As we transition from the the day-to-day rhythm and routine of the regular season towards the less-structured offseason, I figure I’d pass along some links of some tangentially related stories and tidbits that I’ve spotted while I was waiting for news about Vermont and Hagerstown in the past day or so.
- The Smiley Gonzalez story resurfaced. First, with this story in Sports Illustrated, which Hardball Talk’s Craig Calcaterra riffed on thusly, and then with Adam Kilgore’s follow-up that revealed that perhaps we may see Mr. Alvarez next year.
- Mark Zuckerman passed along some reader pics from the Instructional League.
- In the wake of yesterday’s news, which yours truly felt coming but didn’t want to publish in the late afternoon and get missed, we see that Vermont will end up with Oakland as its parent club
Thanks for stopping by…
