6:30 PM — Here’s a Franklin quote on his club’s 7-16 record against New Hampshire.

“It’s a whole new ballgame now,” he said.

“It’s a short series, but we’re well aware of how they played us.  I look at it like this…we’re well aware of how they played us.  We had opportunities where we were in games.  We’ve made some errors and made some bad pitched and it cost us some games.  We played well up until those points.  If we had done a little bit better job, we would have won some of those games.  It’s not like we got blown out.  For the most part, I thought we were pretty competitive…I feel like we have a chance to win.  I always feel like we have a chance to win.  Those games that we lost to them in the regular season, no big deal.  It’s now or never for us.” 

6:15 PM — Just to clarify…Warren said he had no problem with Pettitte starting and Grote and Segedin were both happy to be here…not surprising stuff, kids.

5:50 PM — Not a whole lot that was newsworthy down there…

The current estimate on Andy Pettitte’s outing tomorrow is 4 innings/60 pitches.  Spoke with Tony Franklin, Adam Warren, Taylor Grote and Rob Segedin.  I’ll have all that stuff after the game, there wasn’t anything particularly noteworthy that came out of it…promise.

4:45 PM — Kei Igawa…IN…DA…HOUSE

4:35 PM — Your first photos of Rob Segedin (top) and Taylor Grote…Grote is wearing #23…

4:25 PM — Just saw Kei Igawa down on the field…have heard that he’s only here to work for a couple days and will still start for Scranton.  Igawa is wearing #47…

3:50 PM — Rob Segedin will wear #17…no number on Taylor Grote yet.

2:50 PM — There has been an adjustment made to the postseason probable starting pitchers…but on the New Hampshire side.

Scott Richmond (left) — he of the 8-11 Major League record last year — has been added to the Fisher Cats and will pitch Game 3.  That moves Randy Boone to Game 4 and B.J. LaMura to Game 5.

    Toronto just keeps stacking the deck for New Hampshire…when will Bautista, Wells and Snyder be arriving?

    • jdb316 Says:

      Cleveland is almost as bad with Akron. The Aeros are always stacked. And remember when Cleveland sent Travis Hafner down for a rehab assignment in the playoffs two years ago and he almost singlehandedly beat Bowie?

    Thank you sir!
