Webb shut down from live batting practice

Tucson Padres


The Tucson Padres have unveiled their logo (which I like). Their first home game at Tucson Electric Park will be on April 15 vs Salt Lake City. Their first series against Reno doesnt come until June 13-16 at Reno. The first time Reno will visit Tucson is July 4-6 (which I wonder if that is intentional). I am going to try and go to every Reno game, or most anyway. Terry Kennedy will manage the team, with Bob Skube as hitting coach and Steve Webber pitching coach.

Arizona Congresswoman Giffords shot; 4 dead


Also. I know this is a baseball forum, but I thought this was worthy news. Pretty sad. This incident happened two lights down from me and a friend of mine was either there when it happened or shortly after. RIP. I voted for Giffords each of her terms, she was 40.

D-backs look to upgrade shaky relief corps


PHOENIX -- Kevin Towers spent the month of October reshaping the D-backs' front office and coaching staff. Now, the new D-backs GM will turn his attention to remaking a roster that has finished last in the National League West two years running. Given the results the past two years, it seems like a project that could take some time. But Towers likes the talent he sees.

The D-backs have agreed to terms with Don Baylor to become the team's hitting coach, an industry source confirmed Monday. An announcement could come later this week. Baylor, 61, had served as hitting coach for the Rockies in 2009 and 2010 before being dismissed nearly 10 days ago.

Michael Glyn Brown, 53, was charged with assaulting Rachel Brown on Aug. 13 by twisting her arm behind her back, court records show. Take his commercials off the air already!

Great article on life in the minors, yeah it is a NYY affiliate, but interesting nonetheless.


Minor League Baseball: Investing In The Future By thunderbaseball Baseball players know what you think of them. They’re overpaid. They’re spoiled. Everything’s been handed to them. If you’ve lived the life, however, you already know perception does not match reality. At least not in the minor leagues. Not even close.
