“The reality is we weren’t going to play more than 60 games, no matter how the negotiation with the players went, or any other factor,"
That comment trumps the other comments. He’s saying that “regardless of the negotiations”
Well then, why have negotiations? Why not say, “we’re only gonna have 60 games and we’re going to start in July” Why waste so much time on posturing that, according to Manfred himself, was useless?
That’s why I asked the lawyers in the crowd For their thoughts. Spirit of 66 is not a lawyer, but his comment was very cogent
Yes... probably mostly bad in Florida. Plus they tend to want pimento and other stuff in the south. I was in Georgia for a while and a pretty high profile place with several locations called Ray’s had a pretty good quality cake, but it had chopped pepper in it and served it with a garlic aioli. They had Old Bay in the kitchen so you could request it. But I don’t believe it was in their recipe. If you ever get through Atlanta look them up!
Boarman's Market in Highland often has some good ones in their butcher/seafood section. Great place, this old fashioned farmers market / grocer with hand painted signs in an area of HoCo that was once all farms but is now full of neighborhoods with million dollar houses. But Boarman's hasn't changed.
I'll swing by there on a Friday onmy way to Blacksburg for a football weekend and pick up a pound of their fresh made daily breakfast sausage for us to have at our tailgate the next day. Got a dozen crabcakes there once and we grilled them at our tailgate the next day and they were fantastic.
I ordered crab cakes in Columbus Ohio once and I can’t recommend any more highly to never do that. They were about the size of a quarter and we’re pretty inedible.
I had some good crab cakes at Jordan Pond House in Acadia National Park in Maine a few times.
It is exactly the same as the minor leagues. Think of the 30 to 34 guys not on the MLB 26-28-30 man roster as being Norfolk.
A guy on the 40 who doesn't make the team has to be optioned. Promote a non 40 man roster guy from the 60 to the ML roster and you have to make room on the 40 man. It's exactly the same as the minors. A guy who goes down has to stay down for 10 days, etc.
But don't call it the taxi squad because that term is used for the 3 guys you are allowed to bring on a road trip just in case you have an injury and travel is difficult to get a replacement. Those are 3 guys from the 60, they make the trip. At least one must be a C. But that's all, they aren't even announced. If an injury does occur and one gets activates, all the above rules apply.
