    Wikipedia

    Just had an interesting experience there...

    Sometimes I'll just go and hit the random article button 20 or 30 times just to see what/who pops up and try to get my learn on. I'll be lucky to recognize 1 item that comes up due to the vast number of pages on wikipedia well tonight guess what comes up....

    I just found that someone took out the nickname Country Kepp that I put on Keppinger's wikipedia page sometime back. Boooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    That was pretty good.
    If you can't build a winning team with that core a fire-sale isn't the solution. Selling the franchise, moving them to Nashville and converting GABP into a used car lot is.

    Ah, the old Noochie, Gookie, Pokey, Casey infield dream....

    Good Times.


    Poor Gookie's gonna celebrate his 29th birthday in the Phillies AAA affiliate still trying to crack that elusive .300+ OBP.

    Re: Wikipedia

    I saw Scott Scudder's page a couple of weeks ago. Wikipedia hinted, oh heck it came right out and said that Scudder was known as a ladies man. Scott Scudder? Anyone got any info?
    ...the 2-2 to Woodsen and here it comes...and it is swung on and missed! And Tom Browning has pitched a perfect game! Twenty-seven outs in a row, and he is being mobbed by his teammates, just to the thirdbase side of the mound.

    Perhaps you misread. Are you sure it didn't say he was known as a lady, man?
