6 runs, our quota for the week

Colvin should be benched for jump starting our lame team

What's up with ARam, some one must have woken him up from his Rip Van Winkle snooze

[Profanity] he put a sweet swing on that homerun. Nothing big about that swing, but he's got a [profanity] of pop in it. He needs to play nearly everyday. He's given nobody any reason to bench him, and he's morel likely the future (as compared to any of the rest of our outfielders).

I don't know where you think you are, but censorship is kind of frowned upon.

I am trying to figure out what words fit in his brackets... is shitload one word?

Comment: Good, Better, Best
#1: Damn, Jesus, Sweet fucking christ
#2: Shitload, Assload, fuckload

Just try to come up with more appropriate curses than these - I dare you!

. . . I love you guys. *hugs*

Now that EXST is over what are the 18 who attend these games get to do with all the impending free time?

thanks Az Phil, I always enjoy your reports and insights.

Az phil-

What position would Morelli play?

Az phil-

What position would Morelli play?

==========================

JACOS: Jesus Morelli has played all three OF positions (but mostly RF) at EXST, and his best spot is definitely RF (he has a plus-arm with slightly above-average speed),

AZ PHIL THANKS!! Again, for another insightful season of EXST for our Young Cubs! Hopefully, a couple of these prospects will make a difference for the team down the road - after some of the management currently here is gone.

And, as you have seen, "You don't mess with 'The Jesus'."
