Two-fifths of that photo are now on the disabled list. One for the season (Jaime Garcia) and one indefinitely or until the medical staff runs out of elbow injections (Jake Westbrook). Damn you Sports [...]

When I think of John Francis “Jack” Buck (August 21, 1924 – June 18, 2002) and Darryl Andrew Kile (December 2, 1968 – June 22, 2002), words fail me.  My brain works at creating spontaneous thoughts, but the signals that tell the rest of my body how to operate fail after the one that first [...]
