First of all, even though almost anyone reading this blog probably already knows this, Brad Boxberger went down to St. Petersburg yesterday and will likely be with the Rays for a while. He has done a stellar job for the Bulls in his 6 appearances.
In his place, RHP Jake Thompson has been called up from the Montgomery Biscuits. He has solid stats. Should be an asset to the Bulls.
I’ve had it pointed out to me that in addition to having former Durham Bull Joe Dillon as hitting coach, the Syracuse Chiefs have as their manager Billy Gardner who managed the Montgomery Biscuits for the last several years. He knows very well any of the Bulls who came through his place. That might explain the testing of Curt Casali over the last two games.
Sure wish the fans up Syracuse way were paying attention. They look to be a pretty decent team.
