It's just amazing what they are doing to develop Dubai. It's actually borderline ridiculous. They are trying to outdo everything that has ever been done.

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey
