WINSLOW, AZ-The Equinox are hankerin' to make some noise in the Aaron Division race as Casey Stengel enters his 80th year of managing. Stengel quips, "We're a little heavy with those righty-hitting fellas, and you know how I like lefties, being one of those southpaws and all, but we can put five lefties in the line-up if we have to and that rope-hair guy can take a few swings lefty if he wants, he just stands there and watches the ball when he hits it anyway." At least Vernal's pitching is balanced, with lefties C.C. Sabathia and Gio Gonzalez and righties Tim Hudson and Brett Myers. Colby Lewis will get some outings also. Newcomers OF Chris Heisey, OF Jose Tabata, 1B Ike Davis, and IF Jonathan Herrera are giving a new, younger look to the team. It's going to be hard to protect all those guys come September. ROSTER MOVES (2/17/2011) DESIGNATED FOR ASSIGNMENT: DH Carlos Delgado, 2B Luis Castillo, SP Jason Marquis, RP George Sherrill, RP Jason Frasor. SIGNED TO A NEW CONTRACT: C David Ross from the Malibu Wave roster. Stengel comments again, from his Glendale, California, retirement home, "I don't know what Ross was doing putting himself on that Horny Toad roster with all those beachy boys. Isn't it enough I have to deal with two artificial knees, two replacement hips, ill-fitting dentures I made myself, I used to be a dentist you know, and the heartbreak of psoriasis all winter and these youngbucks go do whatever fits their fancy whilst I'ma tryin' to figure out this new HD TV so's I can watch Prime Nine?"
