Someone Should Sign This Guy: Sioux City of the American Association has released former Atlantic League P Brad Guy. Guy was 2-7 with a 3.49 ERA for the team, and did not have a start all season that was under 6.1 innings.

Seems like someone the Newark Bears could really use right now, a solid veteran pitcher who can eat up some innings…

Betts To Edmonton: You know those pressurized tubes they have at the drive-through of your local bank? You put your paycheck in the little capsule, hit the button and voila…it goes to the teller.

Clearly, such a tube runs from Bridgewater, N.J. to Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.

After seeing Ryan Radmanovich, Mike Johnson and George Sandel leave the team for the Edmonton Cracker Cats of the Northern League, a fourth ex-Patriot is making the jump.

Todd Betts, who last played for the Patriots during their 2005 championship season, has signed with the Cracker Cats and was to be activated for last night’s game.

When’s Kevin Nicholson going over there? Might as well reunite the whole gang.

If you’re curious, Johnson was recently converted to a starter and has had three outings that were the opposite of good out of six. His ERA has jumped up an entire run (4.85 to 5.86) since joining the rotation.

Made Man? Not Quite: The Bridgeport Bluefish have released C Kelington Made, hardly surprising because they had four catchers with the signing of Sandy Aracena. It was a signing that made him expendable. See what I did there?

Anyway, the move is still a little odd. Made was hitting .300 with four RBI in seven games, while John Nathans has been with the team all season and is hitting .201.

Am I saying that Made is a better player than Nathans? Absolutely not. I’m just saying I think it was a more difficult decision than they might have anticipated when Made was originally signed.

Dryer Activated: The York Revolution have activated INF Matt Dryer from the disabled list today, several weeks after suffering a rib injury. – Mike Ashmore

Radmanovich was alsways on of my favorite Patriots and also had a nice moment for Canada in the World Baseball tournament. I am surprised he is not doing better for Edmonton, though it looks like he was injured for about 20 games.

Sandel is a surprise, hitting .325ish.

Looks like Brownlie already made his debut last night for Akron, going 3 relief innings and giving up 2 runs. He’ll move into the rotation from now on.

Radmanovich did not join the team until the middle of June

Anyone list the injuries for somerset and long island

Made may have hit well, but he was a sloppy infielder. He played third or dh’d more than he caught. He was brought in mainly during that initial period when we first lost Baez and Rojas was day-to-day with his injury.
