A great pitching matchup is scheduled tonight for baseball fans old school and new alike……
2003 All Star and the newest addition to our Salt Lake Bees pitching staff, Randy Wolf, will be taking on the Seattle Mariners’ top pitching prospect and MLB’s # 8 out of 100 top prospect of the game, Taijuan Walker tonight at Smith’s Ballpark.
If it stays dry. Even if its a little moist…… GET OUT THERE!!!!
15 + year veteran of the game, Randy Wolf, pitched for the Reno Aces when he came through and shut our batters down earlier this season. Now he will be wearing “BEES” across his chest as he is on his … Continue reading →
With Josh Hamilton day to day with a knee boo boo, relief pitcher Fernando Salas has been demoted to the Salt Lame Bees and the much deserving JB Shuck has been promoted to the Halos.
Side note here…….. Last time Sting’EmBees represented Bees Nation by catching an Angels series in Seattle, Josh Hamilton got hurt in the first game and JB Shuck was on the first plane outta SLC to fill in.
Well last night Sting’EmBees was at the Big A and Josh Hamilton was taken out because of the aforementioned boo boo and guess what…..JB Shuck is well on his way to the Big A!
Someone should be slipping me a $50 spot…
What are the chances that 2 professional players sign to the same Triple A team that resides in the same city where the same High School they played at the same time in?? All of that AND they are part of said Triple … Continue reading →
Former Bees hurler Jeremy Berg, has signed a Minor League deal with the St Louis Cardinals. As a Berg fan, I hope he gets a serious look with the club. He will be assigned to Triple A Memphis. He needed … Continue reading →
Earlier tonight ( Sunday 7/20 ) Sting’EmBees was able to check out our ex slugger Taylor Lindsey as he now plays for Triple A El Paso ( San Diego affiliate ). They are here in Fresno, CA taking on the … Continue reading →
Well he was up in the Show a lot longer than I expected for his first call up, but a day after going 0 for 6 in the 16 inning Angels win, CJ Cron has been optioned down to Triple A us to work on getting that groovy swing back.
Cron was a big reason the Angels were able to cut ties with Raul Ibanez so easily, so I imagine he will be back pretty soon once he starts seeing the ball better.
Angels involved in a Houston sized trade to fortify the back end of their bullpen…… Ok… before i go any further, that was a dumb joke. The Halos and Padres agree to a deal for San Diego closer Huston Street … Continue reading →
Word on the street is that Grant Green, a day after he produced his first career pinch hit RBI that incidentally won the game for our Bees, has been called back up to the Show.
The move is related to last nights injury to Angels OF Colin Cowgill after he squared to bunt and the ball skimmed the bat and struck him in the nose.. Cowgill quickly was taken out and replaced by Efren Navarro. A 15 day DL stint is probable.. ….Ouch.
Brennan Boesch has been pulled from the Triple A All Star game. Going in his place is a young and very deserving Shawn O’Malley. Not quite sure why Boesch has been scratched, one can only assume since he is not … Continue reading →
