    Birthdays- 8/1

    Reds:

    Kevin Jarvis (42)- Hung arouond the fringes for quite a while, despite a career ERA over 6.

    Pete Mackanin (60)- Current Phillie coach, was 41-39 as Cincy manager in 2007.

    Others:

    Madison Bumgarner (22)- We gave him an early present this weekend, eh?

    Adam Jones (26)

    Gregg Jefferies (44)- Two-time minor league player of the year, made the majors by age 19. Never became the superstar everyone predicted, but had some solid years, especially with the Cardinals.

    George Bamberger- Highly successful as Earl Weaver's pitching coach; somewhat less so as a manager.

    I hate Gregg Jefferies. I lost most of my college beer fund on his rookie cards.

    I saw Jefferies in the Applachian League at Kingsport Tennessee. I thought he would be a star. Like many before him he flamed out once he made the show.

    A few rough starts aside it really is remarkable how well he is pitching in the majors at such a young age!

    Congratulations! Although I'm sorry about the 5:04 am part. Yikes! All 4 of my kids were born in the morning...but after 10am.
    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
