Opening Day Washed Away

Well, as predicted, all four affiliates were indeed washed out today. It was bad enough in upstate New York wash away tomorrow’s game, too.

Still no word on who will start and when in Harrisburg, just a clue that it’s not RHP Gabriel Arias, who was placed on the DL and replaced with RHP Mark Blackmar (who did start nine games for the Senators). There’s been a couple of stories focused on Erick Fedde, and then there’s been this.

Via Insidenova.com, we’ve learned Hector Silvestre, Jefry Rodriguez, Joan Baez, Wirkin “For the Weekend” Estevez will follow Luis Reyes in the rotation. Take a peek at the link to see how the lineup shapes up.

Finally, in the the latest BA Transaction post, some more Washington minor-leaguers have been released…
• RHP Matt Tindall
• LHP Stone Speer
• C Brian Jeroloman
• 1B Shawn Pleffner
• OF Fernelys Sanchez

Finger crossed we can finally get this party started on Friday.

  1. Luke great dog in the yellow rain slick
    Weather and the Marmelos june return causes one to wait til june to see how formidable the Sens will be
    Not to mention rotation durability.
    June could see Marmelos return and
    Robles promotion .
    Every year ,Luke, we see these free agents signed but never prove themselves worthy to gain a full season affiliation roster slot .
