    thx for the posts Blades.
    amazing how well they did vertically without their ace. only other northeast team i remember being this strong is Maine back in the 80’s i believe.

    Yeah good to finally have Cate back, he threw 2 innings( in relief ) for the first time since March yesterday. It was tough replacing a guy
    who projects that high in this years MLB draft....

    Maine when they had Billy Swift in the 1980s was indeed exceptionally strong. Swift went on to have a nice major league career, with the Mariners primarily.

    Now UConn needs to do some damage. When they had Barnes and Springer back in 2012 or so I think they almost made the CWS but lost a tough one to Jackie Bradley Jr. and South Carolina. That game was billed as the "Battle of the Great Centerfielders" between Bradley and Springer. In the major leagues, Springer has been the much better player. He is an All Star while Bradley now basically a 4th outfielder with the Red Sox due to his streakiness as a hitter. Meanwhile Barnes has turned out to be a solid relief pitcher for the Red Sox.
