Well, guess that puts an end to all the crushing homers on good pitches, as well as the not-so-good pitches.  I honestly never believed the man would leave Cletus Nation behind.  No, it wasn’t a good sign for them when he refused to negotiate during the season, and it also wasn’t a good sign when...

Poo-holes, a Cub?
