A Reason To Watch(BTDB standings) and My Experience With Michael Bowden
Posted 22 April 2012 - 10:05 AM
BTDB DIVISION W L GB
Boston Red Sox 4 10 -
Chicago Cubs 4 11 1/2
Well, well, well...look at that...as bad as we are(and we are bad) we are in the thick of the BTDB race...take that Lucky Lucchino, and the king of all douche-iness Bobby Valentine! It would be pretty damn funny if the Cubs finish better then them...you have to look for small joys in life.
*** On a small footnote, as I have stated before, I devout most of my March, April, and May to attempting to coach high school baseball.(hence my sporadic BN appearances) Back in 2005, we faced one Michael Bowden...who proceeded to strike out 17 of the 21 guys he faced. Michael is a great kid, and there was much thought that when he came up, if he was with a different organization he would have been a 3rd or 4th starter very early on. I know it is only High School, but over the last 7 years our team faced Casey Crosby(ranked in Detroits top ten) and Michael Folteneywicz( ranked in Houstons top ten). These guys threw harder than Bowden, but Bowden was light years ahead in command and polish. I think we should be excited about a potential huge upside...and I hope they convert him back to a starter.
