But it was a close 28 games! Seriously, excellent preview. You're too kind. Way, way, way kinder than I ever was to Des Moine...

2045 Yellow Springs Preview

Sorry to be dense but do these go in the media guide or these are in addition to the media guide previews?

Re: 2045 Preview Sign-ups!

Since my annual preview of Des Moines is off the table, The Black Sox will send a crack team of scouts to assess Yellow Springs. Or at least a hung-over intern ... Whoops my bad.
