There are Red Sox games at Camden Yard the weekends of 4/22-4/23, and 6/3-6/4. Any Monsters up for a road trip? Off? Ohio? Anyone?

Remy is fighting cancer again

Says he will do all the ST games. Cancer sucks, but he's in good hands and probably isn't kicking the bucket anytime soon.

Yea I'd definitely be up for a road trip to Camden. We haven't done one in years. Count me in for either weekend!

I'm with Off in thinking June sounds like the better weekend. I'm going to move this discussion to the Eliot for privacy reasons (discussions there, unlike here, aren't visible to non-members).

I can't find where I saw it but there was an interesting quote from Xander (Not exact wording but close):

"Benintendi is a better player than I was at the same age and I think he will end up being a better player than me."

Benintendi had better keep his head on straight with all the praise and projections, but this comment makes me want to say to Xander - are you really going to let that happen? :weg:
