  1. Zach Rosscup has been assigned to the Hudson Valley Renegades from the GCL Rays.

  2. There are now 17 pitchers, yes you read that right, on the Hudson Valley roster.

  3. They might want to see if any of the 17 Pitchers can hit. They could play the Outfield when they aren't throwing.

    That has to be the worst hitting outfield ever assembled.

  4. I'm on my way out as I see this question, but may want to compare HV vs Princeton OF's. If I get any time tomorrow I will, but if anyone has time, might be interesting. Maybe should compare to overall 2010 team/league, 2009 OF's, and 2009 team/league. Only use guys who are primarily OF's if you decide to do it.
