Yea, I heard, actually read that Sac was taking a beating, I think injury wise. Now with Harden down and Etherton up, need to reload. Did we just buy Ryan Glynn from Toronto too?

Sparks is good for a couple of months in the majors. Then everyone realizes that his knuckleball is hittable, at which time his era blows up and he gets sent back down. Happens just about every year with some team.

He saved our bacon in Boston two years ago, if the soon-to-be-traitor Foulke didn't give up the game.

BB seems to love Sparky Boy. I like him, although he's a little streaky compared to Wakefield. I am fascinated with knuckleballers, as you know. I have tried throwing knuckleballs a couple of times, with no sucess whatsoever.

Sparky's got 2 types of knucklers, and his slow knuckler (50+ mph) is better than the faster one(70+ mph), but he seems to throw the faster one when he's in a jam, and that's when he gets lit up.
