In this day and age of technology there does not appear to be an astute human being trying to scratch out a living covering the Rock Cats. That leaves speculation and less to fill the pages of TD.
And isn't it ironic, the Rock Cats are the hottest team in professional baseball, just set a team record of 10 straight wins, 12 of 13 with Rosario in the lineup. And this, even though Hicks has to be a bit of a distraction coming in late to the party and all.
The fans are the only ones who seem to be paying attention. The Cats had a sellout crowd today of 8400, and the 4th highest single-game attendance mark in their history. The Hartford Courant newspaper, whose namesake city has stolen the team, doesn't even see fit to publish game summaries, let alone assign a beat writer.
