Kill The Joe... But First - the Shuckers!



An article on AL.com states the city of Huntsville will demolish Joe Davis Stadium. Hidden in it is the admission that the Shuckers will indeed open the season in Huntsville for an undetermined number of games. Maybe even as much as the full season that the lease deems.

Not surprised they will tear down the Joe, there have been many who have volunteered for the job. At the same time, the Shuckers front office is calling 2015 the year that baseball returns to Biloxi.


BANDITS HAVE FAMILIAR FACES

The Brisbane Bandits of the Australian league are led by Brady Williams, as seen in last weeks post, but it also features four Tampa Rays who were StoneCrabs last summer. The top half of the Bandits batting order could well be the top half of the Biscuits opening day lineup also.


MONTOYO PROMOTED
1st Skitz Skipper Montoyo
Durham will be seeking a new manager after former Biscuits skipper Charlie Montoyo was given a post as the 3rd Base Coach for Tampa. It made me wonder if Billy Gardner Jr would have stayed around if he had known there would be a possible promotion in just one more year.
