Hey, a .500 month! That leaves us at 58-78 overall- the worst team in the TBL West by six games. Matthew Kerrigan has pretty much mailed it in since May and is now hitting .271 with 12 home runs. Kerry Hammond has been playing great (.350 average) but has only gotten himself into 36 games. Calum Mackay (.364 OBP) has been a nice bright spot at second base.

Freeton offered us first baseman Nick Myers at the deadline- for reliever Matt Rebollar, and former first-round pick Chris Roberts. Myers is a 25-year-old left-handed hitter, fairly well rounded, and can actually play first base. Roberts, 21, was not likely to turn into a star, more of a fourth outfielder. I also called up 24-year-old reliever Josh Ralston, who's struck out an incredible 214 batters in 142 2/3 relief innings this season!! He was immediately installed as the new closer.
