A little over four years ago, in 2011, I wrote an article (http://www.indyweek.com/indyweek/durham-ce…) for the Indy about the efforts of DCM to open. The initials are the same, but the "C" now stands for "Co-op" instead of its original "Central." This is a subtle but important change in the market's mission as well as its location (it was originally intended to be on Mangum Street). Readers interested in a take on DCM that includes a longer consideration of this change are directed to my blog, where I published further thoughts today: http://sobsey.com/2015/04/03/some-thoughts…
I'm glad the market is open and I hope it succeeds. I'm an owner.
They were ranked no. 3 when the column was written.
I regret that "Kavika52" has responded with such vitriol to this story and has made false statements about my character, actions and intentions. First, the two thefts I allude to in this article were isolated incidents. They took place more than a decade ago. I have never knowingly committed any other thefts before or since, and do not intend to, as the line, "Retailers, you are safe--from me" clearly states. It is wrong to imply, as "Kavika52" does, that I continue to steal. I do not.
Second, my intent was absolutely not to "inspire" or "invite" other people to shoplift, and nowhere in the article do I say that they should do so. Nor was I was trying to "brag" about stealing. I'm not proud of having done it, and I regret not only the crimes but also that this article has inadvertently misled at least one reader to conclude otherwise. My intent in the article was to put a mistake, which I have learned from, into perspective; that's why I was comfortable discussing it in print. I regret that I was unable to write clearly enough to avoid a reader's misunderstanding and subsequent personal attack.
I tweeted the Youkilis news yesterday (I'm @sobsey if you're a Twitter user). He, Dice-K and Matsui should all be playing Thursday -- plus the great Scott Podsednik! Too bad the PawSox no longer have Kevin Millwood, as they did around this time last year. I could go for a little Tim Wakefield, myself, if he's game to throw a few knucksies.
Niemann is going to be out a while -- I"m guessing at least a month. Lueke is up for now, but he's a temporary patch. Unless the Rays want to move Wade Davis back into the starting rotation, they'll need either Cobb or Archer. Cobb has experience and would seem to make the most sense, but the Rays may want to capitalize on Archer's current success and give him his debut so they can see how he deals with the majors.
And thanks for your kind words in the comments during the last home stand. They were much appreciated.
Great to see Jenks/Baseball Heavy guesting over at Chris's blog (which I assume you read as well as this one--if not, go to).
The Rays have optioned Vogt and Brignac to Durham. Move over, Tim Beckham? Nah, not for long, anyway.
Beckham, BTW, was a late scratch from tonight's game. Didn't hear why. The Bulls scored 10 runs and managed to lose by five. Yeesh.
We half take it back: Apparently, instead of Teheran as originally slated, the G-Braves are sending veteran righty Todd Redmond to the mound. Redmond has started a whopping 14 games against the Bulls over the last three seasons, so although we'll miss Teheran, at least we get a comfortably familiar face instead.
"The sport is becoming established as a boutique, niche taste for urban BoBo's, right up there with Wilco, Breaking Bad and microbrews."
Ha ha -- ouch!
