There was the Jays/Brewers and a decade later the Mariners came up and played too. I remember Griffey and Buhner complaining about the stadium. Yeah I went to the Jays there as a kid and it was terrible. Great foresight on that stadium. It was similar to the Metrodome and Kingdome and those dumps were already outdated when they built BC Place. They should have never put a dime into it and just demolished it.
I don't think I was living in Canada for the Mariner games.

Canadians were the Brewers AAA affiliate in those days. There was some great ball played at Nat Bailey but the place killed power stats and inflated pitching stats. Heard that some of the prospects weren't too happy with the diamond at Little Mtn and what it did to their numbers. Was a great place to watch ball though.

Nine, nine, nine.

Nine innings, nine beers, nine dogs.
It’s still a good time to watch a game at the Nat. Yeah the caliber isn’t quite like it was when they had AAA here but there are some decent kids and it’s a nice minor league park. I think they sold out every game this year. The owners are really doing a good job.

Watched Jim Abbot on a conditioning stint in 96. Some asshole bunted on him and he threw the guy out on a nice play. Next batter Abbot damn near parked it in his ear.

Just read up on it and it look like you're right UDL. Players need to be signed up on trade deadline day to be eligible for the playoffs.

I would still sign him, doubt we will make the playoffs anyway but if we do, well, oh well. Could we send him to Utica and play in their playoff run then?

No, I think there's a similar rule for AHL playoff eligibility. I think it used to also be NHL Trade Deadline Day but may be different now; in any case, he won't be signed in time. He'll get signed regardless though; will be nice way to see some excitement at the end of a losing season.

True that.

Hey one thing though...here we are, mired in the middle of a losing season and i cant help but be stoked as fuck for games. Love watching the kids develop...the talent we are rocking these days makes the future bright and the present record almost...inconsequential

I know eh! It's sure is a pleasure watching the beginnings. Kind of like Sedins' early days. Glimpses of what's to come (yeah, it's gonna get even better!).

So our Core: Horvat, Boeser, Pettersson, Shotgun, Quinn (yeah, he's already pencilled in).

Who's next to join? Hutton, Demko, 2019 1st, Dahlen?
