Greeting for the William Penn
I'm in Pittsburgh my American Express card is in St. Louis. Left at Landry's Seafood. It's been safely destroyed and new one is on the way. Don't mention that I left to my wife. She tends to get on me about not leaving my wallet out so I remember card. I did that last night and still left the card.
Anyway, that's not why you called.
No word on any Reds' moves. I really wouldn't be surprised either way. Some of the posters to the blog made a valid point: The relievers are running up a ton of innings. Might be worthwhile to go with an extra arm for a while. That would mean optioning Norris Hopper back to Louisville and going with a short bench, which might not be a good idea given Ken Griffey Jr.'s status.
Heard this line on the William Penn Hotel, where we're staying Pittsburgh: "It's so old I think the guy is named after the hotel." Don't know who said it, but I like it.
