    Another season where the most interesting time to watch is probably March until they send Bryant, Baez, Almora, Soler, Edwards and others back to the minors.

    Rwb, that's a blast from 2007. God, I can't wait for this team to get good again. We'll resurrect all the old timers to mix with the current posters. We suck yet we carry the load in terms of activity for PSD forums. It's gonna be popping in here when we finally get our **** together

    Sadly I got old. Full time work mixed with buying a new house and a team that was difficult to watch as consistently as before equals less time discussing whether Luis Valbuena or Donnie Murphy deserves more time. Or who should get more time, Junior Lake or Ryan Sweeney? Like really? Is it even a discussion, put me out there instead, I'll do it for a lot cheaper and still give you a lot of long-term openings.

    Hard to watch, but I still have to take the first two weeks of the season off work to enjoy the start of it all.

    Crazy if remember this correctly, but was that because we already had northsider and it was sort of an initiation? You used to be NorthSider10 or something, with alternating capitals? I think that's right but I could be way off.

    Good to see ya, rwb
