It's Brandon's style this season....wreckless base-running.

Brandon's hitting .385 in June. Unreal.

Pretty funny, showing off his new car to his mom and he get pulled over. Odd that they took him in for just reckless driving, especially if he wasn't be confrontational about it, which it sounds like he was very well behaved during the whole event (aside from doing 70 in a 35 zone).

$25 bond? Why bother taking him into the station in the first place?

Who hasn't driven 72 in a 35 mph zone? :D

I know. What is this? 1914? A $25 bond?

Going 72 on Dixie Highway in Park Hills? Must've been pulling that going up the hill between the two high schools. There's no other stretch of road down there I can even fathom going that fast on. Even still that's pretty crazy.

Though that photo could have been taken anywhere (as it looks like any old stadium parking lot), it reminds me of the Gateway Speedway in St. Louis. I see the cones out there and the same kind of rails that they had out there when I was test-driving a bunch of vehicles 3 years ago. I was testing All-Wheel drive vehicles from Volvo, Subaru, Toyota, Nissan, BMW and Honda. Unfortunately, we didn't get to test drive the best, the Audi in that picture. Price was the obvious reason, but the main reason was that Audi is the only company that makes a better AWD system than Subaru. I've still never driven one of those Audi's....hopefully, someday.

I would have a ton of respect for Dusty and Walt if they pulled Brandon aside and said you know what, you are going to sit tonight because that was a stupid thing to do, someone could have been hurt including yourself.

I wish someone would pull Dusty aside and tell him that playing Cairo and Cabrera on the same side at the same time while Mike Leake is pitching is a dumb thing to do. Someone could get hurt.

Or they could just leave this non-issue alone and instead, spend the time figuring out how to make this team better.
