Metamora should be good one all the dominos fall into place.
I favor capital punishment. But there are alot of cases where I don't think capital punishment applies (parking violations) and cases where it should be applied (murder, child molestation, illegal HS football recruiting).- BirdWatcher

Yeah Reggie, I think the question is, who's going to get second in the MI. Metamora has a ton of talent!!

Is Trent Johnson back? I saw him pitch last year early in the year against Joliet Catholic. He went down late in the game. My understanding is he had Tommy John surgery. Is he going to pitch this year? The kid is a stud and I hope he is able to come back.

From what I have heard, he can be a position player right now. They are bringing him along slowly as far as pitching.
Time you enjoy wasting is not wasted time.

Guerro will be tough to beat. But who is Metamoras #3 pitcher? Lotta suspensions over at Metamora as well to deal with early. I wouldnt count on Johnsons arm at this point,but you can count on his bat as he hits it well. Limestones pitching staff might be right there after Metmora at full strength. Meyers,Rhodes,Peacock,Reid are all pretty solid,but team might struggle to score runs. Washington will score runs this year i believe,but dont know how deep staff is. Pekin will be down again. EP has lefty back i think who was pretty good last year

They also have the Lewis kid that no-hit Washington in the regional finals last year.
