AL Quotebook: With Long Island Ducks P John Halama and Bridgeport Bluefish P Matt Perisho.

Halama on pitching in Boston: “Baseball is baseball. You put difficulty on yourself. It’s a great city, it’s just baseball rich. The fans were great, it didn’t matter what time the game was, we were sold out. The year before, they won the World Series, so it made it that much more fun to be a part of the Red Sox organization with all the hype of winning it and possibly going out and repeating it.

Halama on if expectations were raised in Boston after their World Series win: No, not really. They spoke about the curse in years before, but now that they won, the curse was over. It was just that we were going out there to win it all again, and that was the mindset. It’s the same thing as the Yankees, they go in with the mindset that we have a chance to win the World Series, and it’s the same thing with the Red Sox.”

Perisho on why he came to the Atlantic League: “It’s an opportunity to get healthy, to get back in shape after a terrible, horrendous spring. I want to show that I can still get left-handed hitters out, and that I’m healthy.”

Perisho on his last big league pitches, which came in his one-game, one batter stint with the Red Sox in 2005: It does kind of make you bitter, but at the same time, I was a victim of circumstance with (Gabe) Kapler’s injury and having no outfielders on the roster.”

“If that’s the last big league batter I face, then that would suck. But I’m going to do my damndest to make sure it isn’t the last.”

Well, He Tried…: Pat Mahomes, who was traded by the Ducks this off-season to the Bluefish, tried to come to Bridgeport. Unfortunately, there was no room for him. Check this out.

Redman Named IL POTW: (PR) TIKE REDMAN has exploded on to the International League scene in his first week of action during the 2007 season. Redman was signed as a free agent by the Baltimore Orioles on Tuesday, May 15, and immediately assigned to Norfolk. Redman has appeared in eight full games since joining the Tides, hitting safely in every one. (He was also 0-2 in the completion of a suspended game played Saturday). Overall for the week, Redman hit .481 (13-27) with a pair of stolen bases and 12 runs scored. He led the International League in both hits and runs during the timeframe, and posted the 2nd highest batting average. His three triples this week also led the IL, and tied Redman with Mike Cervenak and Brandon Fahey for the most three-baggers on the Tides for the entire season. Redman enjoyed four multiple-hit games this week, including an amazing 3-3 effort with four runs scored against Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Friday night.

30-year-old Tike Redman is in his 12th season as a professional player. He was a member of the Pittsburgh organization for the first ten years, playing 392 games with the Pirates between 2000 and 2005. Last year Redman hit .253 in 79 games with Toledo before being released in late July. He finished the season at Double-A Corpus Christi as a member of the Houston organization. Redman began the 2007 season with the York Revolution of the Independent Atlantic League, hitting .411 in seven games before being signed by the Orioles. Redman is a native of Tuscaloosa, AL.

Mike and Scott, you guys have certainly stepped up your game this season. Keep up the good work.

Thanks Kend. I certainly have to give most of the credit to Mike. Now that I’m off on several other ventures, he’s the one covering the league full time.

As always, leave any feedback or suggestions and we’ll be glad to respond.

Also, right now we have several thousand visitors a day. If anyone knows a business that might be interested in advertising here, we’re going to have a spot opening up very soon.

Former Major Leaguer Danny Bautista played with the Revolution today. Any idea who was removed from the roster? Also, why is the Revolution playing their games in Camden instead of Lancaster? Great job on the website. It’s good to have a place to go to where you can get information.

Looooooooove how I got a press release on this one. No idea.

Honestly, if AL teams don’t want to help us out by publishing their transactions, why should I even bother helping them by publicizing them?

The guy played in the World Series, and he just magically appears without a mention. Love it.
