Josh Stevens VS.
Pick Your Own Section Night: Actually, it’s “Guilty Pleasure Night” at Somerset. There are maybe 18 people here for the first game, and that’s a shame, because this will be one of the better pitching matchups you’ll see in this league…
UPDATED: Patriots win 3-0 in game one. Adams gets his 13th win, setting a single-season team record. Stevens goes six innings for a complete game loss.
Further Suspensions Announced: The Atlantic League has announced that Bridgeport P Matt Beech and Long Island C Jared Price have been suspended three and two games, respectively.
The pitcher involved in a benches-clearing incident is frequently suspended, and it’s hardly a big deal considering he’s a starter and will not miss an outing.
Whether your opinion is that it’s fair or unfair, understand that it has absolutely, positively no effect on anything other than Beech’s wallet.
What you should know, however, is that a league memo is posted in clubhouses around the league stating the fines and other consequences from being involved in a physical incident. With that said, there may have been more of a fine for Beech and Price than just the corresponding amount of games they’ll miss.
UPDATED: People often get buried in the sand on the beach. Jared Price, however, was suspended for two games for burying Matt Beech into the ground, tackling him during the Jose Offerman scuffle. So, for those wondering why Price was suspended, that’s why.
Other ideas for the joke in that story involved “The Price Is Right,” “Life’s a Beech” and something involving ESPN’s “Jacked Up” segment.
Camden Additions: In about ten days, Camden’s going to make some additions to their roster. Stay tuned for some familiar faces…
Baker Coming For NFL Night: Stephen Baker the Touchdown Maker will be making an appearance in Somerset in tomorrow as part of NFL Night. Baker played on the 1990 Super Bowl Champion New York Giants.
Hope he likes my Walter Payton jersey…
Seinfeld Night, Part Two: On May 19th, the Newark Bears held “Seinfeld Night.”
Now, they’ve signed Kramer.
P Sean Kramer, that is.
Kramer is a Yankees draft pick who spent one season in their organization, pitching in 12 games for Single-A Staten Island in 2004.
In 2005, he played for New Haven of the Can-Am League, and has split this season between the American Association, the Can-Am League and Northern League.
He’s a 24-year-old lefty who attended Iona. He’ll also get stuck with the nickname of “Cosmo” in the Atlantic League video game.
Lockwood Locked Out: The Camden Riversharks have parted ways with P Luke Lockwood. – Mike Ashmore, mashmore98 AT gmail.com
