July 9


What happened?

Did the roster shakeup help?

Is Ambres, Myrow, Hundley, and Rodriguez better than the incumbants?

I hope we see the same lineup again today, at least.  And the looks Maddux, Peavy, and CY were giving on the bench suggest they want to have the same lineup when they are on the hill.


A player who has worn the Sand and Navy all season long is the hottest hitter of all.  Scott Hairston hit a tape-measure HR last night, his 4th HR in his last 4 games, and added 2 other hits.  Chase Headley also had 3 hits and 4 RBI.

But the real story for me was the new kids on the block.  Brian Myrow, a career minor leaguer, got the call up and hit his 1st MLB HR.  Myrow was the PCL batting champ last season with the Portland Beavers and was hitting .321 this season with an eye popping .455 OBP.  Why haven’t we seen him before now?  Well, he plays 1st base (All-Star A-Gon…); but when it became apparant that Paul McAnulty wasn’t getting it done, which should have been several weeks ago, I would have liked to see him as a PH.

SS Luis Rodriguez, C Nick Hundley, and RF Chip Ambres each contributed with a hit as well.

  1. SLC Angels

    I don’t know what part of Utah you guys are from, but being a Padres fan in SLC, I make sure to make it out to every Salt Lake Bees vs Portland Beavers game that comes through town, and even though I’m always cheering for the Bees (they’re my guys, after all), I have a special place in my heart for the Beavers too. So when I read about FIVE Beavers coming together to destroy the Marlins, you better believe I was ecstatic!

    We live in the Ogden area. We went to the Memorial Day game between the Bees and the Beavers. The Bees have had an incredible season with the Angels unbeliebably stacked minor league system.

    It’s too bad they don’t visit during the summer again this year. I am a teacher and it is always easier to attend games in SLC during the summer.

    For those that don’t know, the Bees are owned by the Utah Jazz owner, Larry Miller. And they play in a great ballpark in downtown Salt Lake.
