New RML Season

Next week the 2007 RML season begins in earnest. The Pelicans are ready with a fairly good team, although we are in a tough division.

Our starting pitching is solid with John Lackey, Aaron Cook, Cliff Lee, Aaron Sele, Horacio Ramirez, John Lester, and Brett Tomko. The closer is J. J. Putz, with a bullpen that includes Mike Gonzalez, Josh Hancock, Scott Downs, Latroy Hawkins, Dan Kolb, and Tomko.

Our line-up is better than it has been for quite a while. At first we platoon Sean Casey and Wes Helms, we have Ronnie Belliard at second, Ronnie Cedeno and Abraham Nunez at short, Mark Bellhorn and Omar Infante at third, Melky Cabrera in right field, Gary Matthews in center, Brady Clark and Bobby Kielty in left, Miguel Olivo and Ryan Doumit behind the plate, dhs are Frank Catalanotto and Ryan Garko, and extra outfielders are Gabe Kapler and Chris Denofrio.

But as I said, we're in a tough division.
