A couple of years after the Cy Young?? Wasn't that about when he started doing a 5K walk around the mound for charity after every pitch because it took that long for his arm to stop hurting?

Are you sure his having to suddenly yank his arm back did not cause a muscle pull?

Naaaaa. Great job!

Good story! I wish you had gone over and introduced yourself while the memory was still fresh for him. That could have been a fun and/or interesting encounter.


A good day for a Cubs fan...

1. We kick the Turdinals butts 7-0!

2. Ryno finally gets his managing gig (albeit with the Phillies)!

A bad day for Charlie Manuel, though. I guess winning 5 consecutive division titles and a World Series in 9 years was not good enough?

Good luck, Ryno...we'll see you in the playoffs one day!

BTW, this is not the first time (or the last) that a successful 69 year-old gets canned and replaced by a hot prospect who's 15 years younger!

That's life, I guess...

Hi Rich!
Yeah, he was never one to speed up the pace of a game, was he?
And honestly, had I said anything to him he probably would have said, "What are you talking about?"

Yeah, I'm shocked at the Manuel firing.
Just an odd time during a season to do that.
Lets see if the Cubs can win this series today, though.
That would truly make my weekend.
