|Bulls newest RP|
Departing for Durham is the aforementioned Jake Thompson and Jim Patterson, now we can add Braulio Lara to the list as the Rays continue to adjust rosters at the cost of Biscuit victories.
Matt Ramsey comes off the DL to join the bullpen, and offers hope at the tail end of games if he can get his strikeout pitch working like it was before the injury. Through three innings this year the Knoxville native has punched out six.
KEEP HANGIN ON
While the Skitz still hold a share of the top spot in the South Division, tied with Mobile, its hard to see Montgomery holding on after the changes we have seen in the past ten days. While a hot April sent the team to the top, the team has just three wins in the last thirteen games, making that Friday rainout look like a mercy mission.
I wish I could predict good things for the Biscuits, but the next homestand vs the Huntsville Stars (24-12, 1st place North Division) and the Mississippi Braves (18-17, one game out of 1st in South Division) will be a huge test for a team that has seen its best hitter replaced with Jeremy Moore and its durable veteran bullpen reduced to relying on arms that have less than three years experience each. It could be a long month of May in Montgomery.
One of my personal favorite oddities occurred this date in history for Montgomery. On the same week that the first Mothers Day was celebrated.
MAY 10 1908
Montgomery and Shreveport play 15 innings to a tie, 3-3. Not unusual in the era before lighted fields but its what happens the following day that makes it special.
|Your 1908 Montgomery Senators|
Montgomery and Shreveport AGAIN play 15 innings ending in a tie, 1-1. Thats right, 30 innings in two days and no victories or losses. Incredible!
