    That stinks....
    The lowest acceptable payroll amount for ownership to show they are not greedy pigs is 15 million more than they are currently paying. No matter what that currently is.

    I'm ok with the Padres coming to Amarillo. They have history here and the ballpark is going to be nice. It's in the downtown area which is undergoing a revitalization. Lot's of places to eat, a few hotels. More going up, and stores are trickling in too. I'm hoping to get on as a camera operator for home games for foxsports SW. Easy way to make some extra money.

    I've been contemplating a summer road trip out to Chattanooga for a few years, through the Shenandoah. There's some very cool biking along the way. This would move it up the priority list.

    Robert Stephenson should be cut. That's just unconscious knowledge.

    There's a pretty nice acquarium almost directly next to the stadium, too, if you're into that kind of thing.

    Can't wait for the creepy Lookouts mascot to be back for the Reds.

    I mean, everything is better than the new Flyers mascot, Gritty, right?

    Gritty looks like he wants to eat people, the lookout is peering into windows late at night.

    Its official, Chattanooga and the Reds reunited again.

    Kind of bummed I never made it to Pensacola while the Reds were there, those pictures of the stadium always looked great.

    But I cant say I could imagine a scenario for that which wasnt simply flying to Pensacola to see a game. The odds of me coincidentally being in the Chattanooga area and able to catch a game are probably higher.
    I dont care, Votto said of passing his friend and former teammate. Hes in the past. Bye-bye, Jay.

    I assume that's their stadium. Looks like 1/2 isn't there. Supposedly they are working on getting a new one.

    You don't like the beach? I was on vacation in Destin and went to a Wahoos game.

    When I'm visiting Florida and hitting up the beach there it's almost certainly because I'm seeing my parents down in Palm Beach, not exactly a stone's toss from Pensacola.

    I would like to check out Destin at some point though.

    Gritty is the Phillie Phanatics drunk uncle who also smokes crack. That deal is horrible.
