    Would like to see a Taillon/Harper matchup.
    Harper shows up in West Virginia tonight, too bad Taillon is not at WV yet, and Taillon won’t see Harper until July and that will be in Hagerstown.

      I just posted a new article about Taillon. He IS in West Virginia, and I think his debut could be on Wednesday.
