It is official, Manny Ramirez will be in Albuquerque on Tuesday. I just got home from the game and they announced that Manny Ramirez will play with the Isotopes next week. You better go get your tickets.
Albuquerque Isotopes
The Isotopes played a great game tonight as they beat the Royals and stay in first play of the PCL American South. Miguel Pinango got roughed up in the first, but then settled down. He pitched four innings, giving up six hits and four earned runs. The Isotopes bullpen was excellent as Hyang-Nam Choi, Erick Threets and Scott Strickland combined for five innings allowing no runs.

Shawn Estes Retires
The L A Daily Times is reporting that starting pitcher Shawn Estes retired. I wish Estes the best of luck. He was always a nice guy to me. The last time I saw him at Isotopes park he was sitting in the stands in plain clothes charting pitches. I asked him if he would sign a photo I had taken of him and he did. like I said before he was always a nice guy to me and I have a lot of respect for him. I wish him the best in what ever he decides to do.
James McDonald was called up by the Dodgers. Reports are that he will be a long reliever and Weaver will move to the rotation.
Travis Schlichting was sent down to Triple-A Albuquerque

Valintino Pascucci was released by the Dodgers. he was a fan favorite in Albuquerque. He just wasn't hitting. His was hitting .207 29RBI and 8HR.
