We just couldn't fit them (under the cap) salary-wise.

Everybody forgets Brandon hadn't played baseball in two years (before joining the T-Bones). He should just be a junior in college.

We're looking for guys that can play defense.

He can be the Barry Bonds of this league. He's dominant and he can make everyone else better. They won't pitch to him.

We need to talk and agree on terms. There's a lot of negotiations (that take place).

I think our defense will be fine.

Both are great guys and we're going to miss them.

We'll have to wait and see if Eric can take on the responsibility.
