Say goodbye to Drive’s Hunter Strickland

When I heard that Hunter Strickland of the Greenville Drive had been traded to Pittsburgh last week I went looking through my files to find an appropriate photo for this blog entry. I think this is it.
I’m not sure exactly why, but it just has a feel to it that says: Traded? You’re kidding. What now?
Update: This just in from MiLB: Tonight Hunter Strickland “combined with Diego Moreno on the [West Virginia Power’s] first no-hitter as a Pirates affiliate as the Power blanked the Charleston RiverDogs, 4-0, in front of 1,296 fans at Appalachian Power Park.”
