On-Deck with the Captains: 2013 season review

Development was the anchor for the Lake County Captains this year. The team certainly had its ups and downs as it finished 54-83 overall. Each element of the team had its holes, from struggling starters to a handful of ugly errors, but the team undoubtedly showed progress, which is the name of the game in the minors. The 2013 Captains were a talented group of players. Some will return...

On-Deck with the Captains: 7/17/13 - 7/23/13

Last week bore witness to another handful of losses for the Lake County Captains as they dropped four of six games at home. The bullpen continues to be problematic for the team and the offense, though productive, continues to lack timing when it comes to big hits. The starting rotation wasn't as dominant as seen in the past, but the team will look to rejuvenate itself as it begins...

The offense has added a number of home runs as they hit eight this past week, so it seems things may be starting to come together for the 28-45 squad...
