Dave Johnson, patriarch of the Brooklyn Ramblers--east coast faction of the MBC-- sent us this link proving that New York really is the city of dreams. While we Mission ballers are content to accept the occasional bedraggled orphan who wanders in from the woods of Golden Gate Park, the Ramblers are drafting former All Stars. Cliff Floyd, a 13 year pro, played last week with the Ramblers, which you can read about here:
By all accounts, Mr. Floyd is a class act, and displays all aspects of the MBC ethos. So if he is any example of the majority of players in the MLB, and follow my logic here, major leaguers are good players, and major leaguers are just like us, ergo, we are all good enough to be major leaguers. It's so simple!
So, shine up those shoes boys, I am sure that we are all getting the call soon up to the bigs.
In all honesty, this is a pretty awesome story, and I think our only logical response is to appeal to Willie Mays to come and play with us. Anyone know him?
I am also still holding out hope for a East/West game, maybe we can meet in the middle? According to a website I just found, that would put the game on East State Farm Road, North Platte, NE 69101.
Hmmm, we should probably discuss this a bit more.
Don't look back.
