Breaking News -- Isaac Hess a Red Sox

As predicted in my July 4th post "Bibens-Dirkx Signed by Chicago Cubs" (and contrary to opinions expressed in the T-C), Isaac Hess was the second Seals player to be signed by an MLB team this year. Hess was signed by the Boston Red Sox during last night's Golden League All Star Game.

This is a big blow to the team's chances in the second half. With their top two starters now signed by big-league organizations, Roberto Sotolongo is the only reliable starter currently on the Seals roster. Who knows, maybe Saturday's tryout camp in Victoria will unearth some local pitching talent.
