  1. When Josh first went down, the hope was he would be back by the Third Round of the playoffs and that is this week.

    He needs to be right to return and if he is not ready he will not go….Arm needs to be in great shape to return to the mound and he has a bright future ahead of him and no need to put that at risk,,,

    Josh is doing a very good job helping his team with his bat and the kid can hit, even if he isn’t available to pitch….Very impressive at the plate, as of late….

    The old one-two of Cotter and Ouzts has been clicking quite well and sticking with that approach could well be the key to victory…

    Now if you hit a Game Three, you may want to turn to Joe Millwee and Bryant Carrey has some innings under his belt this year/season too….
