Have you ever considered getting a block of tickets to games in Lowell, Pawtucket or Portland (or in NH when the sea dogs are in Manchester)? A group rental at the Fisher Cats games with one or more of the guys talking about how they do scouting, then watching the game and talking about it with the experts might be an experience people on here would enjoy and pay for.

Interesting thought. We used to do a meet-up at Futures at Fenway. I think it'd be more of a social thing than a scouting thing, because we wouldn't be bringing a big contingent behind the plate.
The other thing is that we'd basically be scalping the tickets, and I'm not sure how kosher that is, although we're doing a similar thing for a fundraiser for a legal aid organization I work with in DC (anyone in DC who wants to go to a Nats game, have a pregame reception, and support legall aid in DC, hit me up!). Might be something worth looking into next year. Thanks for the idea!
"We really don't need the whole commercial break/warm-up routine every time a new reliever comes into the game. It certainly made sense in 1884 when they only switched pitchers when the starter was attacked by pickaxe or caught consumption, and no reliever was warming up because he was busy gambling and drinking." - JD
