Avi G is going to be activated for the next game, if it ever stops raining.   Guessing this means bye bye Trace.

Leury G also close to coming back as well.

It better be good bye Trace. Jeesh. Yeah, been raining for weeks it seems. All day today. Back woods is very thick this year, kinda scary. Lots of rain and lots of heat.

This is why I think Cease is better than Kopech or Hansen or any of our other pitching prospect, in fact Dunning might be my 2nd favorite after Cease

"Heading into the season, his first full year with us, the focus was: every fifth day, a full season's worth of innings," said Getz of Cease. "He's more or less forced our hand. He's really come on; he's pitching with four pitches, four-plus pitches. He's commanding the ball, very mature kid. And he's certainly ready for the next challenge at Double-A."

I will save SoxRule the trouble, "thanks Theo"

On June 21 in Baseball History...

    1939 - The New York Yankees announce Lou Gehrig's retirement, based on the report that he has amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. The 36-year-old star will remain with the team as captain.

    1941 - Lefty Grove's Fenway consecutive win streak, which started on May 3, 1938, ends at 20 games with a 13-9 loss to the St. Louis Browns. The future Hall of Fame southpaw, facing just 13 batters, allows six runs yielding 5 hits and walking 3 in 1.2 innings of work.

    1941 - In New York's 7-2 loss to the Tigers at Yankee Stadium, Phil Rizzuto's seventh-inning round-tripper extends the team's consecutive-game home run streak to 17. The historic homer, which ties the major league record established by Detroit, is only the light-hitting shortstop's second career home run.

    1950 - Joe DiMaggio gets his 2,000th hit, a seventh-inning single off the Indians Chick Pieretti, as the Yanks win 8-2. DiMaggio joins Luke Appling and Wally Moses as the only active players with 2,000 or more hits.

    1952 - The Harrisburg Senators sign softball shortstop standout Eleanor Engle, but the 24-year-old stenographer will never take the field when National Association of Professional Baseball Leagues George Trautman bans the signing of women. Commissioner Ford Frick will go one step further by formally prohibiting females from professional baseball using the ruling to prevent teams from using women players as a publicity stunt.

    1956 - Jack Harshman tosses a one-hitter in the White Sox' 1-0 victory over the Orioles. The opposing Baltimore hurlers, Connie Johnson and George Zuverink, also combined to yield only one hit to the Chicago batters in the Comiskey Park contest.

    1957 - In his first major league start, Von McDaniel‚ who graduated from high school last month, two-hits the Dodgers at Sportman's Park ‚ 2-0. Brooklyn did not get a hit off the 18-year bonus baby old until the sixth inning.

    1957 - Going the distance in the Senators' 6-3 victory over Cleveland, Chuck Stobbs wins his first game since throwing a shutout against Baltimore last September. The 27-year old right-hander snaps a personal 16-game losing streak, that includes dropping his first 11 decisions this year.

    1960 - Richie Ashburn plays his first game in Philadelphia since being traded to the Cubs in the offseason. 'Whitey', a fan favorite during his dozen years with the Phillies, strikes out looking to start his 1-for-6 day in an extra inning loss to his former team at Shibe Park.

    1964 - On Father's Day, Phillies' hurler Jim Bunning becomes the first modern pitcher to toss a no-hitter in both leagues when he throws a perfect game to beat the Mets, 6-0. Gus Triandos also becomes the first catcher to handle a no-hitter in both leagues.

    1964 - Despite the four errors made by the Phillies, Rick Wise wins the first of his 188 major league victories when Philadelphia beats the Mets at Shea Stadium in the nightcap of a twin bill, 8-2. The 18-year old rookie right-hander's accomplishment will be overlooked when his effort follows Jim Bunning's perfect game in the opener.

    1967 - In retaliation for Joe Foy being struck in the helmet in the top of the frame, Red Sox starter Jim Lonborg promptly plunks opposing pitcher Thad Tillotson in the back igniting a bench-clearing brawl in the second inning of the Yankees' 8-1 loss to Boston at the Stadium. The five-minute melee results in no ejections, but doesn't quite settle the matter when Reggie Smith is brushed back in the third and Dick Howser leaves the game in the fifth after being hit the head with a pitch.

    1970 - Detroit's Cesar Gutierrez goes seven-for-seven to tie a record set in 1892 in a 12-inning, 9-8 win over Cleveland. Mickey Stanley's home run wins it for the Tigers. Gutierrez will collect just seven hits in all of 1971, and 128 hits for his career.

    1971 - Indians slugger Ken Harrelson announces his retirement from baseball to join the pro golf tour.

    1978 - On the first pitch in his first at bat, Dave Machemer hits his only major league home run. The rookie second baseman, batting leadoff for the visiting Angels, starts the Halos' eventual 5-2 victory over Minnesota with a long fly over the left field wall at Metropolitan Stadium.

    1986 - Bo Jackson, college football's Heisman Trophy winner in 1985 and the first pick (by Tampa Bay) in the NFL draft, stuns observers nationwide by signing with the Kansas City Royals instead.

    1988 - At Tiger Stadium, Detroit scores six times in the bottom of the ninth inning to beat a stunned Yankees team, 7-6. Allen Trammell ends the game in dramatic fashion hitting a two-out walk-off grand slam off Cecilio Guante.

    1989 - The Yankees trade outfielder Rickey Henderson back to the A's for journeymen pitchers Eric Plunk and Greg Cadaret and outfielder Luis Polonia.

    1998 - Bill Russell is released as Dodger manager and is replaced in the dugout by Glenn Hoffmann. In the front office, Tommy Lasorda assumes the general manager duties of the third-place club from Fred Claire.

    1998 - Michael Bouton's passionate and elegant open letter to the Yankees is published in New York Times on Father's Day, asking the franchise to reconsider their long-time snub of his dad, Jim, the team's former 20-game winner and controversial author of Ball Four, a book that angered the baseball establishment for revealing the game's less glamorous side. Thanks to his son's efforts, Jim Bouton's banishment from Yankee Stadium will end next month when the right-hander is invited to return to the Bronx ballpark for the first time in nearly thirty years to participate in the team's Old-Timers' Day.

    1999 - Blue Jay Tony Fernandez becomes the Dominican-born career hits leader with his 2,178th hit to move ahead of Julio Franco. The shortstop's hit plated the winning run with two outs in the ninth in Toronto's 2-1 victory over Kansas City.

    2001 - The Newark Bears (Atlantic) sold Jose Canseco to the Chicago White Sox.

    2002 - During the New York-Penn League game between the New Jersey Cardinals and the Staten Island Yankees, a fan hops a fence and goes onto the field to argue an umpire's call at first base. The 38-year old woman, who will face disorderly person charges, is at the game with her 8-year old daughter's Brownie troop.

    2002 - Luis Castillo hits safely in his 35th consecutive game tying Fred Clarke (1895), Ty Cobb (1917), and George Sisler (1924-25) for the tenth longest streak in major league history. The Marlins' infielder's third inning infield hit off knuckleballer Steve Sparks' glove also surpasses 1987 Benito Santiago's for the longest streak established by a Latin player.

    2003 - Tied 2-2 after nine innings at Philadelphia's Veterans Stadium, the Red Sox and Phillies exchange runs in the twelfth, and after Boston tallies twice in the thirteenth, the hometown team scores three times in the bottom of the frame to win the inter-league contest, 6-5. BoSox shortstop Nomar Garciaparra goes 6-for-6 for the day, all singles.

    2005 - General manager Dan O'Brien meets face to face with Reds skipper Dave Miley (125-164) to inform the third-year manager of his decision to fire him. Former Ranger manager Jerry Narron becomes the 58th manager in Reds history.

    2005 - After building a 10-2 lead at Yankee Stadium, the Rays lose to the Bronx Bombers 20-11 making it the second time in franchise history the team is ahead by eight or more runs and loses by nine or more tallies. No other club in baseball history has ever achieved this dubious distinction as the D-Rays with their 1999 defeat to the Indians now have accomplished the feat twice.

    2005 - Giving up 13 runs in the bottom of the second inning, the Devil Rays become the first team in history to yield that many tallies in one inning twice during the same season. The benefactors each time are the Yankees as the visiting Tampa Bay hurlers also had a 13-run melt down in April.

    2006 - Jose Reyes becomes the ninth player in Mets history to hit for the cycle. The 23 year old shortstop from the Dominican Republic hits a leadoff homer in the bottom of the first inning followed by a double in the third, then a triple in the fifth, and completes the feat with an eighth inning single in the 5-4 loss to the Reds at Shea Stadium.
    2008 - The New York Mets released Jose Valentin.

    2009 - Tony La Russa gets his 2,500th victory as a manager when the Cardinals defeat Kansas City at Kauffman Stadium, 12-5. Joining Connie Mack and John McGraw, the Redbird skipper, who also piloted the White Sox and A's, becomes only the third major league manager to reach the milestone.

    2013 - The Chicago Cubs sold Brent Lillibridge to New York Yankees.

    2015 - Melissa Mayeux becomes the first female to be placed on the Major League Baseball's international registration list, making her eligible to be signed by pro teams on July 2. The 16 year-old shortstop of the French U-18 junior national team campaigned successfully to abolish the country's "no-girls-allowed" rule, so she could keep competing with the boys.

    2016 - Dean Kremer becomes the first-ever Israeli to sign a contract with a Major League baseball team when he comes to terms with the Dodgers, after being selected in the annual amateur draft earlier this month. The 20-year-old right-hander, who won Europe's Most Valuable Pitcher award in both 2014 and 2015, has hurled for Israel's national baseball team for the past three seasons.

    2016 - Erik Kratz, who tossed an ineffective inning for the Astros in an 11-1 rout to the Angels in April, becomes the first player in the modern era to catch and pitch for two teams in the same season when he throws a scoreless ninth inning in relief in the Pirates' 15-4 loss to the Giants at PNC Park. The 36 year-old journeyman backstop, who was obtained from the Angels earlier in the month, allows two hits, striking Brandon Belt for the first out of the frame.
