Hitting the Links

This Sunday the Portland Sea Dogs have their annual Field of Dreams/Fan Appreciation Day against the New Hampshire Fisher Cats. The Dogs will don the 1926 unis of the Portland Eskimos, emerge from the outfield through a corn field and enter the stands to personally thanks all of the fans. Recently Portland Assistant General Manager Chris Cameron and Sales & Marketing Administrator Brian Murphy went on Fox 23'd Good Day Maine to discuss this great event.

Brian MacPherson of the Providence Journal catches us up on the progress of Lowell starting pitcher Madison Younginer. This is a nice piece about the 19 year-old and how he went about making some in-game adjustments in a recently outing against Tri-City.

Kevin Gray puts a spotlight on Fisher Cats manager Luis Rivera in his weekly "On Baseball" segment in the Manchester Union Leader. The former Boston Red Sox infielder has done a remarkable job in his first year in New Hampshire. He is receiving great praise for the work he has done so far this season and much like the talented prospects he currently skippers, he could be making the jump to "The Show" in the very near future.

When does a 39th pick in the draft pick get a $2.55 million dollar signing bonus? When that draft pick is Anthony Ranaudo and the team is the Boston Red Sox. The 6'7" righty out of LSU recently joined the Lowell Spinners after signing back on August 16th and even more recently sat down with Baseball Prospectus for a little Q&A. Baseball Prospectus
