Navarrete Gone: The Long Island Ducks — and entire league — lost a truly great player Monday, as Ray Navarrete signed a contract to play for Tabasco in Mexico.
This season, Navarrate was playing some of the best ball of his career. In 39 games, he was batting .362 with 11 home runs and 40 RBI. He was among the league’s Top 2 in most offensive categories, including home runs and runs scored (39).
Navarrete’s last stint with a major league organization came just a few years back with the New York Mets. Hopefully this will lead to something as well.
Past & Near Future: I want to apologize for not writing as much as I normally do in recent weeks. I’ve been extremely busy and Mike has done a great job, as usual, taking charge. I know he’s busy with his own projects, but we’ll continue doing what we do best, as best we can. Please keep posting any news you hear on the message board — look at all you ALB contributors — we appreciate it. Thanks! – Scott Stanchak
