So I'm going to see the Riverhawks tonight... and it makes me feel good that even if wealthy bastards will kill this season, I can always watch minor league baseball.
I mean, it's that hometown feeling you get while watching a game that you paid $5 for. Hell... I can even say I watched a promising Dallas Cowboys QB play here five years ago... that, and stand by Mitch Robinson as he got hit in the shnoodies by a errant baseball. :>
And you get two for one. Saw a twi-night doubleheader in Frederick between the Keys and the Cannons on Saturday night for some double-barrel Carolina League action. Two seven-inning games of great ball and fewer Washington area yuppies who pay $35 to bullshit during the game(sorry about that rant but jesus I was sitting in box seats at an O's-Mariners day game a couple of weeks back and these four goofs in front of us were talking about and paying attention to anything but the game, even when Ichiro fouled off a long drive two feet over from them).
The Yanks do have a couple of very highly regarded catching prospects (baseballamerica.com) (Jesus Montero, J.R. Murphy, Austin Romine, and Gary Sanchez), so I'm unsure if I'd put the number at 100%, though it would seem to be a sensible consideration....
