Called upon to pitch the 9th for Toronto tonight, against the Yankees.

Faced 3 batters, got a ground out and 2 Ks.

I didn’t catch to what team, but saw the end of the scroll on ESPN that Aaron has been traded. I believe from what I saw, he and a teammate were traded in the same deal.

Would Aaron be the first Tulanian to become a Phillie? :-D

I'm glad he's there to balance off Nola, although I have to admit, as a Phillie fan, I cheer for Nola every time he pitches and try to forget his background in BR.

Me too, Cheerleader. Me too.

Truth be told, I never expected this season. Especially after the Eagles’ unlikely run.

I tell folks it’s because my 90 YO father-in-law and lifelong Philadelphia sports nut (snuck into Schibe Park and Franklin Field as a kid) passed late last year. He is smiling somewhere.

Yeah, I'm starting to believe. Loved the Red Sox series...great pitching and but for Herrara's error in center field, we would have won both of them. I have even broken down and gotten MLB streaming and I watch most of the games...drives my wife nuts.

Loup has really stuck around for a while in the big leagues. It’s been a while since there was a Tulane guy that stuck around for this long in the MLB

Especially given he did nothing special at Tulane. There was another reliever whose name eludes me at moment that wasn’t great in college but played some with Yankees. Good thing they didn’t play for our current coach or we’d have to hear a rant about how he wastes talent.

Edit: Preston Claiborne is who I was thinking of.

Oh, so you want to turn it in to one of those threads?

Preston Claiborne actually had a brilliant freshman year at Tulane. Unfortunately he was never abled to duplicate it. If you recall his father passed away from a stroke during his sophomore season. That was probably pretty hard on him.

As for Loup, he’s essentially a lefty specialist. I’m sure he’d have been more successful at Tulane if that was his role but we needed more than that.
