    • I like Rod’s version also. I saw him on that tour.

      BTW thanks for mentioning that book. It’s bringing back a lot of memories. Jerry Ruess, Reggie Smith..I’ve been watching some 81 games on youtube also…and the WS again lol.

    • I had a feeling they would not binge on those three…but they did try on Cole. What I don’t understand is they don’t like trading their prospects as you know…and yet they don’t like spending big for free agents. He likes being different.

      An Andrew Friedman quote…”If you’re always rational about every free agent, you will finish third on every free agent.”

    • I can’t blame them for passing on the big 3- a lot of money- i saw talk today about them and madbum.. that would be interesting.

    • I don’t think I had heard that Orlando and Dawn single either- they must have been too busy back then playing those other hits of theirs.. or tying a yellow ribbon around the old oak tree..
