

Kram’s Korner:

I believe in Nick Williams, Dave Brundage and that the Phillies are handling their prospects properly.  I believe in rain at night, good scotch and blues-based hard rock music.  I believe Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone.  I believe JP Crawford will be just fine.  I believe artificial turf should be outlawed, and in opening presents Christmas morning rather than Christmas Eve and I believe in long weekends which last at least three days.


See you at the park, and let’s hope those clocks have an alarm to wake up the bats,
