Anyone could have “informed” us of this non-news.

Love what McKenry has done though.  At the very least, Fort is a great stop-gap for Tony Sanchez.  That is, if Sanchez can start hitting again.  Lousy Weiters pick.

If Meek returns to 2010-Meek, we’ll only have to worry about one inning.

This is obviously a big reason why we are looking to upgrade.  Heath Bell’s slide definitely moves him atop my wishlist.  Just sayin’.

YOU JINXED US!!
