Weaver Wins 7th Straight Start for Hoppers

July 11, 2016 - Chuck Weaver says his job as a starting pitcher is simple. "I try to put us in a position to win," the Hoppers' right-hander said. Lately, no one has done that better than Weaver. Tuesday night he pitched six innings, giving up two hits and one run, and the Hoppers made that stand up for a 2-1 win over West Virginia at NewBridge Bank Park. Weaver was the winning pitcher for his seventh straight start, improving his record to 9-4 with an ERA of 2.37. It was also the sixth straight game h... Full Story

"Some guys play cards and I like to listen to music," said outfielder Kyle Barrett. "But I'm always expecting to play the game, so that way I stay ready. When you start thinking it m... Full Story

Anatomy of the Chris Paddack Trade

July 4, 2016 - On Thursday I clicked on a story about the Marlins acquiring relief pitcher Fernando Rodney from the San Diego Padres. I was curious to see who was the player they gave up to get him. Maybe someone from Double-A Jacksonville, or even from high-A Jupiter, which is the norm in exchange for a 39-year-old reliever with an inconsistent career.
