    Dave Smith RIP

    I've been to dinner at Jimmy Buffet's house, and I've eaten it at a homeless shelter. And there's great joy and harrowing terror to be found in both places.

    I'm sorry to hear about this. He was a good reliever during much of the 80's and seems to have been a very good person.

    Sad to hear about this. I thought he was way overrated as a closer but you hate hearing about someone dying so young.

    I have a theory that the tradition of burials developed because so many people like to get in a little dig once a person dies.

    I have a theory that burials are based in superstition.

    So long Dave.

    I seem to remember him being lights-out against some very lackluster Reds teams.

    He must have been doing something right, as he was the Astros career leader in relief appearances.

    Also a former Charleston Charlies starter. I remember seeing him pitch a gem a Watt Powell back in the day.

    “He’s gone. My tears are the rain,” (Tim) Flannery, the San Francisco Giants third base coach, told The Associated Press.

    I think they mixed up a quote from Yoko Ono.
    The widow is gathering nettles for her children's dinner; a perfumed seigneur, delicately lounging in the Oeil de Boeuf, hath an alchemy whereby he will extract the third nettle and call it rent. ~ Carlyle
