Hosmer promoted to Wilmington


As first reported by Greg Schaum (at least that's where I got it from)--Hosmer and Van Stratten have been moved up. For Van Stratten it was about time. Hosmer had an up and down year at Burlington--I'm not exactly sure why they picked now to move him up but I've given up trying to find rational reasons why this organization does what it does.

Selig telling clubs to curb draft bonuses...or else get a talking to

Bud Selig has repeatedly cautioned clubs about the economy, and at the owners’ meeting last Thursday he told them he was doing something about it and sternly advised them to listen. The commissioner told the owners that his office planned to roll back the recommended signing bonuses for the June 9 amateur draft by 10 percent.

Maybe he should schedule a national security speech directly after the Presidents next time?
