    AZL Giants slap a six-spot down. Lead 8-2 as they stretch in the 7th.

    Well, crap. Giants blew up for 6 in the bottom of the 6th and lead 8-2.

    How do you like it now that the Giants have scored 6 runs in the sixth? Guess you could say that they dispensed some Justice.

    Looks like we've got that 6-spot covered.

    French did not offer much resistance. After the fifth inning one might say that French was toast.

    Are these stout young men (I'm thinking maybe Selsky, May, Joyce, Chacin) eligible now to offer assistance to Billings' run to the playoffs?

    The Minors

    In the minor leagues, the rosters are managed in quite a different manner than the standard 25-man rosters in the majors. Minor league teams keep two separate lists of players. The first is the Active List which, like in the NFL, denotes which players are eligible for the current game while the second list, the Reserve List, is the entire roster of the team.


    For A teams, the Active List limit is 25 players, for Short-Season A teams, 30 and for Rookie Teams, 35. All levels below AA allow clubs a Reserve Limit of 35 players. Below A-ball, only 25 players may actually get into a single game.
    Billings current roster: http://web.minorleaguebaseball.com/m...=true&sid=t513

    So if the article is correct Billings can have 35 players on both the active and reserve rosters. However, only 25 of them can actually play in one game. The current Mustang's website shows they have 32 players on the active and reserve rosters. So, they can actually "pilfer" three players from the AZL Reds roster at this time. If my skills mathematic are to be trusted.
