Break time's over

The boys are back in town and stuff. Lots of reunions: Smith-McLean-Iggulden back together, Joensuu-Walter-Colliton (he’s ready to go). Mannino is up, but Len DiCostanzo wasn’t here, either. It’s not inconceivable that Mannino could be back here for Hartford and gone again for Portland; that kind of thing happened before the break. But we’ll see.

James Sixsmith was sent back to Utah after practice.
