Purke tweeted that he is flying first class. LAC?
no mention about whether the team is paying for it or whether they are keeping the frequent flyer mileage.

Dallas is an American Airlines hub.

In fact I have a direct flight from London to Dallas on Sunday.

He lives in Houston, yo. Continental - direct flights to all 3 DC airports.

Purke sounds like he has the classic Rizzo make-up, what a great kid!

we listened to him on the radio on the pre-game interview, he sounds way more mature than his years.

Purke apparently wears 47 in honor of his idol, Tom Glavine.

From the random info file ...

Zimmermann wears 27, Strasburg 37, and Purke 47.

he mentioned that he's modeling himself after Hamels and Kershaw.  Strangely he didn't mention Detwiler and Lannan.

Hitters will be asking "What's in the box???" everytime they have to face that trio!

Just saw his interview during the game last night (had to work the late shift). He seems like a good kid. I think he seemed a little nervous talking with Bob and FP.

Offbeat note: Who else came from TCU? Sammy Baugh, a famous arm.

And LaDainian Tomlinson. He has a pretty decent arm for a rb...

I loathe TCU but I can overlook that for a great kid like Purke.
