Well, there's an old saying. Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me for 15 fucking years in a row, shame on me.
School is back in session this week; attendance always drops for that first week as parents are getting back into the routine. I wish attendance were higher, but I think it will naturally pick up in the next few weeks anyways. Remember, this is a stadium that sold out (or close to it) for years and years in a row, even as the blO's started sucking in the late 90s.
Anyone else getting as excited as me to see Dylan Bundy? I think they're going to call him up.
But I'm confused about the playoff roster rule. (Playoffs?) I know there's an August 31 deadline to be on the 25-man roster, so it stands to reason we'd see him by Friday. But there's also a DL "loophole." At first, I understood it to mean that if a player went on the DL (I think it has to be the 60-day DL?) after August 31, you could replace him. But I read something on the internets (you know where that gets you) that suggested perhaps any DLed player could be replaced regardless of when they went on the DL; e.g. no matter who's keeping Tsuyoshi Wada's seat warm, as long as Bundy took "that spot" on the roster, he'd be eligible.
Anyone know more about this?
