1. The rivalry between Germantown Friends School and Germantown Academy could one day carry into the big leagues. It's been well-documented in these pages that Jesse Biddle, the pride of Friends, is dominating at double-A Reading. Sean Coyle, representing Academy, has been equally as dominating as an outfielder for Boston's high-A affiliate, Salem of the Carolina League. Coyle entered play Saturday hitting .313 with seven home runs, 12 RBIs, and a 1.086 OPS.
2. The price tag for the acquisition of Michael Young from Texas was hard-throwing righthanders Josh Lindblom and Lisalverto Bonilla. At this point, thanks to Young's strong first month, the deal is weighted in the Phillies' favor, but Lindblom has a chance to make the deal worthwhile for Texas. The Rangers have made him a starter and he is 4-0 with a 1.42 ERA at triple-A Round Rock. Bonilla, meanwhile, has a 6.14 ERA in nine appearances at Round Rock.
