    Billings Mustangs - 2013

    The season will be opening up in Billings in about a week and a half. First game will be on June 20th. They have just re-upped with the Reds and will be an affiliate through 2016.

    A very tentative roster. Only 8 pitchers and 1 position player listed. It won't be long now.

    I don't believe that is a tentative roster, but just the left overs from last year that haven't played yet this season.

    You are probably right. It is all I saw. Radhames Quezada played this year at Bakersfield. Although, as a procedural move, they may have slipped him back onto the Billings' roster. In any case, it is getting pretty close.

    I would swap whatever was on this team with the Pensacola team.

    That Pensacola club is pretty hard to look at.

    off-topic: Those old school Mustangs uni's, specifically the hat, are nice. It kinda sucks, in my opinion, that the vast majority of minor league teams need to be all gimmicky with names/hats/jerseys/etc to sell tickets.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    I don't know how accurate it is though. It has far too many players listed, including a few guys who are currently either in Dayton or on the Dayton DL.

    that's purity common with SS leagues. The players might stay behind in Az injured but they still have to be assigned for paper transactions.

    Doesn't explain why Pedro Diaz is on the roster. Or Carlos Sanchez. Both are currently on the Dayton roster.
