We would go see Atlanta, but the jerks built the new stadium even further away and still off the train line.

LLWS, the team from Greenville, NC has played 2 games.

One guy threw a no-hitter in the LLWS.  Pretty cool, right?

Yeah, the kid 2 days earlier on his team threw a perfect game.

They've played 2 games and haven't been scored on and haven't allowed a runner past 2nd base.

Watching the pregame for tonight's LLWS game. The outfielders from Greenville have made 2 plays in 2 games. They've struck out 17 over 2 7-inning games. Just unreal hire dominant these kids are

I just heard a crazy Cleveland Indians stat - during their 20-game win streak, they've hit more home runs than their pitching staff has allowed earned runs.

They'll probably get bounced in the first round of the playoffs that they play in.

I'd be nervous if I were them of peeking too early.  The playoffs is a bad time to go on a losing streak.
