Yesterday was the first day that we didn't have to pull tarp in over a week and to say that it was a brutal stretch is an understatement.  We appreciate all of you that have ridden out what Mother Nature tossed at us the past week-and-a-half.


Yesterday's transactions: Chris Errecart was released, Mat Gamel  was

transferred to Nashville to continue his ML Rehab, Chuckie Caufield and Mark Rogers returned to Huntsville from Nashville, Dan Merklinger returned to Brevard County and Anderson de la Rosa was brought up from Brevard County.
