Zephyrs defeated the Oklahoma City RedHawks by the final score of 10-8 in a game lasting 4 hours, 54 minutes. West has not worked an MLB game during the 2013 regular season and crew #2 Sam Holbrook has taken over crew chief responsibilities; incidentally, Holbrook leads all crew chiefs with 6 points in the UEFL's Crew Division. Thursday night's Country Joe sighting was reported by UEFL'ers backjudgejohn and indicates West is one step closer in a return to big league ball. Other umpires who have yet to work an MLB regular season game in 2013 include Brian Gorman and Brian Runge.

Runge always seems to miss lots of time every year. Anybody know why?

Why is Joe working a PCL game? I didn't know he was this a rehab assignment?

Lindsay said...

Yes this is a rehab assignment. Gary Cederstrom and Rob Drake worked Triple A games in New Orleans for a week before returning this week.

What is he rehabbing?
