Past, Present, and Future look'in Good!

Thought I’d break out the ole’ crystal ball and maybe take a peek at the 2008 Railroader future. If you remember from last year, this little jewel I found at a yard sale was pretty darn good at show possible rough spots in the track ahead.

The guys have look pretty good through the first 3 games, all against the Birds who seemed to get their act together somewhat at the end. Good for them, and I wish them the best as they take off for the dog bound to face the Hounds, show ‘em you’ve found your rhythm, boys! But getting back to our Railroaders, I was impressed with their cool when falling behind for the first time in the season. They showed poise and confidence and backed it up with positive results from solid ball playing. You’ve overcome a couple of miscues and carried on in fine fashion.

Now the next test, the Oilers. Two years ago no team in the league could catch them in the pennant race all seaon. Last year they were a solid 3rd in the league finishing 6 behind us. This year they have taken 2 of 3 against the newly formed Bobcats. Looking at the stats and my crystal ball, I see a better Oilers team than last year and a managing team looking for move ahead of us to lead the pack. We have a 1 game lead now over them and the Pirates. Time to fire it Up! Let’s take these next 2 home games and then hit the tracks for Marion.


  1. Lovin the play by play on Teamline! Listening from the Detroit area. Getting all excited for my first experience at a Railroaders game next week!

    See ya soon!

  2. Your Teamline is the next best thing to being there at the field cheering on the team and seeing the action up close. I miss the games and the fans but I will definitely make the trip back this summer to watch Coach Estes "fire it up!" and lead the team to an awesome season... Go get 'em sweetheart! And Marlene.... Estes is taken, so don't even think about it! :)

    - St. Louis

    (My parents and I are now big fans of the broadcast, keep up the good work Dave)

  3. Teamline is definitely the way to go....I jus' hope the signal keeps reaching me sitting under this here bridge! *hiccup*
