AFL Brief II

Swell news: JP Arencibia took a walk(!) and singled in three trips as the Desert Dogs fell 6-4 to the Peoria Javelinas yesterday. Scott Campbell came in off the bench to pinch hit, drawing a walk and scoring a run... then played short? For a guy who allegedly needs to work on his D he's spending enough time away from his natural home at second.

Pitching-wise, it got a bit ugly for Zach Dials (this year's Fisher Cats closer, pictured at left) in the bottom of the 6th, when he surrendered a triple and three consecutive singles before striking out the next two hitters to leave with a line of 2 R (1 ER) in 2/3 of an inning.

Elsewhere, I encourage you all to pay a visit to The Blue Jay Hunter, where fellow Sardinian Ian Hunter does his year-end Jays recap. I don't want to steal his thunder and will leave it by saying that it's well worth your while to check out his Tim Dierkes interview, where various offseason moves are hashed out with the MLBTR guru, and his chat with the always entertaining Mike Wilner.

Good hunting, lads.
