Pontius Learns From Inconsistent Season
It has been a season of ups and downs for Lake County right-handed reliever Mike Pontius. A Jekll and Hyde kind of year.
"It has been a good season," said Pontius in a recent interview. "Lots of ups and downs, and it has been a very good learning experience. It has been both tough and good, but that is what baseball is about."
Pontius started the year in Lake County and through nine...

Kinston Falls 8-4
Potomac scored seven runs in the top of the third inning, going on to beat Kinston 8-4 Monday night at Historic Grainger Stadium.
The Nationals sent 12 men to the plate in the third inning, getting seven hits and seven runs against Kinston starter Kelvin De La Cruz. De La Cruz (3-2) was uncharacteristically wild, walking a season high five batters through 2 2/3 innings...

Got a few e-mails asking why Eric Berger was removed suddenly from the game yesterday.
Berger has an oblique strain and is day-to-day. He injurred himself in the early stages of the game while trying to field a bunt. Given our experience with this injury to players on the major league roster, I'd say that since there are only about 3 weeks left in the season (including playoffs) his season...

For all you Buffalo fans, while it has easily been a forgettable season you will get a good treat this week. DH Travis Hafner is scheduled to make two plate appearances and 2B Josh Barfield will play six innings or get three at bats (whichever comes first) on Monday night in Buffalo. Catcher Victor Martinez is scheduled to catch six innings on Tuesday night. The extent of their stay is unknown, but...

With the Indians signing of fifth rounder RHP Zach Putnam yesterday, I thought I would take the time to provide some thoughts on him. I was able to get into contact with an amateur scout for an AL club this morning and this is what he had to say about him:

Wow, Indians have signed Bryce Stowell, T.J. House and now Zach Putnam. I guess they really did use some of that Byrd savings to sign these guys. I am not sure I understand why they would need to do that, but alas they have signed three top end prospects.
Also, C Wyatt Toregas went on the disbaled list with elbow inflammation and C Armando Camacaro was activated.

Per a report at, 16th round pick pitcher T.J. House has signed with the Indians. He is enroute to Cleveland to take a physical, and once he checks out he is supposed to officially sign on Friday. He reportedly will sign for $1 million. This is a big signing by the Indians, and with all these high profile signings the last few days with Fedroff, Stowell and a few others rumored to be close...
