Nugget - that's the problem. Felipe had a wonderful spring. But since he isn't one to complain and whine - RA was the opening day SS. This after RA was CLEARLY the RUNNER-UP in the 2005 Race for SS.
So - here we go again. EdE goes nuts, but since he's not a veteran, he'll be shipped to Louisville and RA gets the nod, when clearly he's not the answer. He just has a really cool goatee and some pictures of DanO with a pony.
I also wouldn't compare BL to EdE. Two different work ethics and skills.
