    Well.. At least we have a top notch Broadcasting Team.

    Who knows what Dick Pole's going to do for the Red's. If he makes the starters dig him then it is safe to say they are smokin on the Pole
    2006 Redzone mock Draftee's- 1(st) Daniel Bard(redsox), 1(st sup)( Jordan Walden (Angels), 2(nd) rd.- Zach Britton(Orioles), 3(rd) Blair Erickson(Cardinals), 3(rd) Tim Norton( Yankees),(cuz its a Tim Hortons thing

    Pain heals. Chicks dig scars. Glory... lasts forever.

    I hear Dick Pole has already requested his uniform number.

    He wants 9 1/2.

    You sure he doesn't want 00??

    Won't be long now when the Viagara ads will be on the outfield walls. Any bit of luck and those ads would be located in the "Power Alleys"

    Some people play baseball. Baseball plays Jay Bruce.

    IIRC, Dick Pole was reputed to have a pretty mean spitter.

    As we are all using our cerebral resources to become amateur comedians, we are losing sight of an interesting trivial tidbit about Dick Pole. He had an infinite ERA in the 1975 World Series against the Reds. He walked Bench and Perez in the eighth inning of Game 5 (his only WS appearance), and he did not retire a batter. Bench scored on a sac fly by Concepcion.

    That means that Dick Pole's WHIP is infinite as well, does it not?

    Dick Pole's infinite whip.

    Sounds like something out of Puffy's dvd collection.

    Yes but while his WHIP is infinite he can't finish what he starts.

    Maybe Dick Pole was forced into the a situation where it was impossible for him to be effective?

    Even Puffy would admit those stats are based on a small sample size. :

    I wouldn't know anything about something like that. And neither does anyone else on this board.
