    Born in Dayton.
    The lowest acceptable payroll amount for ownership to show they are not greedy pigs is 15 million more than they are currently paying. No matter what that currently is.

    The passing got a lot of air time on WOWO out of Fort Wayne.

    The country needed a morale boost. And a select few provided it for us.

    Thanks for your service Mr. Cole and RIP.
    ...and this one belongs to the Reds.
