Like Barry Bonds, Baseball Widow hasn't retired; she's just not playing.

Opportunity Wasted

Last Friday, Baseball Widow and Hubby caught the home opener of Milwaukee AAA affiliate Nashville Sounds at the pitiable Greer Stadium. Seriously, Baseball Widow's high school's baseball team had a better stadium, and they played in the school's parking lot.

Baseball Widow was quick to notice the striking minor league umpires who were picketing the front gates. They were hard to miss with their "Minor League Umpires on Strike" signs. Baseball Widow was appalled--at the lack of creativity. How about "One Strike and MiLB is Out" or "No Strikes 'Cause We're Out"? What about "Minor League Umps Call Foul!"?

Ah, Baseball Widow has missed her calling as a Headline Copy Editor. . .

Any word on when construction begins on the new stadium?

The developers have to do one more public presentation early next month. At about that same time, they'll start marketing and pre-selling the residential units. I think they will try to break ground shortly thereafter with hopes to play in the stadium in 2008. It's gonna be cool; Baseball Widow and Hubby are seriously considering trying to get one of the condos.
