  • Fuentes: All-Star MVP

    Wednesday’s Triple-A All-Star Game showcased to all of Minor League Baseball what the Albuquerque Isotopes have known all season — this Josh Fuentes guy is pretty good.

    Fuentes was named MVP of the game after helping the Pacific Coast League All-Stars to a 12-7 victory over the International League. The game lured 10,516 fans to Huntington Park in Columbus, Ohio.

    Fuentes started at third base for the PCL. He hit a solo home run and drove in another run, going 2 for 3.

  • Armijo is Kansas-bound

    Richard Armijo’s got a little bit of old school in him.

    From his disciplined approach at the plate to his polite deference to his elders, the recent Robertson graduate strikes a contrast to many (though not all) of his peer group.

    Even his walk-out song, “God’s Gonna Cut You Down,” by Johnny Cash, plays out in stark relief from the hip-hop and other new-school jams favored by teammates. It makes quite the impression nonetheless.
