Freedom Championship Series

Lots of interesting stuff and difficult decisions yet to be made by Lancaster and York.

Playoff rosters must be submitted to the league by noon Wednesday.

* York infielder Ramon Castro visited a doctor for a painful skin ailment that could keep him out of the playoffs — according to manager Andy Etchebarren. Castro was the postseason MVP last season for York. Although Castro played Sunday, he has been bothered by this condition earlier in the season and it forced him to miss games.

* Lancaster needs to make a decision on starter Matt Wright, who many figured would start Game 1. If he’s activated, Lancaster will have to deactivate another player.

* York welcomed back outfielder Val Majewski, who until recently had been playing for Triple-A Round Rock in the Rangers system. Majewski last played on Sept. 5. He batted .333 in 35 games at Triple-A.

* Lancaster welcomed back York resident and former big league pitcher Tim Hamulack, who until recently was pitching for Double-A Carolina in the Reds system.

* Revs right-hander Corey Thurman will start Game 1.

* Onetime Barnstormers closer Jeff Bennett goes for Lancaster.

    Don’t want to say much here! GOOD OLD Etch, does it again! SO was Val in the Club House, when Etch made the Comment TO HIS Players, “This is it, we are not making anymore changes” We are going to finish this with the guys in the Club House we have now!!!

    Yes Val is a Rev, played a few years and a great Player!! BUT what did he have to do with Winning the Second Half?? Can not blame a guy for leaving and going to Organized Ball! BUT HOW does the player, or players that will be affected by him in the Lineup for the PLAYOFFS feel?????????

    Put your heart in their shoes! FANS! Would you like to take a back seat knowing you were the one here helping the team get to where they wanted to be, then your NOT GOOD ENOUGH!

      Were you in the club house when Etch made the comment. Probably not. Val is returning to help the team as they need a player due to injury and another who, self proclaimed, isn’t swinging the bat very well right now and fears injury. You can go to someone who has not impacted the Revs or you can call on someone who is willing to help out in a time of need who has played over half the season with this club. You can’t say that Val didn’t have a hand in helping this season, second half or not. He is still a Revolution player who loves this team and the guys on it. If the Team is happy to have him back (the guys in the club house) you should be too. Maybe you should get the real “inside pitch” before you post something like that.

      I hope he comes out swinging and make you eat your words. If you were a true Revolution Fan you would care about what is best for the team and be grateful that Val sacrificed certain things in his life to come back and support a team that he considers to be his family.
