Miggy’s humble start and a nice win
Some quick hitters so you don’t go a whole week without your fix of Osprey news …
– Well, the D-backs picked up a nice win tonight in a game where a pair of former Osprey delivered big hits. Paul Goldschmidt (2009) ignited the D-backs 3-run top of the eighth, while Scott Hairston (2001) also delivered a two-run, game-tying double for the New York Mets. In fact, every former Osprey who had an at-bat in the game had a hit.
– Speaking of one of them, Miguel Montero (2002-03), we came across a great story on him from Fox Sports writer Ken Rosenthal on Montero. It goes into the background on how Miggy started his road from Venezuela to the Major Leagues, by way of Missoula, of course.
Which reminds me – the D-backs are on Fox tomorrow, one of the games to be featured across the country.
– One more little bit of Fox … this fantasy update has CarGo at the top of the list. Carlos Gonzalez (2003) is indeed starting to heat up, which is good for former Osprey followers, the Colorado Rockies and fantasy baseball players.
