Talk Zone / 40-Man implications from the Tejada trade
« on: December 12, 2007, 05:37:37 pm »
Aside from the merits of the trade itself (which has been hashed and re-hashed to the tune of 20 pages and counting), the Tejada deal also has the effect of opening three spots on the 40-man roster, i.e., four players gone (Scott, Patton, Albers, and Sarfate) minus one player back (Tejada) equals three open roster spots.

Any ideas as to what the front office does with those spots?  FA pitching?

Talk Zone / Mike Coolbaugh
« on: July 22, 2007, 11:42:06 pm »
Many of you (especially those in Austin and Round Rock) are probably familiar with Mike Coolbaugh, the former Express and Zephyrs 3B who also saw big league time with the Brewers and Cardinals.  More recently, Mike assumed the position of hitting coach with the Rockies' AA affiliate in Tulsa just a few weeks ago.

I've just received the horrific news that Mike was apparently struck in the head by a foul ball while coaching 1st Base for Tulsa tonight in a game in Little Rock.  He reportedly never regained consciousness and passed away shortly thereafter.

Mike was 35-years-old.  He is survived by a wife and two small sons, who reside in his hometown of San Antonio.  Mike was a great ballplayer and a great guy.

I anticipate that the Ryan-Sanders group will do something to honor Mike's memory, and I understand that some of Mike's former teammates currently with the Express and the Hooks will be doing the same.

Our prayers go out for his family in this time of tragedy.
