Happy 4th of July! We have just the one Vulture this week…
Happy Canada Day! Yeah, yeah, I know I’m late…
Oh my we have repeat offenders this week! Not one but two. In addition we also have the usual new guys. You know what they say Birds of a Feather poop together. Or something like that. June 13th, Ross Olhendorf of the Cincinnati Reds. Just two weeks ago Ross graced this weekly column with an ungraceful…… Continue reading The Vulture Report: June 20th, 2016
Sorry for the late report. Work has snowballed on me which hasn’t allowed the usual time for creative writing (just a lot of ranting). June 7th, Tony Cingrani of the Cincinnati Reds.

Vultures! Homeruns! Pitchers Hitting! Pitches Pinch Running! Pitcher’s Fielding! Dogs and Cats Living Together! Mass Hysteria!
