So, the big news of the day is that Anthony Rizzo is on the move to Portland! Yay Tony!
The other news is that Mike Cameron is rehabbing in Pawtucket, and that the minor league teams got swept, ending a 4-game winning streak and giving the Salem Sox their first 3-game streak of the season. Oh no!

-The B-Mets are the only team to really give Kelly problems so far. Big-offense team, lots of AAAA-type depth. The strikeouts are pretty impressive all things considered. Hit 93 with the FB again.
