yeah, i guess this is maybe more directed at folks like me who follow loser teams. winter leagues give hope!

yeah, that's why i follow them too. "ooh look some no-name AA kid struck out 6 in venezuela the other day. wow we're on the right track."

West Oahu CaneFires
Waikiki BeachBoys
North Shore Honu (About the Team Name:
Sea turtles are the true ancients of the world, swimming in our oceans for over 200 million years. They grow up to 45 inches and weigh between 200-400 pounds.
etc etc)

if you can't get excited about a scorpions-desert dogs opening day matchup, i must question whether you truly love the game

(also glendale has some legit prospects)
