Opening Night Matchup, Belgian Roster Announced

The first games of the 2012 season have been scheduled, and poetically they are scheduled for Opening Night, April 27th. In what is shaping up as a tradition for us, the Commandos will host the event under the city lights at Lafayette Park in Detroit. Their opponents will be the Flying Squirrels, who could not resist inviting themselves up for this year's kickoff (should I say "first pitch"?) event. Last time the teams played at Lafayette Park they split 1-1 with five runs winning both games. It should be a good test for the new lineups; speaking of which, now we can get to talking about who will be the opening day starters!

Also making news here at the end of the fiscal fourth quarter is the release of the new Belgian Wiffles roster. David Buhr has brought in four rookies for the 2012 campaign, three of whom he thinks could pan out as good pitchers. "I don't know how good any of them will be," David admitted in a text before confidently adding, "what I do know is that we're going to have some serious speed on the basepaths." So, it sounds like David has remodeled his lineup to take advantage of our expanded tag-up rule for next season. WSEM may have another team that can keep defenses on their toes and drive them crazy the way the DeLoppes and Warriors did last season.

In case you have not seen it on the news, the investigation into the plot to steal the Championship Trophy has reached a successful conclusion thanks to people's tips. Read about the guilty parties here. There is a lot happening over on The Skinny, and even more will be coming next week. So, stay tuned and check it out if you have the chance.
