Future Thunder on display in Lakewood

The Charleston RiverDogs, the Yankees' Low-A affiliate in the South Atlantic League, are coming to New Jersey for a four-game set with the Lakewood BlueClaws (Phillies) starting tomorrow. I will be at the first three games of the tilt, and will see the following pitching matchups:

RHP Jose Ramirez (3-4, 3.51) vs. RHP Josh Zeid (5-3, 3.09)
RHP Brett Marshall (1-1, 2.86) vs. RHP Brody Colvin (5-6, 3.67)
LHP Josh Romanski (4-2, 3.28) vs. RHP Trevor May (1-1, 5.06)

These games make me as eager to see baseball as I have been all year. I've seen none of the Charleston hurlers, and am excited to get a second look at Colvin and a first look at May, who started the year in Clearwater.

Of course, that's only the pitchers.

The RiverDogs also have Slade Heathcott and J.R. Murphy, the Yanks' first- and second-round picks from 2009. In total, Charleston has six of New York's first dozen selections from a year ago. The others are: Sean Black, Rob Lyerly, DeAngelo Mack and Neil Medchill.

Lots of pictures and videos to come over the next three days.
