Sometimes what happens in Florida can lead to a long stay in Florida.

I assume he is the ex-MLB catcher

Looks like it.
He was born exactly four days before I was - and on the same day as one Pete Rose.

Thus the similarities end there.

I heard that when Jesse Levis goes fishing, he is in charge of putting the worms on the hooks. In fact, he's known to be a master baiter.

Didn't he tear up Florida one Spring Training (2002?) for the Reds, upsetting many people when he wasn't given another shot at the bigs?

Change the "Y" to a "W" and you've got the right team I think.

He spent a season in Louisville in his early thirties.

Sorry. I just got it.

I have a funny story about Jesse Levis. When I was a batboy for the Cloumbus Clippers, he was in town with the AAA affiliate of a team of which I forget. Anyway, all the players and personell were relaxing watching TV before BP and you hear a "HOLY S@#$!!!" come from the bathroom, then splashing water. Jesse comes out with this small stone (I'd say about the size of one poprock) between his thumb and index finger smiling. When someone asked him what was in his hand, he shouted "I just peed this out!"

The trainer came over to look at it and said "OH MY GOD! Thats a huge calcium deposit! You have got to go to the hospital!" But jesse shrugged it off saying, "I'm over 30, and I'm the backup catcher for a minor league team, I don't need any more bad news."

Maybe now he can get some help and this will not happen again. I can not imagine the Red Sox are too pleased. Jesse, from what I remember, is a bit stand offish. (sp?) Maybe this is a wake up call.:confused:

That kind of thing didn't keep Dick Williams out of the Hall of Fame.

That's the one. The Reds went with Jason LaRue, Corky Miller, and Kelly Stinnett instead.

What did Dick do?IIRC, he was arrested for indecent exposure at a hotel after his managing days were over. Need to keep Mr Happy zipped away when out in public.

I love myself
I want you to love me
When I'm feelin' down
I want you above me
I search myself
I want you to find me
I forget myself
I want you to remind me

Scouting Report

Total pull hitter whose all wrists with his swing. Cant lay off pitches he has no business going after. But he can really get a hold of one due to others mistakes. He really needs to show us something special this spring.
