Good for Bill Lee! He is a unique baseball personality. I loved his quote, "Drug testing? I believe in drug testing. In fact, I've tested lots of them."

Very, very cool to see a guy playing the game for the love of the game. Always enjoyed The Spaceman. Especially when seeing him face Perez.

Wonder if Houston interested. He and Clemens would provide Vet presence.

Besides, Spaceman and Astros is a match that should have been made long ago.

I hope they keep the Verducci effect in deciding on his workload. I would hate for them to burn out a young arm by doing too much too soon.
