Al Benjamin Tomorrow: OF Al Benjamin will be stopping by tomorrow at 2PM to answers fans questions. Be there.

Keith Ramsey Article: Click here for an article on what Patriots P Keith Ramsey’s been up to these days.

Speaking of articles, I’m hoping to have an off-season notebook in the January 25th edition of the Hunterdon County Democrat. Keep your eyes peeled.

Jones Gets Gig: Chris Jones, who spent two relatively unsuccessful seasons as the manager of the Newark Bears, has been named the new manager of the Single-A Kannapolis Intimidators. The Intimidators, a White Sox affiliate, have sent a few players to the Atlantic League, including former Patriots P Dan Mozingo.

Speaking of The Bears: They formally named Wayne Krenchicki as their new manager today. His next win will be his 900th in minor league baseball. Steve Foucault also got the official nod as their new pitching coach.

Fun With The American Association:

ST. PAUL SAINTS-Purchased the contract of RHP Jamie Tricoglou from St. Joseph.

SHREVEPORT SPORTS-Agreed to terms with INF Enohel Polanco.

Both players used to play for the Surf. Tricoglou’s name came up in a conversation with one official of a current AL team, but it looks like another team has plans for him instead. – Mike Ashmore, mashmore@patriotsbaseball.com

CJ was always good to me, so I don’t have anything negative to say about him from that side of things.

However, he wasn’t the most popular guy in the clubhouse. I think this is a move that took a lot of people by surprise, but I wish him the best of luck down in Earnhardt-land.

Isn’t it nice that the American Association uses the daily ‘transactions’ section of the USA Today and other papers to promote their league and players? I just don’t understand why the Atlantic League doesn’t do the same. Heck, the Can-Am and United League also have their transactions in the paper today. And I know, I know, I know that the Atlantic League puts some things on the wire, but they DON’T do it to the extent of the other leagues. And this is why Mike Ashmore and Scott Stanchak are so important to the AL.

“And this is why Mike Ashmore and Scott Stanchak are so important to the AL.”

The next time you see this quote will be on my tombstone.

In all seriousness, Atlantic League transactions do sometimes appear in the paper, as you said. I have a pretty loose grip on how this works, but here goes…

Upon the completion of a transaction the involved team(s) will pass along the information to the AP. The AP then sends a daily list of transactions to any paper or entity that requests it for publication in the following day’s paper. The specific paper can pick and choose which transactions they choose to print.

As far as I know, the complete list is always available online.

What I don’t know is whether it’s the responsibility of the team or the league to report to the AP.

So the point of all that is…if you’re looking for someone to blame, I wouldn’t know where to point you.
