My wife is heartbroken.
Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98
I notice there is nothing from Ed complaining about the front office doing nothing in reaction to this particular signing.
When people say that I donít know what Iím talking about when it comes to sports or writing, I think: Man, you should see me in the rest of my life.
It's not every team that can sign a guy who is coming off a year with a 1.92 Rc/27.
Worst RC/27 in the 21st century, 150 PA min

I think 6 of those guys have played with the Royals before.
LaRue (if he makes the team that is) will have a big game next year vs the Reds, and 4 threads will be started about how dumb we were to let him go
I should cross the picket line and write for TV. I can usually predict the plot twists as the shows unfold, anyway...
Never overlook the obvious
At the very least it appears the new Cardinals FO understands the importance of defense at the catcher position.
Didn't he lead the world in passed balls at one point?
