Pride sign pitcher: The Nashua Pride have signed P Dave Lipson, according to an article by The Courier News’ Geoff Mosher. Lipson, who attended URI and missed all of 2004 due to injury, is a 6′ 1″, 220 pound pitcher who pitched as a reliever for the majority of his short college career.

Scott Patterson Update: Former Barnstormers P Scott Patterson (Not pictured) has pitched well for the Gateway Grizzlies of the Frontier League ever since being traded there. He’s 1-0 with a 1.23 ERA in 15 appearances. With the Frontier League regular season ending September 5th, could a return by Luke Danes’ alter ego be in the works? We shall see.

On a potentially more serious note, with the Atlantic League running about a month longer than other independent leagues, I think it’s entirely possible you might see some guys from those leagues show up in this one during the September stretch drive. I don’t have any names yet, but with teams trades with other leagues increasing, it seems like sure a sure bet that at least one team will give this a shot in a week or two.

Pearson signs with Orioles: Former Nashua Pride P Jason Pearson would have been a great boost to the Pride’s beleaguered pitching staff. The Red Sox had released him in mid-August, and he was out of work for about 10 days. But that all changed when the Orioles signed him and sent him to Double-A Bowie. It’s possible that Pearson would return after their season is over, but Nashua doesn’t need help later…they need it now.

Archives Updated: I added some information to the archives, including 1998 All-Star Game score, game MVP and home run hitting contest winner(s). Also, 1998 League MVP, Pitcher of the Year and Manager of the Year info has been added. If anyone has any info to fill in the gaps that we still have, please send it along.

Affiliation Update: I’m probably going to hold off on this one until around September 1st or so. I suspect you’ll see a few AL alums getting some big league time, so I want to make it as timely as possible – Mike Ashmore
