A little preview

I’m uploading the videos from last night’s championship game (a process which could take anywhere from seven hours to three years), but I figured I’d give a little preview, along with some notes heading in to the weekend. First, the notes.

-I’m pushing the Matt Hague interview to Monday. I’ll also have interviews with Jordy Mercer and Josh Harrison next week.
-I’m putting together video recaps of Chase d’Arnaud, Jordy Mercer, and Josh Harrison, to give a view of the middle infield prospects in Lynchburg.
-I also have a few more season ending recaps of the minor league teams (Indianapolis, Lynchburg, and the 2008 and 2009 draft picks). Those will go up next week.
-I’ll probably have the entire championship game video recap tomorrow. For now…
