Wow, glad there weren't enough idiots like Mellonhead around to tell guys such as Albert Pujols and Tim Lincecum to get a REAL job. You gotta start somewhere. Follow your dreams. You would regret never taking the chance. Good luck to you David.

I think theres a difference for guys that were selected in the mlb draft like Pujols and Lincecum vs a kid at CR that has bounced around the lowest level of Independent baseball leagues. Look at his stikeout to IP ratio....34 IP and 20 k's. Unless he's throwing a nasty knuckleball, it aint going to happen. Sorry, but it's not so why prelong it. You got a taste of it but now it's time to move on.

I just love it when someone on the outside trys to judge people without knowing them. If someone cant be happy for someone else its because there so unhappy with themselves they try to put other people down to there level. Have a nice life Mellon

Knowing David he always gets what he wants. He went through a lot of bullshit when he came back to a fiance that just wanted to mess around instead of being a happy family. After a year of trying to get back on his feet without any family to support him in Eureka its hard to stay motivated and he did. David is a great guy and not to take advantage of playing in Europe all expenses paid would be ridicules. From what I here already has jobs lined up for when he gets back. So Mellonhead thanks for being so concerned. But its under control.
