The sports section is a staple of triple-A clubhouses, as much a player's companion as a bag of sunflower seeds and usually more worn than a batting-practice ball on a rainy day. Minor leaguers love to check out the box scores to see how guys they know are doing. They scan major league roundups to see who got hurt. They scour the transaction column to see who got sent up, sent down or shipped out. Anything that could affect their status, they latch onto like the handle of a Louisville Slugger.
