You're right. It was in bad taste. My apologies.

We can't all be RBX. (90's rapper, found a way to get the line into a lot of his songs.)

"Aaron Hicks proves he's a AA baseball player" How so? That one needed a little flesh.

How long 'til Murphy gets bumped up to CR? Those numbers make me think E-Town isn't much of a challenge for him.

In that, given his recent good results, including last night, he now is matching his numbers from 2012 when he was last at New Britain. His numbers are virtually identical:

Haha, I know that awful feeling, Jeremy. It has happened to me lots of times, with a wide variety of things I have written.

Garver and Murphy are impressive. Murphy cannot stay in E-Town anymore, please!

I think it is good for Hicks to get back to that level and play well. He then gets his baseline reset and can move to AAA to build on it. And then . . . starting CF out of ST 2015!!!

Hicks is pretty good at AA. The higher levels... not so much.

I had a pretty long write-up on Murphy before the purge. He deserves to move up. But I've heard that E-town wants to make a championship push and there might not be any moves. I think Buxton might be the first domino there, although they could make do without getting a replacement for him. There's only 6ish weeks left in the minor league season, so the difference between finishing a year raking and confident instead of getting your feet wet and struggling might tip scales to staying put.

So I should assume the bit about Garver dropping bombs was a bit more colorful before the radio edit?

We were rocking the Euro tracks last night. Though I haven't had luck with that or the US version.

Yeah, but it wasn't a joke, it was a reference. Either way, I should have gone a different direction.
