Giants promote LHP Misch from Triple-A Fresno

San Francisco purchased the contract of
left-hander Patrick Misch from Triple-A Fresno on Tuesday.

To make room for Misch on the 40-man roster, the Giants had to
recall righty Kelyn Acosta from Single-A San Jose and place on him
on the 60-day disabled list with a right elbow strain.

Misch was 4-2 with a 4.02 ERA in 65 innings at Fresno .

The Giants used seven pitchers in a 20-8 loss to Colorado on
Monday. Giants manager Felipe Alou could insert Misch, who made 10
starts at Fresno , if another game gets out of hand.

“That's why Misch is here,” Alou said. “I like him because he
could give us a number of innings.”

Misch walked out of the clubhouse Tuesday trying to quickly
break in his new Giants hat.

“It's great to be out here,” Misch said. “They told me to
stay on my toes and be ready whenever. I'm ready.”


A desperate cry for help (finding UCLA tickets) from Brian Schanning

Hi Tom:

Just got around to reading our Class notes.  Immediately struck with how
far forward in the notes sections '68 has moved over the years.  Second,
was the number of deaths you reported.  Having the good sense to be born
in December, I'm still stubbornly holding on to 59, but must sadly
report that Mr. (Robert L.) Brady has succumbed and has been upgraded to an LX model with many of our other classmates.

Real reason for email?  Can you point me to anyone that is likely to
have access to or knows where I could get 2 tix to the UCLA game on
10/21.  I would like them for some friends of ours who live in Niles,
MI.  I tried using Brady's application, but obviously he's not giving
enough, and it didn't win anything.

In return for your help I submit some notes on recent adventures.

Sailing continues to be a major adventure for Sue and me in the summer.
Bob and Margaret Brady joined us aboard our sailboat during a recent
cruise this summer.  They were aboard for our passage down the East
River and Manhattan.  Despite the overcast skies, we were all grins as
we came around a bend to see the Statue of Liberty bathed in bright
sunlight, despite the gray conditions everywhere else.

Labor Day weekend we traveled to Cleveland to see John and Mary
Mulligan's daughter Jennifer get married.  John was my best man, and I
was his best man, which bought me some needed credibility with all the
relatives we got to meet.  Also in attendance was classmate Bob Raaf.
Bob, who was also a fellow NROTC grad, kept us informed of the Georgia
Tech scores, via text messages from his son Tom, '05.  Sue and I stayed
with the Raafs, who will have their own adventure Sept 16 when daughter
Amy gets married.

Since retiring post the techology bubble, we have been spent summers
sailing our 37 foot sailboat along the Atlantic coast from Cape Breton,
Nova Scotia to the Chesapeake.  We're hoping to head down the
Intercoastal Waterway in Fall 07.

Hope all is well and you're back up to full speed again.

Best to Nancy and let me know if you will be at the UCLA game.




Mike Farnam's nephew Alex LaGory a co-producer of “So Goes the Nation” film

John Walsh sent this information about the film “So Goes the Nation.”  Mary Michael Farnam's nephew Alex LaGory is a co-producer.

Happy Labor Day, everybody!
Watch for a new film in your neighborhoods in the coming weeks–“So Goes the Nation.”  It's been selected and premiers at the Toronto Film Festival that starts this week.  It's scheduled to open around the U.S. after that, before the November mid-term election.   It's the story of the 2004 election as it played out in Ohio, which became the pivotal state for the Return of G.W.  The segments filmed in Cincinnati were co-produced by Mike Farnham's nephew, Alex LaGory.
Best regards,
John Walsh
