  1. And now Guerrieri has his first professional win.

  2. CHANGE THAT TO 6 RENEGADES. Pitcher JOSE MOLINA is also on the AllStar team.

  3. Thank-you. I added Molina. He was not on the original roster I got from the NYP.

  4. Not your fault, Jim. Actually, they listed Marcus Jensen,instead of Jose Molina on their site---- It was a mistake, since Jensen is NOT on the All Star team at all.
    The Renegades will be flying to Ohio for the AllStar game.
