Last year I thought they were fielding a team that could be beaten by a lot of Low A teams. I predicted the worst record in Red Wing Franchise history and the city of Rochester would collectively throw the team into Canada. Instead Glynn kept the team together and they made the playoffs

I will never doubt Gene Glenn again! I think they will be undefeated.

Good stuff.

Eric Farris will not be the DH :) One of the corner OFs, Cs, or 1B not playing on the field (Ramirez, Parmelee, Nelson, Rahl, Rohlfing, Herrmann, Fryer etc.) Farris will be the UT IF

As far as starting pitching goes, despite the fact that they gave him the opening day assignment, Diamond is the 4th best starter in the group behind Meyer, May and Kris Johnson. And Darnell will be pushing him....

Great article. Can't wait to be sitting at Frontier Field with a dog and a beer watching Meyers deal. I have very high expectations for this Wings team.

Has the rotation order been set? Is the way they are listed in the article the projected order?

Yes on both counts.

Unfortunate for me, I was hoping to maybe catch Meyer in Lehigh Valley next week. That doesn't seem too likely.

Any chance that Vargas pushes his way up to the 1B job in Rochester by midseason? Seems like he's a one-level-per-year kind of guy, but with Sano out and Rosario as a question mark, I'm eager (maybe too eager) to see some more young hitters pick up the slack. Especially when that young hitter happens to be a 6-5 switch hitter who claims to be 275 lbs on Bbref.

I would think Parmelee plays 1B fairly often. Positional flexibility is what will get him on a roster as a backup.

Only 104IP for Meyer last season. Will he be on an innings limit this season?

I will be catching Darnell (Sat) and Diamond (Sun) there. Are you local to ironpig land?

about 40 miles south. moved to the area last summer. was thinking about maybe trying to make friday night work, but may have to end up waiting till later in the season. wouldn't mind catching May, I still have high hopes for him.
