    Austin Kearns, Manchild

    On the night Roger Clemens's mother passed away, he pitched a one run game, reportedly what she would have desired. What a man!
    Then we have the manchild Austin Kearns. Gone for the 2nd day in a row. Reportedly to attend to "personal matters" in Lexington.
    Personal matters.
    A few months ago the out-of-shape manchild was demoted to the minor leagues. League rules dictate that he had 72 hours to report for duty.
    The manchild sat home in Lexington the entire 72 hours rather than start the arduous journey to Louisville to begin his reconditioning process. A reconditioning process that his competitors completed last winter. What a man.
    One wonders what the gravity of the "personal matters" issue that forced him to miss two games at the end of such a disappointing season.
    A season he is now hitting a blistering .245.
    We are Reds fans. We are used to disappointment. We are used to #1 draft choices flaming out.
    Austin, you had such promise. Providence gave you the perfect baseball body and tools. Rest in Peace, while we mourn another failure.
