Strawberry In Trouble Again

Filing a false police report. Not Good. Strawberry charged with filing false police report

Looper’s Blown Season

I am so inseced by the news about Braden Looper‘s shoulder that I don’t even know where to begin. Looper was hurt even before the season began. He was told he needed surgery that would cause him to miss the early part of the season. The other option was to play through it because the […]

Most of it criticizes management for not making the call especially now that AAA Norfolk’s season is officially over. I, on the other hand, agree with the decision to not call him […]
