  1. Cue the Elio Morricone theme from
    Good bad and the ugly

  2. Is enough of the GCL team still in the GCL that they will be good, or are promotions the clear reason why Hagerstown is so good? Probably best if it is the latter, so that the same guys are still producing at the next level.

    • Many of the GCL guys will be in Auburn, so we’ll see soon. There are only a couple pitchers (Silvestre, Giolito, maybe one more), Ward, and Bautista from the GCL team in Hagerstown this season.
