By sstorm Published: July 29, 2007

After going 2-for-4 with three RBI and a pair of runs scored in the Aeros 6-3 win over Altoona Sunday afternoon, shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera was promoted to Triple-A Buffalo.

Ironically, Cabrera started at second base Sunday for the first time all season, fueling immediate talk that it was likely his last game for the Aeros.

Bogar Thrilled Lewis is Driving Someone else Crazy

By sstorm Published: July 28, 2007

When former Aeros pitcher Jensen Lewis made his major league debut with the Indians last week there was more than a few of his former teammates and coaches interested in the results.

"I was excited for him," Aeros manager Tim Bogar said. "It's hard not to be when it's Jensen, he just brings so much energy to the game. The way his wind up is and all that, it's fun to watch. Of course, I'm sure over time it might drive (Indians manager Eric Wedge) Wedgie crazy.''

Plans for Laffey Remain a Mystery

By sstorm Published: July 24, 2007

Not long after left-handed picther Aaron laffey was pulled from his start after 48 pitches at Triple-A Buffalo Sunday, a post popped up in this blog from one our faithful readers wondering what was up. Props to Roger for being so on top of things - especially with just a week left before the trading deadline, when these kind of things happen regularly.

Yet, a few days later, we're still trying to figure it out. The Beacon's Indians beat reporter Sheldon Ocker reported in Tuesday's paper that Tribe manager Eric Wedge denied anything is going on with Laffey - which in baseball terms almost always means something is absolutely going on.

Cabrera Gets it

By sstorm Published: July 22, 2007

After all the other players and coaches had quickly headed into the lockerroom late Saturday night, Asdrubal Cabrera sat silently by himself in the dugout, absently staring out onto the field for about five minutes.

Cabrera didn't get a hit in the Aeros 6-1 loss to visiting Reading that included three errors. In taking a few minutes to think about things, he seemed to sense that his team is more than headed in the wrong direction having won just four of their last 15 games.

Suspended Game Brings out the Worst in Some of Us

By sstorm Published: July 21, 2007

This email arrived Friday morning and it made me wonder what you all thought about the subject. My reponse to the gentleman who wrote the angry email can be seen after the text of his rant.

I do not want to come off like I'm always sticking up for the team (trust me, they tend to often feel otherwise). However, while rather misinformed, I believe the man who wrote the email might have views shared by others.

You know a win is huge when it snaps a four-game losing streak.

Nothing Going the Aeros Way

By sstorm Published: July 17, 2007

When Brian Barton slams a two-out, three-run home run in the ninth inning to tie the game like he did Tuesday night against Harrisburg, you gotta figure the Aeros are in line for a win.

When reliever Jim Ed Warden continues the momentum by coming on in the 10th and shuts the Senators down for two frames, you gotta figure the Aeros are in line for a win.

Around the Eastern League

By sstorm Published: July 16, 2007

Some notes from across the league before the Aeros head home to Canal Park Monday night to kick off a seven-game home stand. In their just-completed four-game road trip to rival Altoona, the Aeros went 2-2, winning the first two games before dropping the last two.

AKRON - Recently promoted catcher/infielder Chris Gimenez led the league in several offensive categories last week. In four games, he hit a league-leading .533 (8-for-15) with two home runs and three RBIs. In addition, he was also tops in runs scored (8), on-base percentage (.588), slugging percentage (1.133) and extra-base hits (five).

Canal Park hosts 5 Million Fans in 11 years

By sstorm Published: July 10, 2007

Canal Park saw its five millionth fan come through the turnstiles Monday night, and I don't know if a better guy could have won the door prize.

Terry Reagan, who works in real estate for Howard Hanna, had bought 10 tickets weeks ago in anticipation of the arrival of his sister-in-law from Texas, planning to take her and a handful of family out for a night of fun.
