    Hartford Harriers - 2011 Season

    Post by George on Tue Mar 02, 2010 9:11 pm

    And so it begins. The Harriers' inaugural season is about to start. This thread will provide the latest news and information on the team and its 2011 campaign.

    Things got off to a rocky start. The deal that sent 1B Gustavo Vélez to Brooklyn was met with less than favorable reviews. Fans didn't like it, and the rumor is that several GMs also thought the deal was a farce. In any event, it's done and time will tell whether it was a bad move or not.

    The mood turned a little more positive during spring training. After a rough start, the team showed some promise and ended up going 13-11 and finishing at the top of the Ruth Division.

    Attention now turns to Phoenix. The Harriers start the season by hosting the Dry Heat for a two-game series. Newly-signed SP Jorge Carmona has been named the opening day starter. He'll lead a suspect pitching staff, though big things are expected from closer Rafael Chávez.

    The offense is a mixed bag. Lodewijk Meilaart and Sean Collins will share the catching duties and should give the team some options. 1B Carlos Deleón leads the infielders, but he'll need some help. 3B José Carlos Murillo will have to contribute if the team is to have any success. LF Aurelio Méndez heads up an average outfield, though depth could be an issue.

    With a weak farm system, the draft will be critical. Hartford has two first-round picks, and they'll need to use them wisely.

    The team owner has stated that he expects a .500 season. While possible, that may be asking too much. We shall see.

    Interesting start for us as we go 3-2 on the week. We lose both games to Phoenix at home and follow that up by sweeping Cochester on the road.

    LF Aurelio Méndez hit two HR versus Cochester. Not to be outdone, C Lodewijk Meilaart hit two HR against Colchester the following day.

    Our pitching had a rough start to the season. Let's hope that changes.

    Not a great week for us. We go 2-4 as our pitchers fail to get it done. The only exception is Wilson Ortiz, who is 2-0 in two starts. Our offense is a mixed bag. We're getting on base, but we can't seem to score runs.
