Just read this on ESPN. Wish I read this article before I grabbed him last year. He sounds like an a-hole.

Did anybody ever email him a copy of that thread?
That has to be an all time classic. :-b

If there was ever a HOF for cafe threads, that one gets in on the first ballot.

I love the deal for the Rangers....they didn't need Nivar anyways, so might as well take a gamble on Riley.

No wonder he can't pitch. He's obviously stoned!

Ah, that thread was hilarious. It was like the single most influential thread in the history of the Cafe. It was 12 pages in a matter of 2 hours, and everyone was pumped up for his start. He was the most picked up on Yahoo and other sites. He then proceeds to get shelled. Again, and again. He is then the most dropped player on Yahoo. :-D The best part is the thread was created by a guest when they were still allowed to post, so we will never know who started that accursed thread.
