Good Start, But Needs Some Editing

In the Enquirer Reds notebook today, Ryan Freel revealed his own personal motto.

My motto is, 'If it ain't broke or you don't have a tear or something like that, you try to play through it if you can.'

What Have the Mets Got Against Us?

I heard on ESPN that the Mets are running Dave Williams out against the Cardinals tonight. So just when you thought Williams couldn't hurt the Reds anymore, he's suddenly in a position to put them one more half game out of first.

At least he's going against Jason Marquis.

When I went to the Mets site to verify that Williams was, indeed, their intended starter, I noticed the game wrap from yesterday's game, Mets show Cards who's boss. I thought this must surely be homage to my own story with a very similar name, Reds Show Cards 'Who's the Boss?', but I was disappointed that Tony Macelli wasn't mentioned once.
