Thanks, Imref. We’ll be there Opening Night this Friday. Looks like COLD weather but thankfully no rain.


I recognize about half the names - guess the others are promotions from lower levels? 


I’ll be especially interested to see Bobby Three Sticks (Hassell) when he’s not nursing a broken wrist. I also liked C Onyx Vega last year. Keeping an eye on him.

Harrisburg has about 3-5 position players with legit shots at starting in the infield or being regulars in the outfield. The staff looks like a mixed bag but less high end potential. Henry if healthy is the potential star. Beyond that, there are lesser pieces I think.

Yo-yo has the potential to join Trey Lipscomb as one of the best non-1st round picks this org has made since MAT.  Definitely one to watch.

Agree with previous comments that there's a lot less to get excited about in the rotation.

I'd also like to see Pineda get in a healthy season and hit like he used to. I thought he was on the verge of being a major leaguer a couple of years ago.

I have a soft spot for players who break out in my Out of the Park Baseball sims. Pineda was often one of those so I'm hopeful he does it in real life too.

Not quite a Tides-level performance tonight, but the top of that lineup, at least on paper, looks :az:

Crews: 0-5, 4Ks
Hassell III: 0-3, BB, K
House: 1-3, BB, K
Morales: 1-4, 2Ks

Yep. I was there, freezing to death. It was 42 at game time, with a lovely dash of graupel and a cold breeze just to top it off. On the other hand, my beer stayed nice and cold through the game.


The Senators had the bases loaded twice, one time with the top of the order coming up, and nada. Not impressed with The Big Three (Crews, Hassell, & House) so far.


On the bright side, Andrew Alveraz threw 5 innings of no hit ball before being taken out.


The Senators pitchers racked up 14 Ks, with (I think) about half swinging and half called, but my brain was fairly frozen by that time so my impression could be wrong. On the other hand, Senators batters struck out 16 times, with more swinging than called in my mind.


The fireworks after the game were nice, though.

A stiff rum drink after the game helped.

Senator purchased by diamond baseball which owns about 30 teams now.

Diamond is owned by a PE firm.

This makes me uneasy. I hate to see it slip from local control. I’m not familiar with Diamond Baseball and what other teams they control. Time will tell, I guess.

And now it's the Senators that have been rained out in back-to-back games.

I think the Henry BBs will continue for a while until he gets used to his shoulder.

3-4, HR. Yeah, not too shabby for a bust. :)

Nice game for Andrew Pickney batting lead-off. 4-5, SB.

Double for Stone!
