NOTES FROM DOWN ON THE FARM…
- Karma is a bitch…James Houser who avoided the final 2 weeks of his suspension entering the ’08 season due to a loophole after the Rays added him to the 40-man roster, will miss yet another start due to injury. This time it is a left forearm strain. Houser just recently returned from minor knee surgery. [Biscuits’ Batter]
- He only played in 9 games for the Montgomery Biscuits, but David Price was named to the league’s post-season all-star team. [OurSports Central]
