Granted we are talking about high A and AA ball but still this is just more promising news for the future, hopefully Syracuse makes the playoffs in 2011, the Nats in 2012.

The two pickups from Texas for Guzman, Tatusco and Roark, both seemed to have pitched well for Harrisburg. Nice to see the talent pool growing.
