Major interview with Backman/Shoppe's Larry Q:

What are your expectations for your team at the Major World Series?
I honestly feel this years brackets have a lot of games that will be hard to call.  Parity is upon us in the Conference.  If our lefthanders play well at Disney then I feel we are capable of playing with anyone.

What players will be missing or injured for the Major World Series and how will that affect your lineup and defense?
We went into the Conference Championship with Lopez nursing a groin pull and McCollum a Hamstring.  We seemed to get out of there with either of them doing any additional damage but not before Dave Kessler rolled an ankle.  With that said I think Sam and Brett will be fine and we are keeping our fingers crossed on Kessler.

Who is your star defensive player that fans should watch and why?
I think it can be entertaining to watch Kyle Cowart patrol centerfield.

What players are key to your teams offensive and defensive success at the Major World Series?
If the bottom of our order can get it done like we did earlier In the year it will be a huge boost to our run production.

What other (if any) tournaments does your team have left to play in 2014?
This will be our last event of the year.
