Former Kings in the MLB Playoffs

Thumbnail image for Thumbnail image for 09 postseason.JPGWhen the 2009 MLB Playoffs officially kick off this evening, the Midwest League will be well-represented.  Rather than dig up every Postseason participant that ever spent a day in the league, I’ll focus on former LumberKings (or Clinton players in general) that will vie for the World Series trophy this year:

Phillies:  None Active (John Mayberry, Jr. (’06) left off playoff roster)

Red Sox:  Jason Bay (’01)

Angels:  Manager Mike Scioscia (Clinton catcher in ’77), Gary Matthews, Jr. (’95)

That appears to be it.  I won’t do a full playoff prediction for the big leagues like I did the Midwest League, but my support will be behind the Colorado Rockies.  Manager Jim Tracy never played for a Clinton squad, but his son Chad Tracy was a LumberKing in ’07.

Jason Bay is a machine for his team. He sure did come into his own for the Sox. That was a smart trade that they did. Its cool that hes from Clinton too. Good luck to them in the POs.
