It's mid summer- and a rookie, midwestern kid call up has had a great first week- I'm just going to enjoy that for what it is- he'll have to adjust as the pichers adjust to him, etc.- but for now- it's a highlight of a horrible season. I remember a kid named Ricky Seilheimer being called up- having a few good games- then flaming out- but it's always fun to watch while it lasts.

A few years ago- I saw Lucas Harell win an emergency start- 5 inning win, by the skin of his teeth (dodged a grand slam by about 2 feet). Just seeing a kid "beeming" from his his first major league win on a warm summer night- that's why I love baseball- and it's my favorite sport by far-
