Will be doing it this monday at the Tyler's in Apex, I know the bartender and most of the cook staff there so they'll make it for me to try out. So be on the lookout for reports of a guy in his early 30s suffering from a heart attack in Apex.
On another note, I know it's 2 games and all, but damn I like how the Pirates staff is looking so far.
Bedard had a great first outing, should be a major inning eater if he can stay healthy and will give the Bucos a chance to win more often then not.
Karstens yesterday looked like he did last year, it's a good thing.
McDonald's been decent the past couple years, good #4 guy.
Correia won't kill the team as a #5, and I honestly still think Lincoln could be a good pitcher here eventually, whether he's used mostly in the pen or as the #5.
And let's not forget that they have a couple guys that should be top half of the rotation pretty easily in Burnett and Morton that are on the DL right now. Both of them look like they should be back in the thick of things soon.
Yep, I still believe in >.500 ball in Pittsburgh.
And the Orioles are 3-0!!11!! Fitting that those two are both off to good starts, as they have a lot of postseason history back when I was younger.
I think MLS would be a pretty great fit for Raleigh. I've never really had much interest in MLS in the past, but last year I went to a Red Bulls game and I have to admit it was a great time. Went to opening day this season and planning on hitting quite a few more. I still think their format and attempts to American-ize the sport rather than sticking with what every other league on the planet has done is irritating.
Bulls are off to a nice little start posting a 3-1 record after their opening series with the Gwinnett Braves. Now the Fort Mill...err...Charlotte Knights come to town bringing two former Bulls with them - former IL MVP Dan Johnson and the Venezuelan Chad LaRose, Rey Olmedo.
I agree that the Do. Not. Want. response seems odd. One of the attractions of MLS is pointed out by Luke: it doesn't overlap with the current sports, so it shouldn't be competing with the NHL or college sports. And if the person putting up the money wanted to be a minority Canes owner, they would be at this point.
I think it makes perfect sense in theory, but the practical issues (bigger stadium than WakeMed, owner) are major hurdles that I don't see navigated in the near future.
I'll take an MLS franchise. It would grow the area in a good way and bring more business. I would enjoy going to the games in the offseason and it would be a nice change of pace. Now what would really be amazing is to have an MLB franchise, but that was shot down when the Marlins moved to Miami. Any addition of a pro team is great for the area.
