4/22 Minor matters

Brad Snyder hit two home runs but it wasn’t enough as Iowa lost, 6-5, to Nashville on Wednesday. Casey Coleman took the loss, giving up six runs on seven hits over 5 2/3 innings. Snyder is batting .448 in a seven-game hitting streak.

Brett Jackson was hitless and snapped his hitting streak at 10 games in Daytona’s 4-1 loss to Tampa. Chris Archer took the loss, giving up three runs on seven hits over four innings.

Matt Cerda had two hits and two RBIs to lead Peoria to a 4-2 win over Kane County for the Chiefs’ sixth straight win.

Double-A Tennessee was rained out and will play a doubleheader Thursday against Carolina.

Carrie, is Brad Snyder going to wind up just another “AAAA” player? He seems to have good year after good year yet never does get a call up for a legit shot. It does appear that between Colvin, Snyder and Fuld that the Cubs would be at least covered on a temporary basis with good, solid prospects should Hendry manage to trade both Soriano and Fukodome both of which are not giving the big league team what was expected (by Hendry) and now with Sorriano at least hitting the ball he may draw interest from an AL team such a Boston. Does Sorry also have the dreaded no trade clause in addittion to the ridiculous amount of money Hendry gave him? Even so I bet Sorryiano would put his remaining career first and consider a move to becoming a DH and once and for all put his embarrassingly bad defense behind him. Don’t you think that would be a win for the Cubs and for Soriano?
