Jhonny Peralta agrees to minor league contract with Red Sox
Will play 3B at Triple-A Pawtucket, where he will be teammates with Allen Craig. Craig has just 1 HR in 170 plate appearances this season, by the way.June 30, 2017 at 10:28 am #26171June 30, 2017 at 4:52 pm #26229July 1, 2017 at 8:42 am #26253
Man, quite a free fall for Allen Craig. I don’t recall anyone in the long history of the game that seemed to suddenly lose the ability to hit, other than two similar players where it happened roughly at the same time, Craig and Garrett Atkins.
Guys age, and thus are less productive. But it seems like both Craig and Atkins were real good for a awhile, then had a season where they just lost it and never recovered.July 1, 2017 at 8:57 am #26254
Talk about Craig was that it was driven by a foot injury, but the severity of the decline is so severe, I still wonder what was really behind it.July 1, 2017 at 9:18 am #26258UConn CardModeratorPaid - Annual
Man, Craig’s output just went into freefall. At least he should be very comfortable financially.July 1, 2017 at 8:19 pm #26316
Neither ligament repair pitcher – Seth Maness and Mitch Harris – was able to bounce back, as Maness has been designated for assignment by the Royals.July 8, 2017 at 10:29 am #26997
Kyle Grana was released by the Dodgers.July 13, 2017 at 2:45 pm #27475
Boston seems to agree. Jhonny Peralta went 8-for-40 at Triple-A Pawtucket and that got him released.July 13, 2017 at 2:54 pm #27477
Worth remembering that his brother Casey quit in the middle of the season one year at Palm Beach, right after being named an all-star.

Wishing Colby all the best. He always seemed to have off-the-field issues; I felt it was a lack of maturity, but perhaps something else was going on.
Not sure his dad was always a positive influence. It seemed like his dad tended to blame others for Colby’s misgivings. I do not know this for sure of course, but I sensed that when an authority figure chastised Colby, his dad would get on the authority figure and say “what are you doing to my son”.
When I was a young guy and an authority figure chastised me, my dad would ask me “what kind of screwing around are you doing to get the coach (or teacher or another adult) upset like that”. 🙂July 13, 2017 at 7:31 pm #27490TheEckFactorParticipantFree
Sad to see this young man step away. He and his father sent me a huge box of stuff that we used at an auction for a youth hockey trip. They are a great family!July 14, 2017 at 9:47 am #27516
Very cool!July 19, 2017 at 8:51 am #27960July 19, 2017 at 8:56 pm #28037July 20, 2017 at 5:46 pm #28117

You got me there! I was initially going to start a new thread, but instead decided to put it here.July 30, 2017 at 9:20 am #29075
