Probably getting some heat from the affiliate about putting such a dog**** team out there.
Heath starts for Charlotte - that's what that organization is selling to its fans.

The Sox have been drafting better in the past couple of years. Charlotte will ultimately be a beneficiary of that.

Huge acquisition: we needed a QB to get the ball to Jared Mitchell.

A ballpark that is selling out almost every game too. The Knights are doing just fine financially. The injuries to the Sox caused us to take a lot of their quality players too. Guys like Petricka, Rienzo, Scott Carroll, Javy Guerra, etc. would likely still be in Charlotte if we were 100% healthy.

From wikipedia (because I know you were all wondering...)

Tuiasosopo is the brother of Marques and Zach, and the son of Manu Tuiasosopo. His father and brothers played football in college, with Manu attending UCLA and his two older brothers attending the University of Washington.


Tuiasosopo's brother-in-law is Micah Owings.[14] He is a cousin of Ronaiah Tuiasosopo, perpetrator of the Manti Te'o girlfriend hoax.
