  1. How much longer are they gonna keep McEachern in Hudson Valley? He needs to go to port charlotte ASAP.

  2. No~we want to keep him!!! lol. Hey, whatever's best for him, although I really don't think he should bypass Bowling Green.

  3. They want to keep him away from bowling greens pitching coach who tried to change his arm angle last year, so they will prolly keep him in hv till they think hes ready for port charlotte.
