The Astronomicals come to town tonight to begin a short two-game set against our heroes. Aaron Harang returns to the mound, where he’ll face someone named Chris Sampson. I think he played college basketball for Virginia in the early eighties, but I’m not sure.
Rosencrans advises that Edwin Encarnacion isn’t playing again tonight. While I can’t argue with keeping Freel and Hamilton in the lineup, I fully expect Encarnacion to be dealt before the July trading deadline. Just a hunch.
Thoughts? Here’s an open game thread to discuss whatever’s on your mind.
