Well, Jr did it and thus ruined my plans for an ill-timed but absolutely unavoidable trip to Cincinnati this week. I’m happy for him. My hope is that he can still cobble together enough seasons to at least pass Mays at 660, or even sniff 700 HRs. It probably won’t be with the Reds, but I hope it happens anyway.

I’m not the only one who hates the comportment of the Cub fans. Reds announcer Marty Brennamen’s wikkipedia page is hilarious. Scroll down and read the quotes under “Controversies”. He’s dead right.

Sam Perkins is back. It’s funny; I was just thinking about him the other day. Now he’s going babysit the Pacers players.

Here’s another Griffey celebration.
