What is that crappy stadium?–Bob W. Indianapolis
Is that a Triple-A stadium?–Ryan B. Indianapolis
I’m still getting the hang of posting pictures and I probably could have done a better job explaining each pic in yesterdays post. The first picture is from Norfolk, the second is of Coca-Cola Park and the third picture is of old Durham Bulls park. That is the stadium used for filming Bull Durham. In the movie it is a Triple-A team, but in real life that was the Class A home of the Atlanta Braves. Here is another photo of the park.
Here is a picture of the Bulls new park that so many people, including myself rate as one of the best in the IL.
Here is a quick update on the Indians roster. Yesterday reliever Romulo Sanchez was removed from the Pirates 40 man roster. Sanchez must be traded, waived, or released in the next 10 days. He will likely be waived giving each team a chance to claim Sanchez. If he is claimed someone will have to add him to their 40 man roster. If nobody puts in a claim Sanchez will either be with the Indians or released. The Bucs today announced that Sean Burnett, Craig Hansen, and Donnie Veal will all be on the opening day roster. That means either Evan Meek or Jesse Chavez will fight for the final opening day roster spot. Meek appeared to be in good shape to make the team two weeks ago, but has suffered from a tired arm and more recently missed some days due to Bronchitis. There is still a chance Meek opens the year on the ML DL list and Chavez make the team. We will know more in the next day or two. I’ll keep you posted.
