Welcome back to the Monday Morning Manager, sorry for our recent absence. Things have been very busy here at Frogs O' War over the last couple of weeks, and in my personal life as well. But, with a MWC Preview coming on Thursday morning, this will just be a quicky.

NOTES

- Jason Coats was diagnosed with a sprained knee ligament after collapsing during Sunday's regular season finale while rounding first base. Coats is out for the weekend, if not longer. He will be reevaluated after this weekend.

- Relly Mercurio joined the San Angelo Colts, an Independent League team, for the start of the 2012 season.

- Here is a great article for you about Scott Atchison and how he approaches the game of baseball.

- Thursday will be our MWC preview... Look out for this, my post season outlook will follow the tournament.
