  1. Any recent news on Jesse Hahn? With Strasburg back already, I imagine Hahn has to be almost fully recovered.

  2. I have a question for anybody- When a game is rained out, and it's made up at the other team's stadium,(since there are no more games scheduled at the first place), shouldn't the original home team be the home team for that game? Both last year and again this year, this has happened to Hudson Valley. Tri City became the home team for BOTH games of the doubleheaders. Shouldn't Hudson Valley have been the HOME team for the first game?As far as I know, HV didn't benefit in any way- Tri City didn't have to travel back to HV for a makeup game- Tri City received all the concessions money- Tri City had the benefit of being up last, etc. Does this seem right to you?

  3. No that does sound right. I can not recall a FSL series off the top of my head where that has happened. But this week it happened to the GCL Rays and they were the visiting team in their ballpark during the away game that was being made up. So the GCL seems to be doing it right. Let me look into this a little more and see what I can come up with.

  4. How about wrigley on fire!

  5. In response to the home field advantage question: The MLB official rule book does not clearly declare who has home field advantage in doubleheaders when a game is relocated due to the schedule. However in looking at this particular situation, I have learned that it is NYPL League Rules that stipulate the home team stay the same for the entire doubleheader. So in the series in question, since the game was relocated to Tri-City, Tri-City enjoys the home field advantage for both games.

    While it doesn't quite make sense, it is the official league ruling.
