"Even a bad day at the ballpark beats the snot out of most other good days.

Roy Tucker October 2010

"Today was the byproduct of us thinking we can come back from anything." - Joey Votto after blowing a 10-1 lead and holding on for the 12-11 win on 8/25/2010.
Shades of Jimbo and Krivsky. All those two year contracts for fodder really hurt us. Hope the guys that got them were grateful. Ondrusek and Hannahan, you just made a MLB club when no one else wanted you and did pretty much nothing. Typical.
"You only have to bat a thousand in two things; flying and heart transplants. Everything else you can go 4-for-5."
On a minor league deal, absolutely. ML deal with real money...that makes me a bit more concerned.
I will say this, he is a great "lightning in a bottle" option.
