Game 39: Pre-Game Notes

5:20 PM — That Patriots lineup is one of the wildest ones I’ve ever seen…

5:10 PM — Lineups are in — the Bears have a different pitcher listed, imagine that.

NEWARK

James Cooper, LF
Kennard Jones, RF
Edgardo Alfonzo, 3B
Scott Spiezio, DH
Daryle Ward, 1B
Isaiah Kaaihue, C
Stephen Shults, SS
Shawn Williams, 2B
Nook Logan, CF

Paul Fagan , P

SOMERSET

Wayne Lydon, CF
Tim Raines, Jr. 2B
Noah Hall, DH
Matt Hagen, 3B
Jason Belcher, C
Michael Hernandez, LF
J.R. Hopf, 1B
Elliott Ayala, SS
Zach Smithlin, RF

Josh Miller, P

4:05 PM — Josh Miller (4-2, 3.67) versus Matt Smith (3-3, 3.27) is your pitching matchup tonight.  No BP for Somerset tonight.  Stellar.

2:45 PM — I’m here in Somerset for the first of a four-game set against the Newark Bears, who make their first visit to TD Bank Ballpark of 2010.  I’ll be here today and Monday, and in Trenton on Saturday and Sunday.

There’s really no news…but I’m somewhat obligated to pass on this wacky story involving former Patriots pitcher Pat Daneker.  I know both Pat and his wife, Bree, and this is certainly a difficult time for them.

I’ve interviewed Pat a handful of times both through the Atlantic League and his time in the Yankees organization, and he’s always been good to me.  Hopefully, there’s more to the story than meets the eye.
