  1. I'm thinking about catching the stone crabs game tonight to see Cruz. If I go I'll take some HD footage and post on youtube. Is Kirby Yates a starter now? I thought he was a reliever.

  2. Kirby Yates is starting for the Hot Rods now, He bumped Aaron Dott from the rotation.

  3. Bob,

    I'm eager to see what you have on Cruz. Can you let me know what his velocity is?
