Hey, Dallas, Xavier and J.D., Meet us at Stuckey's
Dear Mr. Nelson and Mr. Wade,
It seems to many members of the Farmstros Village that you have a few players stuck in AA Corpus Christi at the moment. With the change in ownership pending and the low attendance at Minute Maid Park, I can't help but wonder if a limited amount of money in the budget for transportation costs is what is preventing a move up the minor league ladder for these prospects. If this is the case, I think I can be of assistance.
Assuming the Oklahoma City team is traveling back to Oklahoma via bus after their game in Memphis this evening, they will be passing within 50 miles of Springdale, Arkansas, where the Corpus Christi club is playing a series with Northwest Arkansas Sunday through Tuesday. With proper coordination, it seems the players in question could meet the RedHawk bus as it passes through Ft. Smith, Arkansas on its westward journey. Perhaps there is an easy to find Stuckey's where the pick-up could take place. I'm fairly confident one of Dallas Keuchel's fans from his college days at the University of Arkansas would be willing to drive.
I hope you find this information helpful. I did some research on a cost-saving plan for promoting any home run hitting first basemen currently in Lancaster to AA; however, the closest the Hooks come to California the rest of the season is Midland, Texas.
