Lucky Fans

Siskiyou County is a great place to live. It's over six thousand square miles in size and holds fewer than fifty thousand people. That means hardly ever waiting in line, or short waits when there is a line. That was sure the case with The Trophy Tour on all three occasions. The first two were held in Mt. Shasta City Park and the latest was at the College of the Siskiyous in Weed. Most of the places on The Tour are larger cities and near metropolitan areas. We northstate fans are particularly fortunate. A gentleman by the name of Mike Rodriguez made this possible. He is the Parks Administrator for Mt. Shasta City, a Junior Giants supporter, and obviously a big fan. I'd like to say "Thanks, Mike!" on behalf of all the happy fans who live here. Here's are pictures from 2012 (top) and 2010 (below). I unfortunately did not get one this time. My bad. Next time, I suppose!

Trophy Man!

Vogie back?

Looking like he's coming back, yeah.

Then again, not that long ago, he looked like he was headed to the Astros.

But this is where he wants to be, so I can't imagine that he won't.

The nuez sez, "He's signed."

M.C. O'Connor said...

I'm happy.

M.C. O'Connor said...

John Bowker is back. And Brandon Hicks. Both signed to minor league deals.

The new Commish thinks it would be OK to eliminate defensive shifts.

God, what a dingus. We say goodbye to Seligula and we get this doofus? Yikes. You have a pitcher and a catcher and seven other guys. What are you going to do--draw lines? If a team wants to move their fielders they do so at their own risk. Batters will adjust and start to take advantage. Let the game ebb and flow and sort itself out. Sometimes it's a hitters world, sometimes a pitchers. It's all good, Rob. Now fuck off, go home, and play with your kids. Don't mess with the game.
