    I thought David Eckstein didn't drink



    guess he does
    How, then, are those people of the future—who are taking steroids every day—going to look back on baseball players who used steroids? They're going to look back on them as pioneers. They're going to look back at it and say "So what?" - Bill James, Cooperstown and the 'Roids

    I don't like that sawed-off runt for some reason. Probably because people think he is actually good due to the scrappiness factor.

    I didn't know David Eckstein was old enough to drink.
    My dad got to enjoy 3 Reds World Championships by the time he was my age. So far, I've only gotten to enjoy one. Step it up Redlegs!

    I imagine David Eckstein would get drunk if you had a Budweiser and breathed near him.

    Surely after having tequila, he is hospitalized.

    Also, this picture kind of makes me think better of him.

    His family has major kideny issues in their history.

    http://www.post-gazette.com/pg/04272/386732.stm

    His two sisters, Susan and Christine, and one of his two brothers, Ken, had to have extensive dialysis and eventually have kidney transplants. Eckstein's mother, Pat, donated one of her kidneys to Susan.

    Now, Eckstein's father, Whitey, needs a transplant. Of the seven family members, only David and his brother Rick have been untouched by kidney disease. Genetic factors can contribute to kidney disease, although the Ecksteins present an unusual case.

    Speaking of ICU.

    Did you know that former skier, Picabo Street (pronounced Pee-ka-boo) is now a nurse working in a hospital? They had to move her from her first job answering the telephone. She would answer it like this: Picabo, ICU.

    They got alot of complaints.
    Who's on first?

    I don't have a problem with beer in the clubhouse, however there is no place for hard liquor in professional sports. Nice image for the young kids. You stay classy Eckstein. I guess he lost his spot as the spokesmen for the American Kidney Foundation.
    Not this year...maybe a Wild Card
