View Full Version : Anyone at Yuma Game?

So did anyone attend the Yuma doubleheader against Calgary last night? Read the stories and it appears that not only did the senior-citizen representatives on the Scorpions (aka, the Cansecos) suffer injuries, but that the Scorps may not have enough money to pay for Jose's MRI! (his words, not mine!). So file this season-opener under the heading, "GBL Clusterf**k is now the NAL's Problem"
Would love to know the attendance figures, but alas, they aren't posted on the box score so it appears that once again, the fine, integrity-filled, transparent business practices will continue this year.

Looking at the Yuma paper's coverage, one of the two pictures shows the entire right field line's seating area from the dugout on down. I think there's one person right at the end of the dugout, the rest of the seating is empty.

The Yuma Sun sports editor's column on the Cansecos said "the crowd was the biggest I can remember in a long time". And it was a Tuesday.

"Jose Canseco, a former major league Most Valuable Player, hyperextended his bicep trying to swing. After receiving an MRI on Wednesday, Jose Canseco and the team decided it would be best if he rested the injury for a few days."

Sweet, they must have sold enough beer on "Thirsty Thursday" to pay for it!
