Thanks, SueD for keeping the discussions going. Things should start getting back to normal this week. I’ve attempted to update the Big Board with all of the various moves, but I’m sure I’ll find some moves I’ve missed.
Syracuse’s doubleheader with Gwinnett was postponed. Both the suspended game from Saturday and Sunday’s regularly scheduled game will be made up when the Chiefs visit the Braves in June.

As most of the regulars here now, I have spent the past 3 1/2 months student teaching in preparation for a big career change.
Today marked the end of that phase of my education. I wrapped up my teaching internship today.
It’s had an impact on the posting at NFA, I know. I appreciate everyone’s patience as I worked through the long days & nights.
Why do I bring this up?
NFA is going to be quiet for the next week as I take a vacation. I’m headed off to Utah for a week of hiking and relaxing (with a day of gambling in Vegas).
I’ll see everyone on May 10.

Syracuse has added RHPs Jeff Mandel & Drew Storen from Harrisburg. These moves put the Chiefs two over the max roster (26/24) and the Senators two under the max roster (22/24).
LHP Chuck James won his second straight start, as the Chiefs defeated Toledo 5-3 (box). James allowed three runs on four hits over 5IP while striking out four. LHPs Doug Slaten & Atahaulpa Severino and RHP Joel Peralta combined on three one-hit shutout innings of relief, striking out a combined six with Peralta earning his fourth save of the season. 3B Chase Lambin paced the way offensively, going 3/4 with a double, solo homer & two RBI. DH Josh Whitesell had a solo homer; CF Pete Orr was 2/4; and a rehabbing Mike Morse was 2/4 with a run & RBI. Notes: Still no word on what’s up with RHP JD Martin so the Nationals are again going to borrow a pitcher from Harrisburg, this time RHP Jeff Mandel.

Harrisburg RF/LF Leonard Davis & LF/1B Bill Rhinehart each hit a homer off of rehabbing Philles SP Joe Blanton as the Senators defeated Reading 5-2 (box/gamer).

It appears that Mandel’s promotion is for a spot start, so the Senators will not replace Mandel on the roster.
