"This isn’t stats vs scouts - this is stats and scouts working together, building an organization that blends the best of both worlds. This is the blueprint for how a baseball organization should be run. And, whether the baseball men of the 20th century like it or not, this is where baseball is going."---Dave Cameron, U.S.S. Mariner
Second best Sabbath lead singer and best Rainbow lead singer. And his solo stuff is great too. He had the quintessential Heavy Metal voice. Even better live than on his albums. Very sad day. RIP

Small market fan... always hoping, but never expecting.
He's just a Rainbow in the Dark. RIP Ronnie

Let's make some noise!
Lift my spirit higher
Someones screaming my name
Come and make me holy again
Im the man on the silver mountain
