Cyclones Win, Their Website Loses

The Cyclones won their second yesterday. Chris Hilliard, the game's starter, won.

I was interested in getting more information about him, so checked the Players section on the Cyclones website. It revealed very little. Fortunately, this discussion board provides much better information.

That's not the only problem on their site. Their boxscores contain a Log link and a Wrap link; however, when you click them, nothing appears. If the Cyclones don't think fans are interested in game logs, they're WRONG!

Pete Spiewak wrote an informative article on the Cyclones' players. His article ends with this paragraph:
"The Cyclones’ roster is not complete. The Mets still have not signed four out of their first five picks, all college players, so Backman’s squad may very well have a different look later in the season. There is speculation that Matt Harvey, the team’s number one pick out of North Carolina, may be shut down for the remainder of the season after logging 96 innings for the Tar Heels this spring, but if he signs, he probably will be assigned to Brooklyn. The club is still waiting to finalize contracts with Forsythe, centerfielder Matt den Decker of Florida, and right-handed pitcher Greg Peavey of Oregon State, the Mets’ second-, fifth- and sixth-round picks."
It's interesting that he states that Harvey — if and when he signs (Boras is his agent) — might not pitch for the Mets this season. Do the Mets have the smarts to do that?
