All-Star reads

The Triple-A season resumes today while the major leagues get back at it Friday. The Bisons are off to Pawtucket to open a four-game series tonight and they have to hope Valentino Pascucci's big swings at all the Triple-A All-Star Game can get his bat going. Pascucci, remember, is only batting .229 for Buffalo this year but he definitely was the star of the show among fans here the last three days.

If you missed some of our All-Star coverage today, here's a quick read. 

The PCL pitching controlled the game -- 11 pitchers, 11 strikeouts and a five-hit shutout -- as the IL bats couldn't produce any drama. 

Jerry Sullivan talks to Bisons operators Bob and Mindy Rich about how the night had a clear throwback feeling to 1988. 

Two shutout innings for Matt Harvey.  The Bisons ace is drawing more and more attention in New York in the wake of Dillon Gee's shoulder surgery. I say he's very, very close to being ready for the big leagues. If he's lights-out when he pitches here Monday against Toledo, the Mets are going to be very tempted to pull the trigger.

A great night for St. Francis' Jim Negrych.  Got a couple nice ovations, got the IL's last hit.

Add luncheon speaker Tom Seaver to the list of folks thinking Reggie Jackson spoke out of turn on the Hall of Fame in Sports Illustrated.
