Next up is the Hartford Snakes 2. Oddly enough the owner has been vacant for a week, and the team is on auto-pilot and doing good.
1. Richard Hartzell..... Hartzell is in AAA this season and doing very well. He has good control, very good splits, he also has 2 very very good pitches. He actually has 3 total pitches to keep hitters off balance. He has pitched 22 innings, gave up 21 hits ,0 homers, 7 walks, while fanning 17. He has 15 saves in 17 chances and a 2.45 ERA.
