    It was a cold rainy day playing softball and Roy was quite the CF flyhawk who could go get them pretty good. I did my normal warm up of a few lob throws and that was it. In the early innings. I took a long run back, made a nice running catch, pivoted, planted, and tried to throw out a guy taking base and WHAM, I thought my arm was going to fall off. I finished off the season making one good throw a game because after I did that, I could hardly throw again for 2-3 days. The docs at the time said surgery was meatball thing and couldn't guarantee a recovery so I learned to live with it. My doc now says they could probably fix it up pretty well, but my baseball and softball days are over and I've learned just to live with it like an unwanted nasty neighbor.

    True story. I have always played ball, but no more. Fell when I had to walk up my driveway on a snowy day ( it's WV, you know and my driveway is pretty close to a 10% grade and 180 feet) and now my arm aches all the time. No, I didn't have a specialist look at it and no, I didn't get better, but I'm 64 years old. Time to quit. I hope Beethoven has better luck than me...

    Now you know my age and know I'm a geezer. Please be kind.

    That's why I pitch. You can't really mess up anything throwing slow pitch and any throw you need to make is pretty short.

    Knew you were a geezer by the photo of Harry Nilsson-- yeah - knowing that makes me a geezer too --- but man what a singer he was.

    The older I get - the better I was

    and yes - I hate the Cardinals (Reds fan since 1958)

    Well, you've got to be able to raise the arm high enough to point the way off your lawn.

    I've never understood why people don't post their birthday or age on their public profile. What do they have to hide?

    As a victim of identity theft I believe it is better to have less information floating around than more. You never know what will be the final piece of the puzzle for a criminal (and for me it was something nearly as trivial as sharing my age on the internet).

    When Stanton gets off the D.L. I don't see why it should take all that long for him to be a Red. I'd imagine they'd take a Cingrani, Stephenson, Hamilton and then maybe a Yormon Rodriguez. Thats like 4 top 10 prospects from our orginization and if I'm Florida I'd be happier than a pig in warm mud with that haul. I'm a believer in sacrafising the future for a better chance at a World Series. Stanton is the type of player I'd sell the farm for. It doesn't seem like it should be that difficult to get this done.

    Must be something about 1979. It was around 1979 or 1980 when my arm began hurting, affecting my ability to play centerfield. I could still get the ball but I no loner could throw it as hard. I'm not sure when my rehab will be finished.
