        Well, no Zephyrs games for me this year.

          It appears Dusty Coleman has signed a minor league deal with the Royals.

            Mike Pelfrey pitched 7 innings of scoreless, 5-hit ball against the Royals tonight as the Twinkies shut-out KC 3-0.

            I guess if the Royals are going to lose may as well be to a Shocker great.

              He pitched very well, and looked a lot like he did before all the injury trouble.
              Its a good landing if you can walk away, its a great landing if the plane can be reused the next day.

                Royals call up former Shocker Dusty Coleman.

                Good luck Dusty.

                  I wasn't watching, but it sounds like he screwed up his pinch-running opportunity by stopping half-way to home on a tag-up play and ended up in a rundown.

                    That's exactly what happened. Unfortunately, it looked like someone that wasn't quite ready for the bright lights.

                      Reply. Yes he did. Pretty painful to watch but at least it did not cost the Royals a win. No doubt the butterflies were really fluttering in that situation in front of a sold out park and Dusty simply had a brain cramp. Mentally, he will have to learn to deal with being a lightly used spot player instead of someone who plays everyday. However, he did handle the aftermatch about as well as he could have and I don't think that play will have any lasting impact. That said it is clear that the Royals aren't looking at Dusty as a key piece of the puzzle even before that play.

                      It was a weird situation to be in during your 1st MLB appearance. 5 infielders and 2 outfielders both playing shallow. It was a strong throw to the plate from right field and from Dusty's angle pretty hard to see if it was on line or not. As it was it was off to the 1st base side of home enough that he would have had a reasonable chance to score had he gone hard all the way. (Had it been on line he was a dead duck for sure). The thing is the 3B coach sent him so he should have just gone balls to the wall. Unfortunately, his brain got in the way a bit too much.

                      Would have been a very nice little feel good story if he would have scored the winning run there. Unfortunately, it did not work out that way. Hopefully, Dusty can come through on his next opportunity.

                        "A few days ago the Yankees surprisingly called up outfielder Taylor Dugas just so he could sit on the bench while Carlos Beltran was dealing with a sore ribcage. Sitting on the bench knowing you’re going to sent back down in a few days stinks — Dugas was sent down yesterday, sure enough — but being added to the 40-man roster and spending even one day in MLB comes with major perks, as MLBPA director of communications Greg Borris explained to Brendan Kuty.

                        First and foremost, the player gets the pro-rated portion of the $507,500 minimum salary, which works out to $2,773.22 per day during the regular season. Dugas was making approximately that per month in the minors. Players are also entitled to a portion of the MLBPA’s licensing program revenue (baseball cards, video games, etc.) and they start accruing service time towards pension benefits. And finally, the big thing is health care for them and their families. They get access to the league’s high-quality yet affordable health care program for life after just one day in the show. Getting called up for a day might sound disappointing, but man, the benefits are as good as it gets."

                            So close to a roster spot last year, Brian Flynn fights for Royals bullpen role.

                              Hope these guys make rosters. Have a feeling we won't be sponsoring any more MLB products for a while.

                                If Flynn can get his velocity back up, he'll be a very difficult guy to send to Omaha. But from what I understand, he has options left. That means if there's someone else vying for that last spot who the coaches also like, yet doesn't have options left (and thereby must be DFA'd or released), Flynn will go down by default.
