Open Forum (4/7-4/13)

Posted by Dave Fratello on Tuesday, April 7th, 2009 at 5:09am.

Time for another Open Forum thread... your chance to launch new topics, share news, etc.

Baseball-specific notes, on account of Opening Day:

Former MB walkstreet resident Derek Lowe threw 8 shutout innings in his debut Sunday with Atlanta, surrendering 2 hits and no runs. A nice performance, but his house at 204 19th (pictured) remains for sale at $5.2m after almost 7 months. (See "Lowe-ring the Price.") Someone is doing his job, and someone else...

Current MB resident Nomar Garciaparra had no hits in 4 at-bats in his debut for the Oakland A's today, playing down in Anaheim, er, Los Angeles. Meanwhile, his former home (sold last year) at 120 16th (5br/5ba, 4070 sq. ft.) is for sale at $5.795m after being acquired in May 2008 for $5.6m in an off-market sale. (Click here for a brief, narrated virtual tour; not yet on MLS.) Yes, a markup after 1 year.

As always, please use this week's "Open Forum" thread for news clips, off-topic questions & discussions of (virtually) any nature. Keep it clean.
