Lyon Richardson impressed David Bell

If you saw the game last night you were probably impressed with Lyon Richardson. He fired a perfect inning of relief and picked up two strikes. But not only the home crowd was impressed – manager David Bell was also impressed. Over at RedsMinorLeagues.com this morning I wrote about Richardson and how different he looked Tuesday night as the last time he was in a game on the hill.

Interesting read about the shift

Russell A. Carleton wrote about the shift This morning in the baseball prospectus. He found and pointed to the finds of some others, some very interesting things. The shift leads to more walks and, depending on the handedness of the club, more or less contact is made. It was fun to read, but you must also have a subscription to the baseball prospectus to read it.

Aaron Boone has a successful heart operation

It was announced today that Aaron Boone, former infielder for the Reds and now manager of the New York Yankees, would undergo surgery to obtain a pacemaker. At 6 p.m. ET it was announced that things were going as expected and that he was not operated on and was in a recovery room.
