    Nice interview, JC.

    Interesting that they are using 3 catchers in CR. Obviously versatility is going to be key for some of these players which is probably a good thing at their level anyway.

    They should enjoy the weather a little more through Saturday -- although it doesn't look like you're going to get the 77 degrees we're supposed to get today.

    For better or worse, the Kernels are out in Michigan through this weekend. I'm not sure what the weather is out there (it's warm, but windy, in the north Dallas area where I'm spending my week!)

    .
    Fort Myers has 3: Grimes, Turner and Rodriguez
    New Britain has 2.5: Koch, Knudson and Kvasnicka
    Rochester had 2.5: Fryer, Rohlfing and Herrmann
    The Twins now have 2.5.

    So more like the norm in the organization. They really like their Cs to get work in other positions as well...

    LOL, it even says that in the article. And next week doesn't look quite as nice (if the forecasters are right. Big if).
