Bulls Lose, But Other Interesting Goings On

Season: 18-10; Road Trip: 3-3

I wasn’t going to comment today because I was unable to listen to the game and, to be honest, the Bulls lost, so how could that be interesting? But a couple of things happened worth mentioning in and outside the game.

In the game we saw Mike Fontenot back at shortstop after what seems like a long absence. And then Brandon Guyer got hit by a pitch, got around to score the only Bulls run of the game, but then left. Did anyone hear an update?

Outside the game — 
  • Norfolk won at Syracuse, so the Tides are now in first place.
  • Shelley Duncan, a player we’ve seen a lot of over the years, but not in a Bulls uniform, is on his way to Durham. He stayed with the Rays out of spring training after Luke Scott pulled a muscle. Could add some home run power, but will require the Bulls to make a roster move.
  • Former Bull Steven Vogt got some love from his local paper. Nice story.
  • Another former Bull, Reid Brignac, seems to be doing OK in Denver.
  • A bunch of money is going to be pumped into the DBAP over the winter. Sounds like the Bulls are getting a pretty good deal from the City of Durham.
  • Chris Archer has had a couple of thoughtful pieces written about him recently, here and here.
  • Lastly, a poignant blog entry over at Nicole Johnson’s blog.
