Well, someone's been reading this blog...

Thunder pitcher George Kontos has finally gotten the much-deserved call to Triple-A. Taking his place on the roster will be catcher Jose Gil, who was transferred to Scranton last week.

Unfortunately for the Thunder, though, it was Kontos' day to start, which means it's another bullpen start. We all know how that went last time out in the finale of a New Britain series ...

This time it will Wikins Arias, one the team's two left-handers, against New Britain's Jay Rainville.

Also unfortunately for the Thunder, the move means the team is STILL playing a man short. Gil replacing Kontos means they'll stay at 23, and with just three outfielders (Curtis, Fortenberry, Cooper) while Edwar Gonzalez is on the DL.

Now, however, they have just four starters, too, in Alan Horne, Ryan Pope, Ivan Nova and Zach McAllister. Hopefully that situation will be rectified once the team returns home to start their series with Binghamton.
