Elsewhere In The NL Central…

Looks like what the Chicago Cubs have done for pitching injuries (see Exhibits A and B), the St. Louis Cardinals continue to do for substance abuse (see Exhibits A, B, and C). But Rick Ankiel did hit a home run.

that's cold Cubnut, funny, but cold.

Spezio always struck me as looking more like a member of the band Metallica than a member of a band of baseball players. Maybe Spezio and Neifi can now get together and compare notes, now that Neifi has been caught for a third time. I think he is out for 80 games now. It might as well be forever. I think he surely has to be done at this point. At least unless and until Dusty finds another job as a manager. I am sure that Neifi will be his starting shortstop.

Wow, hadn't even heard about that. Guess they'll only be celebrating Scott Spiezio Day on the east side of Joliet this year, eh?

But, as Deadspin points out, Spiezio is an Illinois alum, so he has that going for him.

Yea... I am going to say that making fun of people with substance abuse problems is not very funny.

Especially one that died because of it.

Spezio was a regular at KAMS the famous Champaign watering hole where I spent too many nights.

KAMS, home of the drinking Illini!!!!

Was that to me?

Sorry that is bothers you that I don't find it funny. Substance abuse really isn't a funny thing, which should be pretty obvious considering one of the links was about a player dying. I fail to see the humor.

Dave,

The point of the post was that this seems to be a recurrent problem in the Cardinals organization, starting at the top. As for "making fun of people," LaRussa and Hancock--Hancock in particular, who could well have killed the driver of the tow truck he barreled into--chose to put innocent people's lives at risk when they got behind the wheel.

Pardon my insensitivity.

Will Ohman talks to Mike North, answers the tough questions.

as we discovered in Parachat last night, I'm morally bankrupt, that must be why I chuckled.

there's another post up btw, mostly site news though.

I don't feel like listening, can we get a summary?

3 guys is a recurrent problem?

And... did they choose to put innocent people's lives at risk? Sure... but that is not the point.

It is pretty simple. Substance abuse is not a funny thing.

Ohman... "if I could get people out at the major league level, I would." Thanks Will.

Ohman... "I kept the pain with the doctors and I."

i.e. The team did not know...

"I was not going to get any worse as much as it just was going to be painful."

He said it had/has been painful for 3 months.

Yep, three guys in five and a half months is a recurrent problem.

Sorry... that should say 2 months, not 3 months.

IMHO: Absolutely anything has the potential to be funny to someone. Absolutely nothing has the potential to be funny to everyone.

Except footballs to the groin, which is universal.

That is fair.

Chad, a fellow U of IL grad? Well, I-L-L to you sir.

Though I'm happy to say I never set foot in Kam's.

I-N-I !!!!

I used to work at the Clybourne. WHEN IT OPENED! It's been a many moon since I was a fixture on Daniels street.

I'm gonna take it that you were not in a fraternity.

And os-kee-wow-wow to both of you.

What does Trans know about humor, he didn't appreciate "The Cubs are trying to keep up withe Jones." Phillistine.

Who's Phil Stine?
