Whenever Vladimir Guerrero Jr. comes up to the major leagues — next week, next month or later than that — he will have the baseball world’s full attention.Former MLB player and manager Joe Girardi will certainly be paying attention to the 20-year-old Blue Jays phenom. “If he hits 25 home runs, I think you’re excited. If he hits about .250, I think you’re really excited,” he told Virk and Nelson. “Obviously, you’re going to see much, much better pitching on a consistent basis. You’re going to see bullpens that you’ve never seen before, and he doesn’t know any pitchers.”Do I think he can do more than that? Absolutely. If you survive that first year as a young player after teams have seen you a second time and a third time in your division, you’re going to be a good player.”Guerrero has been hitting like a big leaguer in his first week with Triple-A Buffalo this season. He has two home runs (one was a monster shot vs. Scranton/Wilkes-Barre), six RBIs and a .412/.500/.824 slash line in five games. “I’m excited because you want to see your best players up, and I think he’s one of their best players,” Girardi, now an analyst for MLB Network, told Adnan Virk and Stephen Nelson on DAZN’s “ChangeUp” on Friday. Girardi was reacting to a report that Guerrero would make his MLB debut Tuesday.Guerrero was bidding to make Toronto’s Opening Day roster when he suffered an injury in spring training. The Jays sent him to the minor leagues for conditioning (and, many suspect, to gain an extra year of contractual control per MLB rules). The Blue Jays can control Guerrero’s rights through at least the 2025 season now that he will accrue fewer than 171 days of major league service time this year.MORE: Watch ‘ChangeUp,’ a new MLB live whiparound show on DAZN It appears Vlad Jr.’s time is coming, even if there were conflicting reports Friday about the date. Hector Gomez, a reporter in the Dominican Republic, reported that Guerrero would make his MLB debut Tuesday, but TSN’s Scott Mitchell reported that his sources said there would need to be an injury this weekend for Guerrero to come up that soon. The sources said there was a “1%” chance Guerrero would join the Jays next week.As for what Guerrero can do once he gets to the Show, Girardi is optimistic.
Amber CountrymanSubmitted to Sumner Newscow â€” On Monday, August 24, at 6:30 p.m, Amber Schmitz, a Sumner NewscowÂ writer, will present â€œThe History of Druryâ€ to Sumner County Historical and Genealogical Society members and guests at the Good Taste Chinese Buffet, 1311 E. 16th.Â St., Wellington.Â No cost for the program; guests are welcome, and meal time is 5:30 to 6:30 p.m..Â For possible weather cancellations, contact Jane Moore at 620-447-3266 or the restaurant at 620-399-8401.When Amber Schmitz moved to Drury at the age of 7, she enjoyed playing on the old schoolhouse playground and walking over the cement bridge that was built over the Chikaskia River in the 1920â€™S. She also enjoyed the interesting stories that she began hearing about her new hometown.The stories fascinated her.There were stories about a booming little river resort with boats, a beach, and a hotel for the vacationers that came by train and stagecoach. And there were stories about a grocery store owner that disappeared and nearly 100 years later, may (or may not) be â€˜buriedâ€™ in one of the cement bridge supports.Â And there was also a story about a man that woke up, saw an axe hanging just over his head, and screamed so loud that all the dogs barked and the neighbors all woke up.Schmitz found these stories compelling, and she has written them down, collected photographs, and explored the possibilities of some of the legends being true.Â â€œIâ€™ve wanted to write a book about Drury since I was 14 or 15,â€ Schmitz said, â€œEvery time some older person told me something, I went home and wrote it down in a notebook.â€If you have photographs or stories about Drury, Schmitz would very much like to connect with you for the book she is working on.
