Celebrity Schmoll: Sometimes I wonder why people dislike me. Then I look back and see some of these stupid headlines I write, and I figure it out.

Anyway, York has signed former big league P Steve Schmoll and P Matt Trent.

Schmoll was one of the last cuts by the Mets this spring, and has 48 MLB appearances under his belt, all in 2005 with the Dodgers. He went 2-2 with a 5.01 ERA.

Trent is a 25-year-old with experience in the Cardinals and Rockies systems. A reliever, he’s 6-5 with a 2.71 ERA and 10 saves in 105 appearances. He’s never been above A-Ball.

Camden’s Sacking Up: A handy-dandy league source reports that Camden has agreed to terms with Darren Sack. Sack has a 20-22 career minor league record and a 4.82 ERA. He has spent his four-year career in the Giants organization, and topped out at Double-A last year.

Carl Everett Making Friends: Now, I’m not going to link to it, because it features 10 f-bombs (I counted) and two occurences of a word that looks mysteriously like “shirt” but isn’t.

But if you go to a popular website, we’ll call it Deadspin, there’s an interesting post detailing a 2003 exchange between Long Island OF Carl Everett and one of the Texas Rangers beat writers.

Rather obviously, Carl doesn’t come across real great here. However, I’ve gotta say…I didn’t have any issues with the guy last year. Not the easiest interview I’ve ever had, certainly…but he was willing to talk and answer everything honestly, and he wasn’t a jerk in any way, shape or form.

Regardless, if you can handle some coarse language, it’s an interesting read. Every reporter has probably been in a crappy situation like that (I can think of at least two for me, but not quite like that one…) so it’s a peek inside my job as well.

Fun With Not So Fun Transactions: Long Island’s Cory Bailey was cut by the Cubs. Houston released Newark alum Harold Eckert. Road Warriors INF Gabe Suarez didn’t make it in Pittsburgh. – Mike Ashmore

NY Times A.L. Article: Here’s an article in the New York Times this week about minor league baseball in New Jersey. It’s nice to see them feature the Somerset Patriots at the top, instead of the Trenton Thunder and other teams, for a change. The piece also talks about the Bergen Cliff Hawks. – Scott Stanchak

I went to a AA game in Harrisburg(Nationals) between the Senators and Erie Seawolves(tigers).

To my surprise the starting pitcher for Harrisburg was Bobby Brownlie former pitcher for the Newark Bears.

Although he didn’t get the win his stat line was 7IP 5 Hits 1ER along with 2 strike outs. He also face 25 batters

Speaking of headlines, you could have gone with “Sharks Get Some Sack”, but this is a family show.
