    Anyone know if Cruceta’s outing will be captured on video and whether it will be available anywhere?

    Anyone attending the game? I’d love to here how his stuff looks along with his velocity.

    I believe MiLB.com offers video for a limited number of AAA games. I think you can buy them one at a time, but you can certainly subscribe. I think it’s something like $20, and I think it works like mlb.tv so I’d imagine they have archives, too.

    In Toledo, Buckeye televises a number of the Hens’ home games so it very well may be on TV here. Thanks for the reminder to look to see if I can DVR it.

    Max St. Pierre has been in the farm system a long time. Will he ever crack the majors?
