Hoiles Remains With Revolution: Last week there were reports that York Revolution manager Chris Hoiles was in the running for the vacant Baltimore Orioles first base coach position. That position has since gone to another former bird, John Shelby. It looks like, for now, Hoiles will be back in 2008. – Scott Stanchak
Offerman Sentenced To Probation; Klein Says He Can Return: Jose Offerman, who attacked Matt Beech and John Nathans with a bat in an August 14th incident, was placed on two years probation.
If Offerman doesn’t violate his probation, the two felony assault charges against him will be removed from his record.
According to The Connecticut Post, Offerman’s lawyer told the court that Atlantic League Executive Director Joe Klein has “offered to allow Offerman to return.”
If that’s to be believed, Offerman’s suspension went from being indefinite to roughly a month or so. But it’s hard to believe that any team would be stupid enough to bring Offerman in, so that suspension just might be indefinite after all. – Mike Ashmore
