Minor League Scorebook

Not much news today, but there are the rumors from Register columnist Randy Youngman:
Most prominent and provocative, of course, is a rumored three-team deal that would bring Boston slugger Manny Ramirez to Anaheim.

In one whispered scenario, which makes absolutely no sense, the Angels would send Darin Erstad to the Red Sox and ship Casey Kotchman and Minor League Player of the Year Brandon Wood to Arizona. The Diamondbacks, looking to dump salaries, would send Troy Glaus to Boston and receive Red Sox prospects in return.

Yeah, we've heard this before, but Youngman finds it as credible as I do. And while we're giggling about implausibles, consider: Okay, so none of it's credible. Whatever.

2005-11-07: Surprise 12, Peo Saguaros 10 #
Anderson: 2-5, 1 RBI, 1 K
Kendrick: 1-3, 1 HR, 2 RBI, 2 BB

Smith: 1-5, 1 HR, 1 RBI, 2 K
Hubele: 2-4, 1 2B, 1 BB
Bourn: 2-5, 1 3B, 1 RBI, 1 K

You get giddy reading these things, I swear... Brandon Wood's double got him the league lead in RBIs with 31. Howie Kendrick's two-run homer was his fourth.
2005-11-07: Phoenix 1, Mesa 17 #
Kemp: 1-2
LaRoche: 1-4, 1 2B
Loney: 1-4
Suzuki: 0-2, 2 BB, 1 K
Abreu: 0-3, 1 K
Murphy: (L, 3-2), 3.0 IP, 8 ER, 12 H, 3 K, 0 BB, 1 HR, 6.26 ERA
Kohn: 2.0 IP, 5 ER, 8 H, 2 K, 0 BB, 2 HR, 7.71 ERA
Ouch. Diamondbacks prospect Bill Murphy gave up eight earned runs over three innings. Tigers prospect Humberto Sanchez kept the Desert Dogs quiet over seven, while the Solar Sox pounded out a season-high 28 hits. Andy LaRoche provided the only Dogs offense of the game on his RBI double. Tomorrow, another Surprise vs. Phoenix game.

Wow, that BOS-LAA-ARI trade makes absolutely NO sense for the Angels and not a whole lot of sense for Boston (unless Glaus plays 1B and said prospects aren't anything too big.)
My money's on Piazza signing with the Angels.
