No Time to Weep over UC Sweep

We are finally rid of the Greyhounds for the regular season, and should we meet up with them again in the playoffs it will be a whole new game. It is always a little bitter to lose to the dogs, but that’s behind us now. There is no time or reason for us to lick our wounds other than learning from our mistakes. With 19 games left, there is a lot of baseball yet to play and the outcome has not been determined so far. We’re currently in 2nd place and that’s better than 4 other teams in the league.

Next up over the coming week are 5 games with the Bulls in Sikeston and 2 with the Bobcats in Fulton. We are 8-2 combined so far against these two teams, 3-2 on the Bulls and 5-0 with the Cats. Let’s make the most of the next 8 days. We have a great opportunity to harden our position going into the final stretch. Let’s get the train back on the winning track and we’ll do just fine, trust me. I believe in the Railroaders’ ability to overcome the setbacks, and I believe our players’ talent and passion for the game can get us through. Let’s fired it up and roll down the tracks with a full head of stream!

  1. Here is a little history lesson "pig man"- add that 2-8 to an all time record of 16-43, and answer this- What Rivalry? Glad all of your fans could come down and buy tickets to witness the inevitable, yet again.

  3. Thanks for the history lesson, although I didn't really need it since I already knew what the Hounds' record was against us. Secondly, I don't remember mentioning anything about the "Rivalry" either, but as you have...I'm glad too that our fans were able to but a few tickets to support your cause. Obviously the Hounds' Fans are few and far between, so they need all the help they can get. Shame too, since they are a good team for sure. Ever wonder why so few fans support your team...?

  5. UC has the most obnoxious fans in the league. They are no class losers. Too bad they stink up the game. Redneck City all the way.

  7. Yeah, there was a lot of class shown by Fulton two years ago, when we rocked you in the playoffs with all three games in Fulton; and you might need to look in the mirror, our fans might be obnoxious, but you have the biggest cry-baby fans in the league year in and year out.
