Just telling it like it is ...

TIME TO FLIP a food spread. Time to send somebody packing. The Fisher Cats are playing uninspired, sloppy baseball right now. Tonight they opened a four-game series against Binghamton and lost, 9-2, dropping their fourth in a row. New Hampshire (13-19) struck out 15 times and committed three errors. (Mark Sobolewski, throw; John Tolisano, catch; A.J. Jimenez, throw). We expected a drop-off in production from last year's championship team, but nothing quite like this. Grumpy Sal Fasano shut his office door after the game. I talk with the Fisher Cats manager after most every game I cover. It was time to get some reaction on this losing streak, but after Fasano saw me in the hallway, he immediately shut his door. Jonathan Diaz and Brad Glenn did speak about the current state of the Fisher Cats.

"You want to win. When you're in a skid like this, it's tough," Diaz said. "All we can do is keep grinding and focusing and giving it all we've got."

AFTER HOURS: No, that is not the Millennium Falcon parked in left field. It's the new LED board at the Fisher Cats ballpark.
