Surprisingly as it might seem, Carl and I discussed his "new" mechanics approach about six years ago through a number of private e-mail exchanges. But the idea of starting in "B" with no one on is not something my association will condone.

I was also part of that (and I miss it dearly, T!) and with all due respect it was a bad idea then, and it is just as bad now.

JK:

Have you tried it? MTD, Jr., and I use it during the summer league ball and we will even use it during the spring for FR games. It works fine.

I sent Carl a message asking for his permission to post the e-mail he sent me few years ago that talks about the pros and cons of using his mechanics. I'll post it as soon as he gives me the go ahead.

Tim.

Ok,

I have to ask:

Why would anyone use this much energy on such an unimportant issue or person?

WOW! Stalkers are just so weird.
