New, 83 comments

Hey look, an Open Thread! On time! I apologize for the screwy Open Thread's recently - sometimes late and sometimes completely forgotten. Randy has been tremendously busy with school and I have failed to back him up adequately as I too just returned from summer vacation... It will get better from now on.

Notes

  • Kottaras hath arrived! He has been sent down to Portland to participate in the AA Eastern League playoffs.
  • Papi's back! He has undergone a gazillion tests but doctors have found nothing wrong with him.
  • The lineup is now back to what it was intended to be. Had Tek been catching instead of Belli, all nine regular starters would be on the field.
  • Still no news on Paps' MRI. It was scheduled for this morning.
  • Craig Hansen has returned from AAA. He brought tonight's starter, Kason Gabbard, with him on the trip over.
