CUP O' JO - December 18, 2008

TOMMY EVERIDGE - Los Gigantes de Carolina, Puerto Rico (1B, Oakland A's Organization - Midland Rockhounds, AA)  This will be the last Cup O' Jo until Spring Training or the World Baseball Classic.  Tommy is home for good as Carolina winds down its season.  For those following the team, Wednesday's game was suspended due to rain and today is a scheduled day off.  Ponce has a firm hold on first place with 4 other teams pretty knotted up in the middle so some of the Gigantes rainouts/suspensions may need be played.  It's really tough finding info on the Puerto Rican  league but hopefully low attendance and other problems that resulted in a year off from Caribbean Leagues participation are a thing of the past.  The league recently added webcast of a selected Saturday afternoon game and this week it's Carolina vs Ponce.  Tune in at 3:30 PST and watch the Gigantes take on the Leones.  Here's a link to the website. You need to register, but it seems to be free.  

Rays Chatter:  Rays outfielder Fernando Perez is making a strong case for the 25 man roster come spring.  He homered, drove in three runs and fell a triple shy of the cycle in yesterday's game.  His Venezuelan team remains in first-place.

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.
