CUP O' JO - Nov 19, 2008

Las Perlas now has two players from the 707 area code to blog about in the Caribbean League.  Jason Lane has joined Tiburones de La Guaira in the Venezuelan League.  His team is riding a 6 game win streak at the halfway point of their season, 4.5 games behind first place Caracas.  Around Thanksgiving, a new wave of pros generally arrives to replace underperforming "foreigners" as the teams make their playoff run.  Good to see Jason get a shot in Venezuela.  He earned some quality mojo with his Camp For A Cure efforts and donations and we wish him well down there.

JASON LANE - Tiburones de La Guaira, Venezuela (OF, 2008 Red Sox Organization - Pawtuckett, AAA):  Jason has 4 games on the books for the Sharks and is batting .200 after going 0-for-5 in last night's 21-7 romp over Arugua.  Jason had a walk, a run scored and 3 Ks playing left and right field.  Some game highlights, in native Google-ator of course:
Sharks got him the most of each of its unstoppable, and made everyone pay dear for errors and tickets issued by the defense and the pitchers of the Aragua Tigers, to beat them slate heavy with 21 races to 7 at the stadium Jose Perez Colmenares of Maracay.
Sharks began their attack from the very first inning, when the opener Aragua Rich Hill, EMBASE to Gregor Blanco and Luis Hernandez with a ticket and beaten respectively.  Oscar Salazar followed with the first of his three unstoppable in the evening...  Built 5 more sharks racing in the second inning, 5 in the fifth, and 8 in the seventh to put final figures to a party that puts the series including 2-1 in favor of La Guaira... The Picher winner was Enrique Gonzalez, who would launch as planned after Ortega, and 4 inputs and two thirds allowed 3 runs, a single clean.  Enrique is the same problem to get in a shooting error in the second inning when the Tigers made the 3 races... Highlighted with the bat by Sharks Gregor Blanco, with its hit 200 and 201 of his career, the latter a two-run driver and Cesar Suarez 3-2 before going out of beaten on his right elbow.
Wow. One for the ages.

TOMMY EVERIDGE - Los Gigantes de Carolina, Puerto Rico (1B, Oakland A's Organization - Midland Rockhounds, AA)  1-for-3 with a double, a run scored, and a walk in last night's 7-4 loss to league leading Aricebo.  Tommy picked up his second error of the season and was gunned down at the plate on a fielder's choice with one out and the team leading 4-2.  .294 avg, 22nd in the league as of 11/18.  A 5 run 7th inning capped off by a 3 run single was the undoing of Los Gigantes last night:
Then Martinez was replaced by Julio Rodriguez, who gave away free ticket to Jorge Padilla to fill the pads. A incogible the right of Edwards Guzman towed emptied the cushions to give them the advantage to end the visitors 7-4.
The Giants are now in a three way tie for fourth... or last... depending on whether you're a glass-half-empty or glass-half-full sorta person ;-) 


  1. What a pain trying to read this google-hater-nator-gator stuff.

  2. Maybe Joe Morgan is fluent in Spanish and would like to be a guest translator. Pick your poison... ;-)

  3. Joe Morgan isn't even fluent in English. I'll stick with google ateher


Give PTownFan a shout. It will make her day to know there is someone out there ;-) Don't worry. She doesn't always talk about herself in the third person like The Rickey.
