I'm sorry I guess I didn't make myself clear. I was trying to say that with our luck Barry would have a great season AFTER leaving here. I am not wishing bad luck on him ...I am saying that he hasn't had a really good season for a really long time. I don't wish upon Barry Larkin bad luck. I just think that with guys like Austin Kearns, Barry Larkin, and Ken Griffey Jr all on the DL or hurt for much of the past 2 years it has been really hard to have a good season. I would like to have had a healthy season out of Barry like I described.

I remember one time going out to the mound to talk with Bob Gibson. He told me to get back behind the batter, that the only thing I knew about pitching was that it was hard to hit.
