I'm about at the end of my rewrite of the original Portland baseball history I published in 1980. I have a couple of related essays to incorporate, then I'll have to focus on Merritt Paulson, the young heir to his father's Goldman-Sachs legacy.
You know, the Bush family's lapdog. Or was it the other way around?
He's the nephew of Pat Paulsen, the one-time perennial presidential candidate (I kid).
Merritt is the guy who sold the Beavers out of town when Sam Adams and the crew in city hall couldn't create a new deal for a Portland baseball stadium.
Rah, rah, Timbers. Go, you guys.
