Murray To Somerset On Hold: Things look no closer than where they were a week ago; however, it appears that power hitter Glenn Murray could still end up in Somerset. A source close to Murray said that the outfielder would still like to play and his retirement earlier this season was “involuntary.”

Who Wants A Power Hitter?: What would any contender like to add to their team down the stretch run? How about a former major league hitter with massive power. According to a source who spoke to someone close to former Baltimore Orioles and Kansas City Royals designated hitter/first baseman Calvin Pickering, the big guy is looking for work. Who wants in? – Scott Stanchak

Long Island Duck Rob Cafiero has pitched 5.2 innings of scoreless baseball over the last three days.
He pitched 2 scoreless innings on Tuesday, definitely the best Duck pitching performance that night. Tonight he pitched another 3.2 scoreless innings to finish the game. Thing is, he’s not a pitcher, hes the teams first baseman. Rob has a nice knuckleball and a heart of gold. We here on Long Island are hoping he gets a start sometime soon.

The guy deserves some playing time, that’s for sure. If pitching’s his key the lineup, more power to him.

He should get a start. The team could eliminate the DH and let him hit, too.

He only has 55 at bats, but his average is .345. He is an all around team player.

Rob Cafiero deserves his shot at a start. He has proven his dedication to the team and it’s time that Don McCormack recognize this and give him a start. He comes to the park every day willing and eager to do whatever the team needs him to do (unlike some of the prima donnas that have been in and out of the line-up this season). Since he’s a knuckleballer, he can pitch just about every day. He stands a better chance of going longer in the game than some of the emergency starters that the Ducks are now sending out there. Most of those starters are relievers who are accustomed to pitching only one inning per game and who have not started games in 5 years. I would, however, not eliminate the DH if he gets a start. You can’t afford to take Bucky Jacobsen out of the line-up.

Cafiero has been a breath of fresh air on the mound- for those people still around at the end of the games that he gets into start feeling a bit better about the evening- by the way, what’s up with Juan(gone?)- he hasn’t even been at the ballpark the last 2 nights

Its been rumored that he’s gone home to deal with some personal issues and will rejoin the club shortly

I don’t recall seeing him last night, but he was there on Wednesday night. His major contribution that night was coaching first base for 3 innings.
