Borowski interview coming: I think you’ll be really surprised to see what current Devil Rays P Joe Borowski had to say about his time in the Atlantic League. I’ll have his interview up in the next day or two. Borowski was one of seven big leaguers I got to talk to during our trip to Baltimore, make sure you check out “The Cheap Seats with Scott Stanchak” on WDVR 89.7 FM on Tuesday from 6:30-7 PM for all the info.

Patriots, Riversharks fighting it out for best overall record: By virtue of their win tonight, the Patriots have pulled to within a half game of the Riversharks for the best overall record in the Atlantic League. Tonight’s victory was all the more surprising considering Camden starter Brett Laxton had won his last 11 starts (that has to be a record), his last 14 decisions and hadn’t lost since May. It’s looking more and more like Camden will be shut out of the playoffs, as they’re now 4 games behind the Surf for the division lead. Their only hope seems to be if Nashua wins the second half of the North Division, therefore creating a wild card spot.

10Q Update: In what will be my last Atlantic League interview of the season and possibly ever, I talked to Riversharks P Chris Fussell today. Make sure you check back in the off-season for our interview.

Nobody signed on playoff roster deadline day: Surprisingly, I haven’t heard of any teams making any moves yesterday. I think the biggest shocker was Somerset staying put. Their hands were pretty much tied with Derek Lee, Brian Tollberg and Dave Elder being offered contracts for 2006 by their current clubs, but not being able to get Brad Clontz back takes away a much needed boost to the bullpen.

Jennings inactive: In order to make room for the aforementioned big leaguer they signed, the Ducks deactivated Doug Jennings.

Article on an AL alum: I found an interesting, albeit old, article on former Somerset Patriot Desi Wilson on ESPN.com. Click here to check it out.

Good luck, Geoff!: Best of luck to The Courier-News’ Geoff Mosher, who has left the paper to take a job with a Delaware paper covering the Philadelphia Phillies full-time. I had the privilege of getting to know Geoff and getting to call him a friend over the past three seasons, and everyone’s very happy for him. It’s hard to think of someone more deserving of such an awesome promotion. A big league call-up, if you will.

Also, congratulations to Ryan Dunleavy, who will be taking over for Geoff. Ryan’s filled in for Geoff on his off days over the past season or two, and I was glad to see he got the gig. – Mike Ashmore
