Marc has some quotes from Claussen if you're into reading the unconquerable spirit that lives on in even those who should be feeling pretty conquered.
It's true that Claussen failed to live up to his high expectations last season. Coming out of spring training, he predicted that the Reds starters would be going 7-innings deep, which was true of a couple of them. Not him of course, but a couple of them.
What I'll miss most about Claussen is the relentless pickle jokes Bellyscratcher loved to make at his expense. Maybe the Cardinals will pick him up. I bet she would relish that.
