    Yeah, was much better when Ottawa had the relationship with the Expos.

    Likewise. If the Cannons were still here (they left in 2006), I'd be all over season tickets.

    I guess A-Rod played on the team on a rehab assignment at one point. Edgar Martinez, too. That would've been awesome to see live.

That's 5% better than super prospect Brett Honeywell's in the same league, and easily the best in the international League.
    This truly pleases me.

    There used to be a AAA team here though - the Cannons.
    What about the Dawgs??

    Been, but couldn't really care much less about that level.

    Clayton Keyes played for that team last year, though.

    I used to play WMBL. Okotoks has a beautiful stadium. Best in the league hands down. Lots of talent in the league too. Andrelton Simmons and Marco Gonzales are alumni.

    That's cool. You went pretty far with baseball.

    It is quite stunning, actually. Seaman Stadium is quite explosive - good, loud atmosphere.

    I wish I were 25 years younger and pitched to you, see where I stood. I faced the Butler's etc, and did well, or alright.

    (A couple moon shots) But, what can you do.

    P.S. They were my neighbours and said I was dumn, for quitting ball as an SP/1B.

    I was suspended from hockey through my draft years. (Was better on the ice, imo)

    I bailed, like a dummy.

    (Hahahah... my dreams haunt me)

    I know we've had forum/league meetups before at Jays games, though would be cool to have a meetup to set up a baseball game somewhere haha. Likely would be tough to schedule though would be cool someday.

    I'm getting interest from several different owners on Pineda and a few productive avenues are open to me for trade scenarios. I was way too busy today to really get back to anyone (and my inbox was full) so sorry about that. I should be more available to discuss trade scenarios this evening. If you like him, throw your hat in the ring. It doesn't look like the price will be anything too extravagant.

    A BJMB Sunday afternoon baseball game would be incredibly fun me thinks. I can throw a mean mid 60's fastball.

    Count me in if someone ever wants to organize it.
