baseball: norfolk tides @ durham bulls

baseball: norfolk tides @ durham bulls, originally uploaded by minervacat. Thirty three. The depressing thing about watching the Tides, besides them getting absolutely spanked by the Bulls, is knowing that these are the guys who still aren’t good enough to play on the really, really terrible Orioles. Sigh. My ball club, ladies and gentleman. We’re…

baseball: gwinnett braves @ durham bulls, july ’10

baseball: gwinnett braves @ durham bulls, july ’10, originally uploaded by minervacat. Thirty two. I think seeing the Gwinnett Braves play would be more interesting if I cared more about their big club and knew more about their farm system. But I don’t. Apparently this kid, Jordan Schafer, is a big deal. He appears to…

baseball: louisville bats (reds) @ durham bulls (rays)

baseball: louisville bats (reds) @ durham bulls (rays), originally uploaded by minervacat. Thirty one. I am terribly fond of the Durham Bulls; it pleases me to see so many guys who came through Durham doing so well in Tampa Bay right now. (Except for Matt Joyce, who is hitting .206. But I still love him.)…

baseball: gwinnett braves @ durhamย bulls

baseball: gwinnett braves @ durham bulls, originally uploaded by minervacat. Thirty. Rain delay and all — I was given a damn good ticket and I used it to take a lot of clooooose up photos.

baseball: west tenn diamond jaxx @ carolina mudcats

baseball: west tenn diamond jaxx @ carolina mudcats, originally uploaded by minervacat. Twenty eight. I wrote and saved and didn’t post, literally, nine or ten drafts of this. Angry letters to Mariners fans who keep getting the facts wrong. Long love letters to college baseball that no one else cares about. But in the end….

baseball: jacksonville suns @ carolina mudcats

Twenty four. Proof that I cannot work the internets correctly: I bought tickets to last night’s Mudcats game, cheerfully thinking that they were to a Mudcats game against the West Tennessee Diamond Jaxx — not, you know, the Jacksonville Suns, who take the obvious abbreviation JAX on the Southern League schedules. Luckily the Diamond Jaxx…

baseball: swb yankees @ durham bulls

baseball: swb yankees @ durham bulls, originally uploaded by minervacat. Twenty two. North Carolina has ten minor league teams (if you count the Charlotte Knights, who technically represent Charlotte but play in South Carolina), which is the fourth most in the nation. (Florida at 13, California at 12, and New York at 11 come out…

baseball: pawsox @ bulls

baseball: pawsox @ bulls, originally uploaded by minervacat. Today I would sell a cat in exchange for a perfectly sunny — 1/100, f22 — perfectly breezy May afternoon. Some baseball and some beer would also not go amiss.

baseball: pawtucket red sox @ durham bulls

baseball: pawtucket red sox @ durham bulls, originally uploaded by minervacat. I love the Carolina baseball team a whole damn lot, but not enough to sit in the rain on a Monday to watch Matt Harvey1 pitch in an intrasquad scrimmage, so instead, have a stray shot from the Bulls/Pawsox series this summer. That starting…
