The Lehigh Valley IronPigs are settling into the area and preparing for their season opener Thursday. At media day they talked like a team ready to make a run at a playoff spot.

It's almost time for the IronPigs to begin their regular season. That happens on Thursday on the road in Pawtucket. Prior to that, they'll be busy. They arrived in the Lehigh Valley this weekend and now they have media day, an exhibition game in Reading, and then the trip to Rhode Island to start the season. The IronPigs feature a lot of familiar faces to start this year, guys that have been in the Lehigh Valley in years past. Guys like Leandro Castro, Steve Susdorf, Andres Blanco, and Cameron Rupp. They also have some new faces like Maikel Franco who fans are excited to see. With that combo the players think they'll be very competitive all season.
