Yes, and there are also known unknown unknowns--the ones we know that we don't know that we don't know about. And don't ever forget the unknown known knowns--the ones we don't know that we know we know, but someone knows them, we just don't know them because those who are in the known knows that not all of the known knowns can be known to all of the unknowns.

No one was more shocked by this than me. My Rangers actually made a good contract signing? 8-o I'm scared of what will happen next. Maybe a pitcher with a sub 4 era. :-o

:-D

I read somewhere that Blalock signed that contract against the wishes of his agent. Just thought I'd throw that out there.
