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

Let’s hope common sense prevails here and they view Offerman as a liability rather than an asset.

Surely Long Island can find another ex-MLBer to fill his cleats at short. I hear ARod is looking for work….

I dunno… I’d much rather have a team full of “up and coming” or at least “still have a shot” guys than a bunch of almost 40 year old has beens who are grasping at straws to stay in the game. Part of being good at your job is knowing when you no longer are.
