Evil Dead have Divisional games for May

The 11-13 Chinese Evil Dead have 30 games set for May, all versus their divisional opponents: 10 games each with: The 11-13 Blaze, The 15-9 North Queen Spartans, and the tough 17-7 Missouri Fightin' Farmers.

Roster move: Willie Mo Pena is sent down to Tibet, to make room for rookie P Kevin Slowey. "I need more options out of the bullpen", said Manager Mark Ewing. Slowey gives up the long ball, but with games at Royals Stadium and RFK Stadium, we could keep it to a minimum."

When asked how the Dead plan to keep improving, Ewing said, "I need Pedroia to start hitting, otherwise I'll keep Upton butchering things over at second base. KGreene better start driving the ball too, Kevin Fransden may get a look at SS, we need guys to hit and drive in runs."

Evil Dead finish April with 11-13 record

The Chinese Evil Dead finished 11-13 in April. The hit .271, and ERA of 5.12. Ewing coached them to a 9-3 road record, but the opponents beat them for a 2-10 record.....what the heck...

Delmon Young is the April player of the month: he hit .345 (29-84) with 7 Dbls and 6 Hrs.

Dan Haren is the Pitcher of the month: 4-2, 2.55 ERA, 3 CGs and 1 shutOut.

Rookie Dustin Pedroia hit only .191, and Andy Sonnanstine pitched a 0-2, 8.02 era to win the Goat Awards.

Manager Mark Ewing is happy about the progress of the Evil Dead. "I really see a difference this year, especially in the hitting, Hermida, Delmon Young, Victorino, Morneau are coming through consistently with timely hits all the time, we have never had this before." Ewing knows the pitching is still a step behind. "Kyle Davies, Scott Baker and Andy Sonnanstine have been bad, and my relief has been terrible as well. We will keep plugging away, but I need my guys to learn and get ready for next year."
