    Henry was a decent college pitcher. Best of luck to him.

    Yeah, we go way back. Good family-his Dad never missed a game Mac coached at home or on the road up until just before he passed. Always wearing a big smile and wanted a hand shake.

    Phillip Abner and Colby Halter were named Cape Cod League All-Stars. Really good news on Abner who has a great arm but obviously struggled with command his first season on campus.

    To say Abner struggled with command is putting it mildly

    Nothing more lacking than mild salsa on a good taco.

    It was a weird joke. You said putting it mildly as if second guessing what sting had said about struggling with command. So the only thing I could think of was mild salsa and then I paired that with tacos and thought bad pitching is like mild salsa on a good taco. Personally I'd much rather have some good fresh medium to hot salsa on a good taco makes the two even better. Kind of like good command goes with good pitching. See what happens to me when @ocalaman isn't around to keep me straight.

    Was good vs Okla, but 3 of his last 4 outings would probably be considered unsuccessful

    Huevos rancheros on steamed smallish tortillas (corn or flour) and folded over. On larger tortillas and rolled it is a breakfast burrito.

    Axtually people argue about this.
