Also, I went back to Barry Newberg’s Mooyah Burgers yesterday. Their burgers are still great, plus now their fries are much better than they were when they first opened. They’re crispier and have more seasoning now.

Results of last week’s poll:
Question: Who do you think will show the biggest improvement the rest of the year off of my Going Up list?
Yankees – 61%
Phillies – 17%
Padres – 11%
Rangers – 6%
Blue Jays – 6%
Mets – 0%
Reds – 0%

Come back next week for my May Awards.
