    give him a 10 year 100 million deal before he becomes to expensive.

      Yeah, lock him up through his pre-arbitration teen years.

  • Ivan

    Hey Mike what is the open thread topic will be?

    • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

      No freaking idea. Got a suggestion?

      • Ivan

        Not alot is coming up, how about an open thread on Around the Majors or NFL Picks/predictions.

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=594331910 Jamal G.

        I’ll go with Ivan’s suggestion, a broad NFL thread.

    The controversy bothers Jericho, who says he misses pitching.
    “I feel sad,” he said. “I feel like it’s all my fault nobody could play.”
    Nice job, assholes.

    • http://www.riveraveblues.com Joseph P.

      Yeah. The story enrages me greatly.

      • Adam

        this whole sad tale is going to make the kid afraid to throw inside for the rest of his life.

        • Jack

          “I have never seen behavior of a parent like the behavior Jericho’s mother exhibited Wednesday night,” Noble said.

          What did you expect? If it was my kid, someone would have ended up with a broken jaw.

      • Dylan

        Me too.

  • Chris

    When the Yanks played the Twins, didn’t they say that there was a similar situation with either Mauer or Morneau?

    • a parody of bill

      Kay said that Mauer was pulled from tee-ball at age 3 for being too strong, or something like that.

  • Brian

    Maybe somebody is covertly trying to limit his innings. Tell that to a nine year-old. It’s a good move to shutdown the league.

  • Marc

    Sign him, DFA Traber, add him to 25 man roster and he can pitch relief by tomorrow evening against the Sox. Their scouts wouldn’t have had time to research him! Get it done Cash!

  • Old Ranger

    I am sorry to say I have heard of similar situations before. The first time I heard of the teams not keeping score in one of the leagues my grandson played in, I had a sh%$#@t fit! I had my son pull him and put him in an older league.
    The PC police are getting carried away…how the hell is any kid going to make it the real word. You guys all have jobs (or retired), isn’t competition in your job environment part of life?
    The kids are getting soft, bigger and faster, but mentally soft. In my book; “The soft and meek shall perish!” Harsh but true, that’s called life! And yes, I did walk 1-1/2 miles to school as a kid (most all of did in those days), but it was up hill only one way! Hay, you’ll think that diatribe was to much? If so, sorry ’bout that, but I feel better. 27/08??

    hey, they started scouting jackson at 12. Not that far off.

      Well now that post was pointless…..

    As a Connecticuttian, I am ashamed of this. I work in New Haven a lot, and I gotta say, there are much, much worse things this kid could be doing than throwing heat. Even at nine years old.

    Parents…the worst thing to happen to children’s sports.
