Chomping at the bit
We’re just two days away from Minor League Opening Day and needless to say, we’re a little excited to get the ball rolling here…
Let me give you some insight into all the things we have planned for our Opening Day coverage. First, we’ve got our journal writers. And what a lineup we’ve got. On he mound, we’ve got a pair of southpaws. There’s the Cubs’ Donnie Veal and the Blue Jays’ Ricky Romero. Offensively, a duo of outfielders join our squad: the Indians’ Trevor Crowe and the Yankees’ Jose Tabata. In addition, we’ll have the unique and insightful commentary of Devil Rays’ outfielder Fernando Perez.
Of course, it’s not just the players themselves doing the talking on MiLB.com. Kevin Czerwinski has a column that will put everyone in the mood for baseball. Lisa Winston will bring us a Rule 5 recap and a look at some of the more intriguing names who’ll be pacing dugouts as Minor League managers in 2007. Yours truly has a run-down on where all of the 2006 first-round draft picks are headed to start the season.
And that’s just Wednesday.
On Opening Day itself, I’ll be in Dayton to check in on Drew Stubbs and company. Kevin C. travels to Scranton to check out that absolutely loaded rotation. And Lisa will be on blog duties all Opening Day, giving you up-to-the-minute updates on what’s going on all around Minor League Baseball. There are 59 Opening Day games on tap, so keep checking back here if you want the low-down on what’s going on nation-wide. — Jonathan
