    Nope, I was disappointed early on in the season when he took the better part of a week to report to Louisville. I was disappointed when I saw him in spring training with a big gut. I was disappointed that he hasn't shown much maturity.I'm disappointed in his batting average. And I was disappointed he wasn't in the lineup in Chicago after his noted exploits last year late in the season.

    His father had heart surgery during that time! I don't know about you, but I would rather spend time with my sick father than show up a day early to impress you or Dan freakin' O'Brien. Ask any other Redzoner, and they will tell you the same thing. Believe it or not, some things are most important than the game of baseball.

    I'm begining to think that some of these things that are more important might be named "Garrett"

    I was gonna comment on this supposed to be 'post', but I think WOY, TB, Chip, Barry11, Smith, and the rest of the crue pretty much summed it all up for me. I highly doubt Garrett, that if your Dad was seriously ill, you would spend a half of day with him, and jet off to finnish up your day at work... especially when you didn't have to. Give Austin a break.

    From Marc Lancaster:

    Austin Kearns will be back with the team tonight as the proud father of Aubrey Ryan Kearns, born Tuesday in Lexington. New mother Abby is reportedly doing fine.

    Re: Austin Kearns, Manchild

    Ya know, I rode the "Austin needs to want to play" train. I was solidly behind his demotion. I didn't give a rat's behind that he took 72 hours to report. that 72 is in the CBA. His father was ill then, and now he's a father. Of course he had more important things to do than hit a ball with a stick.

    Didn't Browning leave a playoff game because his wife was in labor?

    How come we weren't consulted when they were picking baby names? We DO have rights, you know!

    I thought Austin was working on moving to 3B this offseason, not THAT!

    Congrats to Poppa Kearns.

    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98
