    Jeff Brantley is worth forgetting, not repeating.

    Agreed. I'd personally like to see Jim Kelch get more time on the air. Of all the secondary guys, I think he does the best job. Although Merker was pretty good last night I thought. You can tell he's not quite comfortable yet, but his insights are usually pretty interesting.

    Speaking of players' insights, anybody else catch Harold Reynolds on the MLB network weds night? He told a story about facing Nolan Ryan that just cracked me up. Reynolds broke up a no-hitter of Ryans (ended up a 1 hitter) and the next day before the game started, Ryan tells Harold "You better not bunt" before the first pitch. Harold was shocked and asking the catcher "was he talking to me?!?". Harold says he stepped in the box and crowded the plate a bit and Ryan immediately flipped him on his backside. Reynolds said he was scared out of his mind. He ended up drawing a walk and eventually scoring. The next day during warmups...Ryan jogged by Reynolds and said "way to be a competetor kid". I love MLB network because of stuff like that.
    2014 predictions:
    99-63 WS champs (Cards take 2nd WC, Mil 3rd, Pit 4th, Chi 5th)
    Bruce/Votto neck and neck MVP race (neither takes it)
    Bailey CYA winner
    Hamilton ROY & GG

    I think I get the story but am confused. Reynolds broke up a no-hitter of Ryans and the next day Ryan was pitching again? Did he break up the no-hitter with a bunt? Sorry I'm a bit slow.

    Oh, sorry. I think it was the next time they faced each other. My bad. The next day thing was when he approached him and said "way to be a competetor".
