ALEX BURNETT NEWS

Links of the Day 6/4/13

Good afternoon, dear friends. Pretty soon our weekdays are going to be crawling with kids out of school. Indiana is getting new helmets, and they are fairly terrible. Alex Burnett’s season could be described as an “Odyssey”. At least Jacksonville won’t be asking the state or city to overpay for a stadium, right? Right?

Miguel Gonzalez Heads to the DL

Too bad to see about this about Miguel Gonzalez; however, it is probably for the best at this point. It is early in the season and better to rest him now with the blister issue than later. Gonzalez being lost could be a minor blow to the team considering how well he pitched last season. I would not be too alarmed as the Orioles have depth right now in their system and are playing...

Last day of September. I’m already sick of Halloween decorations. Alex Burnett isn’t special. Strange to say, but I don’t know anyone who went to Minnesota Crookston.
