Wholeheartedly agree. I don’t want a guy coming in from the bullpen and walking folks. Look how ‘exciting’ Hanrahan made it yesterday.

His same is Ryan Adams he is 4 years old. He is some the lucky charm that helped the hillcats win the championship. It started with a simple fist bump from matt hague. They beat the blue rocks in game 5 to advance to the championship game with salem. The next night Matt Hague again fist bumped Ryan (my son) and then the coachs and a few other players that matt hague told to fist bump for luck. Then they won the first game. The second game matt hague started it again and following the rest of the team and coachs. The won the second game. Needless to say we went to salem and repeated the fist bump through out the team and we won the 2009 carolina league championship. Thanks to the team and a few lucky fist bumps from Ryan Adams!!!!!

I was near the dad when he was saying something probably was along these lines, but I didn't catch the whole thing.
