Paul Saints have beendoing 15 and 7 on the season as I recordthis in first place all alone a game upit's hard to get excited though becauseI remember what happened last year whenthe team was 27 and 13 after 40 gameshad a seven-game lead in the divisionand at the end of the season we were 48and 52 and 14 games back of first placeso you realize things can change in theblink of an eye you just hope that allthe pieces stay together number one inthe league in pitching number four inbatting average number four and runsscored it's been pretty good to watch sofar but a long long way to go we haven'teven hit the quarter pull just yet butit's been fun to watch it's beenexciting so much so that piece ofhistory perhaps could happen tonight asI record this on Monday our managerGeorge Sammis sits at 999 careermanagerial wins most of those have comein a st. Paul Saints uniform 816 of themto be exact but he has one win away frombecoming the fourth manager by allaccounts that we can find the fourthmanager and independent league historyto reach a thousand wins I have nevermet a guy in my 18 years of doingplay-by-play and I've had a few managersin my time but I've never met a managerthat has had that has wanted to win asbadly or more than George does I realizeall these managers want to win but veryfew if any have I ever met that has thedesire the want and and really it's allhe can think about is winning and if hedoes not win a championship it's it's alost season inhis books and unfortunately for for himand for the st. Paul Saints it's beensince 2004 that that's happened but it'sbeen an enjoyable ride for the last 12years that I've been here too to witnessall the victories I haven't tallied itup yet I'm probably do that before thebroadcast tonight tally up how many ofthe 816 victories here with the Saintsand overall when he gets at number 1000that I have been a part of but it'sclearly more than any other broadcasterthat has been around in any of hisstints whether it be when he got startedin Waterbury or as a couple of years inNew Jersey or now is you know 15 yearshere in st.
