So next year we have 2 weekend starters [Sullivan and Ludman] coming back plus 2017 weekend starter [B Walter] with a mix of new freshman [Dubecq, Silan, and Nunan].

Lets not forget about the midweek starters in Allen and Haass. That's 6-8 good pitchers...we just need some bats to show up.

I also forget Ryan

Even though Hinton is gone, the pitching staff will be a good one with Sullivan, Walter, and Ludman returning. If Nunan doesn't sign, we will have a stellar staff. Patton was a great asset, but the best hitter on the team, with the best speed to boot once the leg fully heals, is Baker. The Blue Hens are fortunate to have him back for another year.

Besides Baker, what offense do we have coming in for 2018?

Baker, Molholland, and Hutchins are the only hitters returning that batted over .300 this past season. After that, no one has yet proven they can help much at the plate. Miller, Bowren, and Callender may come around, but all three sported low averages this year. We are in sore need of a couple of transfers who can hit the ball with some power.

Did Danny Nunan sign or is he making the smarter move and coming to UD to play college ball for three years? Did Patton sign?

I've seen that both Nunan and Patten signed.

Cape Cod is the best of the best. No one on this past year’s team would come close to playing in it. Maybe Sullivan next year if he can continue to get better. However, there are some Hens playing in pretty good other leagues.

Baker and Patten both played in the Cape Cod League last summer, so Baker, who was on this year's team and returns next year, comes close to playing in it this summer.

Yes, brain fart and my apologies to Baker. He went up to the Cape late in the season last year.

I obviously wasn’t including guys who were just drafted. Both Patten and Hinton would be headed there had they not been drafted. Speaking of them, Patten just got his first start for the Gulf Coast League Pirates. Hinton has been assigned to the Royals rookie affiliate in Burlington.
