The Modesto A's have extended an invitation to Governor Gray Davis and all 135 California Recall candidates to throw out a ceremonial first pitch at the team's Fan Appreciation Night game on Saturday, August 23.
"We're not a political organization. We're a community organization," said A's general manager Greg Coleman. "Our goal is to see who truly values the voters in our community. Those that want to make a lasting impression will accept the invitation."
Braving the horror show that is Comicon. We're not set up, but we'll be around all weekend.
I don't think Benson is going to have an ace season. I could see maybe 12-14 wins with an ERA between 3.50 and 4.00 as the best case scenario. The ship has sailed on him being an ace. Either way, I love this move for the O's.
