    Praying for North Carolina. Obviously cutting the series into a one-game affair was what had to be done, and actually, it gave us home field advantage, which we were not supposed to have (the series was going to be in a 2-3 format). Would have kind of preferred that games 2-5 be moved, but obviously, what's done is done, and at least we won! Also, it was the Buies Creek Astros' final game, as they move to Fayetteville next season. And congratulations to Morgan Ensberg, an old favorite of mine, for managing the Creek 'Stros to a title! #WinnersWin

    If only Oakland hadn't got good a season or two early, we would probably have gotten to give Tucker more time to adjust in the majors this season.

    Did you upload that to somewhere else or did you find an embed link I missed? For future reference.

    I went to the underlying video URL on the page and downloaded the video, then uploaded it to my Google drive.

    Could be an easier way, but it was the way I knew.

    Woo hoo!!!! Hopefully Springer is okay. Also, do we need to make a corresponding move on the 40-man, or is someone (Martes? Gustave?) being moved to the 60-day DL?

    Fresno ends the season meekly with a 5-0 4-hit loss (Tucker had a double) a day after losing 2-1 on a walk-off squeeze bunt in the 11th inning, the 1 run in that game came from a Tucker HR.

    Well I wonder If Tucker will get called up now? It’ll be good to see him take another crack at ML pitching.

    YYYYAAAAAASSSSS! Texas here we come! For some reason I was kind of worried that they'd renew it. Good memories, but I like Texas (the state, not the AAAA team, obviously) way better, and it makes far more sense logistically.

    I’m fine with either decision, but I thought having a west coast team was good for them because they play Seattle, Oakland, and Los Angeles so if they need to call someone up quickly, they could.
