Up next at Notes is a Kannapolis Intimidators team preview.  Cheers

        1. That’s true but Benintendi got a quick cup of coffee in Greenville the year he was drafted and started his 1st full year in Salem. I think if Lowell wasn’t in the playoffs Dalbec would have done that too. I could be wrong I think it’s just as likely that Chavis is back in Greenville as Dalbec is assigned here.
