I heard Buffalo is a great place for a vacation, Buehrle. Lots of outlet stores. ;-D

I picked up Loney as a stop-gap CI in a deep league when Aram went on the DL and I'm not sure I can take him out of my line up even with Aram back. Guy is a line drive machine right now (37%!).

Not the depressing novel version.


I grew up watching that movie and loving the visual of that ending but the novel ending is so much better and true to the story.


SPOILER ALERT (Really if you have not read the The Natural novel you should.)

I totally agree. The novel has a much better end, and is a better tale. Nevertheless, if I was choosing someone for my team, I want the guy who has the Hollywood ending. The novel's ending is not what I would choose for my team.

Anyone watch Bucholz pitch today? Was he still "cheating"? Sure looked like he battled, 116 pitches.

Yeah he almost certainly was, the ball was not moving the same at all.
