Grass-Roots Orlando Group Mobilizes

The far-fetched MLB-to-Orlando effort has introduced a new website. Former Congressional candidate, Armando Gutierrez, thinks he can help lure the Rays or another team to the nation's top tourist city...but if you remember back to January, several teams laughed at the notion that deals were already in the works.

It's great Gutierrez wants to be proactive, but he named his group "Bases Loaded Orlando," which implies the "team" is close to scoring. However, as far as Orlando is from ever getting major-league baseball, his group would have been better titled "Bases Empty Orlando."

The site also features my favorite movie misquote, "If you build it, they will come." The correct quote is, "If you build it, he will come."
