Portland Press Herald: Covers the Pirates.

Ct Post: Michael Fornabaio notes in his blog he is not on this trip.


  1. I'm happy for Blake. I hope he wins. And the Portland thing.... Um... maybe they shouldn't have been so QUICK to get rid of DARRYL BOOTLAND!!!!

  2. I'm happy for Blake too and hope he wins, but my guess is he's made few friends with the Toronto Media who will be doing the heavy lifting to lobby for him to win.

    I think Isles moved Bootland for Keith around the time they got back Jackman. Kip Brennan will be back in about a week when his suspension.
