Greeneville kicks it off tomorrow night

Nice article by Wayne Phillips in the Greeneville Sun about the 2010 GAstros.

Manager Ed Romero:
"We've worked out here only twice. Basically we have a group of guys that are hungry. Some have trained (in Florida) for three months. The majority have been down there. They are well-trained. Then we got some good talent from the draft."

Catcher Bubby Williams:
"They've brought older guys to Greeneville this year. The (Danville) Braves and the (Elizabethton) Twins always bring older guys to this league. I think we're stronger. I know I hit the weight room hard and I've matured some."

Outfielder Ryan Humphrey, who is returning from hip surgery in March:
"I'm not 100 percent yet, but I'm ready to get back out there. This team has good chemistry. There are more guys here out of college this year ... more maturity it seems."
