    Good story. I'll certainly be rooting hard for him to turn it around this year.

    im not religious at all, but the part about getting the call about his dad dying while he was drunk really hit home with me.

    my friend got the same phone call about his little sister dying in a car wreck while we were partying til 5 am

    it really sends u into shock.

    Interesting that the article covers him talking about his one and only game pitching in New York and nothing about all the pitching he's done in Cincinnati.

    I've heard Jesus Christ can't hit a good curveball, but can he teach someone to throw one.

    Great thoughts. Thanks for your insight in stereotyping all Christians as passive nonperformers. Thank you for bringing a negative influence to a positive article and thread about a man who has turned his life around.

    I consider myself well-educated and try to keep up with current events but I honestly have no idea who these people are.
