  1. I've never seen Hudson Valley so messed up with pitching as it is this year. This daily piggy back rotation is crazy. It's not only unfair to the pitchers, but also to the coaches who have to try to give them all some playing time. There are so many pitchers there.(17) Some relievers are only getting 1 inning/week. (and they're not even closers.) I thought it would have been corrected by now, but it's not. Move these guys around, please, so they can get some playing time somewhere.
