— Just got off the phone with new Staten Island Yankees manager Justin Pope.  I also spoke with new Trenton Thunder hitting coach Tom Slater, and have played a little phone tag with Tony Franklin as well.  I should have stories posted on Pope and Slater — at least one of them — this week.

— Kanekoa Texeira has inked a deal with the Cincinnati Reds.  In lieu of repeating everything Josh Norris wrote about it, I’ll simply link you over to his blog post about it.

— Speaking of former Thunder pitchers and the Reds, just to clarify on something I wrote earlier, Andrew Brackman is apparently on a Major League contract with his hometown club, although that has still not been reflected on the Reds 40-man roster listed on their website.
