    Erick Almonte homers in both games of a doubleheader

    Navigators Split Doubleheader

    Jul 29 At Norwich, the Navigators split a doubleheader with the Binghamton Mets by winning the first game 5-2 and losing the second 5-4 in front of 3,568 fans. In game one, Danny Borrell won his 7th game and Domingo Jean notched his 13th save of the year as Erick Almonte hit a two run homer. In game two, David Shepard took the loss but retired 16 in a row at one point. Almonte homered again but the Gators fell short. Norwich is now 57-48 on the year.

    Too late for Almonte

    This is the second season in a row that the Yanks have had to demote him to motivate him to play to his potential. Not only has this frustrated the Yanks to no end, but it likely has killed all his trade value. He has likely been reduced to a trade throw-in. If the Yanks are lucky, they may be able to use him to swing a deal for a lefty before August runs out, but it might be too late. You have to believe that opposing scouts have also seen the indifference that has lead to the same demotion 2 years running and have him on the red flag list.

    He is perhaps the most BLOCKED prospect in baseball. He should have made the Team out of spring training instead of Enrique.

    I agree

    I'm surprised he hasn't been traded yet. Teams could get him at a discount, and he could turn into a very solid major leaguer.
