  1. How soon till a Cody Rogers promotion?

  2. Cody just got to Bowling Green, so let's see if his hitting continues. Besides, there are already a lot of good outfielders at Port Charlotte~Fronk, Velasquez, Vogt, Murrill. I'll tell you who desperately needs help in the outfield-Hudson Valley- Check out their batting averages (Reynolds, Bryles, Winder).Help!

  3. You know, they don't just move players to make people happy. Who really cares if HV dosen't have an outfield. Don't put a good prospect (Rogers) there.

  4. Second-round pick Jake Thompson will make his first pro start on Saturday for the Hudson Valley Renegades. You can read more at

  5. They certainly are not hitting in Hudson Valley. But the team on a whole isnt doing too bad some inconsistent pitching too many LOB all leading to loses.

  6. To the other Anonymous- "Who really cares if HV doesn't have an outfield," I CARE!

  7. Well guess what? HV has plenty of fine players in Dietrich and Thompson. But they aren't going to stunt a top prospects baseball growth to make you happy.
