AAA Rotation Announced

From the SWB Yankees homepage:

"The Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees have announced the five man starting rotation that will begin the season. Starting opening night April 5 vs. Norfolk will be RHP Tyler Clippard, followed by RHP Phil Hughes on Friday, RHP Ross Ohlendorf, RHP Matt DeSalvo and RHP Steven Jackson."

Our boy Tyler Clip gets the Opening Day nod over Phil Franchise. That rotation may be better than the Pirates, Devil Rays, Royals, Nationals, Rockies, and Mariners. Maybe. Anyway, it's got to be the best rotation at any level below the Major Leagues. Should be fun to keep up with SWB this season. Great pen to go with the starting pitching (Bean, Beam, Britton). Nice infielders (Cannizaro, Basak, Gonzalez, Juan Miranda, Andy Phillips). Speed in the outfield (The Kevins and Bronson Sardinha). Stay tuned. (Scroll down for my take on Opening Day).
