  1. Matt Moore to the Rangers for two pitching prospects.
  2. The Mudcat franchise was purchased by the Brewers a month or so back. They are nice looking hats and unis. Over the years I have accumulated several. One of the top selling logos year after year.
  3. Trammell and Morris made the HOF!

    Can’t argue with that deal! I enjoyed the park a lot. I assume you know the story of how the team ended up in Connecticut?
  4. Trammell and Morris made the HOF!

    Myself and a friend were so fortunate to have attended a game in Oneonta back when they were a Tigers affiliate. It was 10-12 years ago. Alcohol sales at the park were prohibited. However, they would allow folks to leave the park durung the and come back with a ticket or hand stamp, forgot which. When my friend and I learned this at initial ticket purchase we drove to a nearby store and grabbed a 12 pack of Blue Moon. Upon returning to the park, every couple innings or so we’d go out to the car and have a couple of brews before returning to our seats in the park. I miss Oneonta.
  5. Rule 5 Draft

    Trying to find the JD clone here.
  6. Kinsler to Angels for 2 Prospects

    FYI off Rotowire: Montgomery worked his way up to Double-A Mobile last season after starting the season with Low-A Burlington, and he wound up slashing .271/.358/.413 with eight homers and 15 stolen bases across all three levels. The 23-year-old is a well-regarded defender who can play all three outfield positions. He's relatively fast and has above average on-base skills, though his overall hit tool isn't anything overly impressive. He'll likely open the 2018 campaign at Double-A.

    This is me too. I believe Lou should be in before Morris, period. However, in that Morris goes in as a Tiger, I’m happy to see him get in.
  8. Because I recognize the futility in these two organizations you imply I am a bigot! Where the **** is that coming from? Tampa Bay has the most pathetic attendance and is no more than a farm team for the rest of the league. Miami builds a new ballpark and nobody cares. New ownership, to their credit, is trying to clean up the mess they inherited. So do me the favor and tell me how my comment has anything to do with bigotry, provided I am understanding what you appear to be implying.
  9. Both teams in Florida are bad jokes. Maybe Miami’s new ownership can change things but I’ll have to see it to believe it. Tampa Bay speaks for itself.
  10. Trammell and Morris made the HOF!

    You are absolutely correct. As Jim would say, “Nice area.”
  11. Trammell and Morris made the HOF!

    Isn’t this the same organization that fired Ernie Harwell and waited until after Sparky passed to give him his due?
  12. Trammell and Morris made the HOF!

    Morris has contiued to be visible among the MLB fraternity over the years. Lou, not so much. I wonder if that helped him at all at this point.

    Been to Cooperstown twice. Two breweries very close by, Old Slugger and Ommegang. Visited both. Beautiful town and area.
  14. Trammell and Morris made the HOF!

    Thanks for the feedback. I would be on cloud 99 if I could be in Cooperstown with these guys going in. Sparky would be so proud of this.
