1) I missed a pretty interesting ballgame yesterday, and
2) I overslept the bus/train combo I needed to catch to get to Fraser today.
As much as that sucks, I guess I'll use the opportunity to post the previously promised round of Who's Now.

1. Miles Wolff vs. 16 Jarrett Stawarz
1. Miles Wolff
Pro: He's' the boss. He runs this shit, yo. He's also been around forever, has been named one of baseball's most influential people, and operates two pretty successful leagues.
Con: Uncle Miles is a cheatin' S.O.B. who killed the lights against the Spirit in '04 and brings in cheap-shot artists like the one who broke Davilla's arm in the playoffs.
16. Jarrett Stawarz
Pro: Spirit PWNED him many times
Con: He's not good at all; he's on New Haven
8. Chris Farley vs. 9. R.C. Reutmann
8. Chris Farley
Pro: Awesome pitcher; has post-CanAm League success in single-A
Con: No longer in the Can-Am League; he's now in the
9. R.C. Reutmann
Pro: Operates the Worcester Tornadoes, a successful team in this league. Probably has lots o' bling bling.
Con: WAHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!! THE SPIRIT ARE MEAN!!!! WAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH I SHOULD HAVE A TALK WITH THE LEAGUE!!!! WAHHHHHHH!!!! I'M A SANCTIMONIOUS ASS!!!! WAHHH
4. Rich "El Guapo" Garces vs. 13. Joey "See-yak" Siak
4. El Guapo
Pro: One of the most beloved Red Sox of the 90s, Draws lots of attention and brings crowds wherever he goes
Con: Fat MLB reject who would eat all of the food at a party
13. Joey Siak
Pro: He's a sneaky-good pitcher and a good guy. And based on what my girlfriend told me, the ladies love him too. (ladies, is this true? bah, I don't think there are many female readers of this blog anyway)
Con: He's underrated, which is a good thing generally, but maybe not when you are voting on someone's oh-so-intangible NOW-ness.
5. Ken Ray vs. 12. John Kelly
5. Ken Ray
Pro: MLBer. Very notable. One of the best pitchers in CanAm history. A really interesting character.
Con: His comments about Fraser did not endear him to Spirit fans or the organization. Also, he's definitely history at this point.
12. John Kelly
Pro: Easily the best pitcher in Spirit history and a seemingly awesome guy.
Con: Never could quite cut it at the next level.
OK... vote or die.
