2. Something is happening next week (probably) according to Cast and Jocketty. I took this to mean something besides Ludwick.
3. They pretty much said Ludwick was a done deal. That brought some cheers
4. No one expects Rolen back. They have spoken to him...Dusty and Walt
5. Todd Frazier has "earned the right to start Opening Day" at 3B according to Dusty.
6. The more criticism Dusty gets the more Cast believes in him because Sparky got a lot also and was a good manager....this is very close to what Cast stated when discussing Dusty and lineup construction.
7. Billy Hamilton is "close". That was a word that Jocketty used.
8. Dusty has no butt anymore according to his wife. Yep that was stated from the stage.
What was said exactly....no clue. And apparently #2 was Choo. :O)
Pitching and defense...anything else is gravy. Mmmm...gravy.
