    We've been wondering that ourselves, Gammons

    Peter Gammons's first column on return from his recovery from his brain aneurysm begins as follows:

    The first clue that my cell towers were intact came right around the trading deadline, approximately a month after my aneurysm. By that time, I had been transferred from the Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston to the Rehabilitation Hospital of the Cape and the Islands. I was perusing the morning box scores in the Cape Cod Times when I brusquely asked my nurse, "Linda, how did Austin Kearns get to the Nationals?"

    And we, of course, have nothing like his excuse for not knowing the answer to this question.

    In all seriousness, I am, for obvious reasons, not a Gammons fan, but he's a good sportswriter and a stand-up guy and it is good to see him back.

    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    I must admit, he made me tear up at the end there. It's good to have him back.

    I'm glad he is well and ESPN needs him. He is wrong a lot more than most people realize, but at least there is logic in some of the things he says. Unlike most of the other guys they have had in the "Analyst" role.

    Speak for yourself. I have some answers, but why beat a dead horse?

    Small market fan... always hoping, but never expecting.
