Roster Time!

Rosters for the full season minor league teams came trickling out this week with Opening Day on Thursday. This is absolutely the most hectic week in the life of a minor baseball staffer. The games bring a sweet rhythm but this week is a mad dash.

Note: I have 17 of 25 roster spots accounted for.

Binghamton
