Roster Updates

Unlike in previous years, there was little last minute roster activity yesterday. The 5.0 division saw its usual last second scurrying to sign up on a couple of teams. Lost Forest added some of its usual cast of characters (Bryan Taylor) and a new name in Frederic Saint-Louis. I've got no info on him, but I'm guessing he's a player. Allen Teague, as always, filled up his roster at the eleventh hour. His roster has some new names: 19 year old stud Varun Pandit, John Guerrero and Pedro Gedda (who self rated as a 3.0).

In 4.5 there was little activity. Maybe the Hangovers have no ringers this year? Doubtful. I'm sure they're saving them for their "big" match next week with Kingwood. Ssshhhwings filled out their roster a bit, but nothing earth shattering. Justin Benoit might help them out, but their singles still seems weak. Maybe the most interesting development in 4.5 rosters was the fact that Lost Forest didn't fill theirs up. Lost Forest was not going to be a factor regardless, but if they DO try to play and field 4.0 talent each week or even default lines every week, the other teams in that bracket (Ssshhhwings and a surprising Westside (more on that later)) might dramatically improve their chances of taking the wild card spot by fattening up their records. Kingwood or the Hangovers could get left out of the playoff mix. I doubt that will happen, but it's something to keep an eye on.

In 4.0 the rosters were almost completely filled well in advance. There were a few late additions, but it remains to be seen if any of them are difference makers.

I didn't get a chance to make it out to the courts last night, so my results update will have to wait until I get a little more news and info on the matches last night. There was at least one upset on the night, however...
