|Wool E. Bull delivers the 2009 Triple A Championship Trophy to the DBAP, April 15, 2010|
Here at WDBB we are more than a bit schizophrenic about the Triple-A Championship game. So let me rant a bit first.
No baseball championship should be decided by a one-game playoff. That just isn’t how baseball should work. To extend that a bit further, by the middle of September many AAA teams have had their best players called up, so the game is often more of a matchup of two AA teams and not a true Triple-A championship. The site selection process is something of crapshoot. The odds are stacked against a home town team hosting the Championship. So, it seems to me that it does not seem to work even as a good television since it’s hard enough to fill the stands for local teams this time of year.
Lastly, the Governors’ Cup ...
is way prettier than the National Championship trophy.
On the other hand …
It isn’t some obscure bunch of lollygaggers up there in Allentown, this is the Durham Bulls! Watching Durham Bulls Baseball is all about watching the Durham Bulls play baseball. So, forgive me if I get off my high horse and root for my team, run some numbers, and comment after the game.
And you bet I’ll be cheering with the rest of the crowd if Wool E. brings the trophy back next April.
