    Watching this Durham game, I have a few questions:

    (1) Does Ray Olmedo have a shot at the major league club? I don’t know much about him, but he seems like he can flat out hit.
    (2) Could we get anything for Ruggiano? He’s always seemed to me like someone that could be very useful to a team, and if he’s never going to play for the Rays, why not give him a shot elsewhere?
    (3) Joe Bateman seems like he has great stuff- What about him as the righty sidewinder to take Chadford’s spot next year? (Again, don’t know anything about him, in fact have never heard of him until now).
