Local television news sports reports

Also mentioned is the possibility of playing in Asia, his great season
with the Altoona Curve in 2006, the World Baseball Classic last year,
and the upcoming Claxton Shield being held in Perth



An Interesting Note

As the main story starts, there is a shot of Brett in the background
What is wrong with it ??
Clue = Brett is a lefty !!
and I have no idea how this could have happened !!

Pirates Message Board

The Post-Gazette reports that the Bucs have signed three minor leaguers
One is catcher Omar Falcon who played last season in the Seattle organization - didn't he just get taken in the minor league portion of the Rule 5 draft?
Another is Paul Castellano, a 29 year old catcher
He'll probably be at Altoona, perhaps catching occasionally but probably also playing some outfield
The Bucs also re-signed Brett Roneberg, who played outfield for Altoona last season

A resigning - spent '03 and '06 with Altoona - Aussie player (remember Snowy's posts about him earlier in the year?) - Silver Medalist from the '04 games - good all around guy - glad to see him back - he might end up at either 'AA' or 'AAA' - I'm hoping for 'AAA' - he looks to be fully recovered from his shoulder problem
There is heaps more info on him
