Quick Hitter

Just a quick hitter today as the 10 day, nine game homestand continues tonight against the Spokane Indians, as the Hawks and Indians are deadlocked atop the East Division with 4-2 records.  Boise has won a season-best three-straight games – thanks to their first back-to-back shutout wins since 2006.

Ian Dickson was honored yesterday as Northwest League Pitcher of the Week after tossing 11 shutout innings, allowing just four hits and striking out eight in two wins.

It is a who’s-who of Cubs brass in town, as former Boise manager and Cubs Minor League Hitting Coordinator, Tom Beyers, Infield Coordinator Bill Dancy, Catching Coordinator Marty Pevey, and Outfield/Baserunning Coordinator Lee Tinsley are all in town.  They picked the perfect five games – two vs. Tri-City, the off day (in which the group went rafting on the Payette River), then the three vs. Spokane.

For my off day, I spent it in the office at The College of Idaho, migrating web pages for our new athletic web redesign.  Was able to grill chicken and vegetables, and took a nice walk last night (though the mosquitos got me).

FOOD UPDATE: They have changed things up here at home, as both radio guys are fed by Home Plate Food Services, while the rest of the pressbox gets vouchers for what they want in concession fare.  The food has been solid throughout this trip…Food Standings through 7/29 – Chicken Sandwich (5), Pizza (5), Ham/Turkey Sandwich (5), Hot Dogs (5), Smoked Sausage (4), Pulled Pork Sandwich (4), Hamburger (4), No Food (2), Pulled Pork Nachos (2), Meatball Sandwich (3), Chicken Caesar Wrap (3), Salisbury Steak (1), Philly Cheesesteak (1), Fish & Chips (1).
