    I thought he went to St. X, that's not parochial, stupid writers need to get their facts straight

    St. X isn't associated the St. Xavier parish in Cincinnati?
    Burn down the disco. Hang the blessed DJ. Because the music that he constantly plays, it says nothing to me about my life.

    No. It's a private school, unrelated to the church.

    edit: I should clarify, unrelated to that specific church. It is a Jesuit high school with a Catholic curriculum.
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    That's why I put the smiley face in, it's really minutea distinguishing between Private Catholic and Parochial schools. I wouldn't actually expect a writer from Florida to know.

    They can't even vote correctly.

    I'd love to see the Reds stay in Sarasota but really, why do they need a new stadium? Ed Smith stadium seems to seat about the same number as the one they're asking for. What more do they need out of a Spring Training stadium that'll host maybe 15 games a year for the big league club?

    The facility will include training facilities that are pretty standard for other clubs but the Reds are lacking.

    Also will house not one but two minor league clubs (Sarasota Reds and the GCL Reds) as well as the Reds Instructional League.

    Hardly in use for only "15 games a year". It'll be a year 'round facility.
