If only I hadn't played with the nose candy: Darryl Strawberry replay

I'm a sucker for comments... so I'm going to repost this dynasty on here.


Darryl Strawberry was sitting on his sofa in his living room. Trying to watch the 3 A.M. replay of the Yankees-Red Sox game on ESPN, but he couldn't resist...

He had to watch the Girls Gone Wild infomercial on Comedy Central.
"Yeah baby, let me see those boobies..."

All the lights went out.

Green smoke rose out of the ground. And a ghost in chains came out of the carpet. In a booming voice he said, "Darryl, you fool! You had all the talent in the world, how dare you blow it on drugs!"

"Huh?" Darryl said. "Who the hell are yo-"

The ghost pulled Darryl's arms and began to fly in the air. " Look at you Darryl! You look like a fool, the only time you should of been wearing orange is if you played with the Mets or the Orioles! You broke all 6 of your fans hearts!


"Hey Man, I don't need this! I know I messed up!" I should of hit 500 homers but I...wasted...it...all"

Darryl cried like a little girl for 5 minutes.

"I'm giving you a 2nd chance Darryl to use your talent to the fullest"The ghost said.

And that's when Darryl passed out.

When he woke up, he sighed, " It was all just a dream " But when his radio alarm clock played Kurtis Blow's "Basketball" he knew it just might not be a dream. He jumped out of bed and ran through his old apartment he lived in and looked on the calendar It was April 1st 1983. OPENING DAY! And he was in the lineup.






So basically I'm replaying Darryl Strawberry's carrer. Here we go

With an aging Tom Seaver and Mike Torrez, 10 years ago this staff would of been untouchable. But getting old is a bummer.

Along with a old Rusty Staub and a sore in the knees Ron Hodges, the 1983 Mets needed an infusion of youth into their lineup.

Darryl was kind of mediocre in his first month with .247 3HR 11RBI's

The ghost wasn't happy with Darryl. Are you blowing it again Darryl?

"N-n-no, I'm trying, it's just I'm getting used to my old rookie swing."

"That better be the reason Darryl, because if you blow this, I won't give anyone a 2nd chance except for Minnie Minoso"

"NO!!!!!!!" Darryl screamed.


The Mets in the midst of a 5-game losing streak, are now 9-16 and in last place in the NL East.

Well this sucks, Darryl broke is hand and is now out for 7 weeks. He got hurt on 5/29. At the time he was having a homer streak. His new updated stats are: .253 9HR 27RBI


Darryl was sleeping on his "new" king-size bed when he jumped up in fright. "Darryl, You are blowing it more than the first time, WHY?!?!?!?!"

"I-I-I-I Didn't mean to break my hand I just slid into 3rd wrong, and It just broke."

What! You broke your hand, I was just talking about your sub-par average, and striking out so much, you are really blowing it now Darryl

"Oops" Darryl said.



League notes:

Andre Dawson is El Caliente, now if he was Mexican this would be funny. But he is hot he is hitting .363 15HR 50RBI through May 31st.

And this just in: The Mets still suck and are still in last place.

Here Met fans are flocking across town to see the Yankees, who despite popular belief in Flushing do not suck (34-20) 1st in the AL East! Oh by the way all of the Mets fans are Asian

Gah! Strawberry traded to the Great White North!


Yep Darryl got traded to the Blue Jays for Dave Geisel a 5* closer who already had 20 saves.

I simmed through the month where Darryl is on the DL. And he hit very well on his return from the DL, hitting .318 3HR 9RBI after being returing from injury.

One good thing about Darryl being traded is he went from 25 games back in the NL East to 1 game back in the AL East.

"NO! You were supposed to play for a sucky team, why did they trade you to a contending team!The ghost said.

"I'd rather play in New York though, 25 games back or not."

You fool! You don't think you can handle the pressure do you?

Darryl stood up and put out his chest, "Of course I can handle the pressure. I'm a man!"

"Yeah Sure"The Ghost replied.



My own thoughts of this trade: This sucks big time, not only is it a dumb trade but, now I can no longer put in pictures of Strawberry, since he never played with the Blue Jays. Does anyone know how to photoshop very well?

League Notes:
All or nothing:
Mike Schmidt goes up to the plate with one thing on his mind, hitting homers. With a .223 average and 33homers hits a long-ball or nothing approach. One thing that does help his poor average is his excellent eye. He has a .401 OBP to go along with it.

Darryl floated in mediocrity for all of August not being able to hit one homer in August.


"You were made to hit homers Darryl, why aren't you hitting homers? The Ghost boomed

"I just am going through a slump, that's all" Darryl replied.

"Remember Darryl, if you fail, I'm never giving anyone a chance again. And if you don't 500 homers I will consider that failing!"


"Don't worry, I'll get it done." Darryl said.

"You better Darryl, You better

Darryl finished off the season with a .241 17HR 54RBI season


"You did better your first time around Darryl, At this pace you probably won't break 300"

"I'm still young just give me a chance" Darryl replied.


Darryl really slumped the last 2 months of the season. Hitting .222 in August and hitting .209 in Sept./Oct.

He was a good pinch hitter though, connecting for .364 1HR 4RBI

Toronto makes really stupid moves this offseason

By giving a 41-year old a 3-year contract you might be putting yourself in the way of ridicule, but by signing one that had an ERA over 4. You may just be plain stupid. The Blue Jays gave 41-year old Ron Reed a 3-year contract with 1.3 million a year.

To add to the Blue Jays stupidity, they signed 36-year old outfielder Jose Cruz to a 4-year deal worth more than 8 mil a year. Cruz did hit .326 but that being a career high, is not a good sign for the future. He also lost some of his power last season with only 5 homers.
Reed warming up early last season
Cruz with a single back in May

The "Kid" from Texas looks like a good one

Roger Clemens was taken 1st overall by the New York Mets during last Saturday's Free Agent Draft. With a 95 MPH fastball and a Splitter that drops off the table, Clemens could anchor this Mets staff for years to come.
Clemens at a press conference


Lynn joins Foster in New York to make a potent outfield

Fred Lynn, considered the best hitter on the free agent market by many this season, said the desicion came down to a chance to win. " I know the Mets are willing to spend money, and while I'm here, I'm sure we will get the pieces to fit the puzzle. Lynn signed a 5-year contract worth 13.5 million a year.
Lynn during Spring Training last year

Salary Cap Needed?

Many a baseball fan are crying for a salary cap. Those fans that aren't Yankee fans that is. When the Yankees signed Rick Stutcliffe to a 4-year contract that equaled almost 7 million a year to pitch long relief, fans and sportswriters alike both called for the Yankees' brass' heads. " It's not fair that they can take players like Stutcliffe just because another team wants him." said a Red Sox employee, who offered Stutcliffe 5 million a year and a guarenteed spot in the rotation.
Stutcliffe seen here with the Dodgers, became the highest paid long reliever this offseason




"Man there's a lot of stuff going on this year." Darryl said, as he put the paper down.

" Don't look at the paper, worry about yourself Darryl. Quit reading the paper or I can make it where your last name is Kiwi. How would you like that Darryl Kiwi?

"Okay, I'll quit reading the paper."

Darryl might have an achilles heel. He can't hit lefties. At all. With a .107 average against southpaws Darryl is in trouble. He is hitting .306 against righties with all 6 of his homers. He's off to a .244 6HR 26RBI's start.


"Why can't you hit Lefties Darryl? Are you screwing up?"

"NO, of course not, I just can't see the ball very well right now."

"Do you need a pair of glasses? Darryl? Would that help?"

Darryl just walked away.

Darryl is starting to develop some serious power. He has 13 homeruns through the first 2 months. He also has 51 RBI's which is only 3 less than he had all of last year. Strawberry might become a star.



"What do you have to say now, Ghost?" Darryl said.

" That you are hitting .253, and that is below average."

"I just can't do good can I?" Darryl said.

" How about this if you eclipse your homerun total from your first time around, I'll leave. Okay?"

"Deal"



League Notes:
Who's the Best?

Who is the best leadoff hitter in baseball? Is it Ricky Henderson of the Oakland A's? Or is it Tim "Rock" Raines of the Montreal Expos? Henderson who has 33 steals, is the major league leader. He has 5 more than Raines' 28. Henderson also has a .430 OBP connected to his .272 average. Raines has more power, he had 16 homers last season, but only 3 thus far. Raines' average is down from .318 to .270 this year, but is the better hitter out of the 2. We will see at the end of the year who is the best.

Darryl's beginning to heat up and become a force in the batter's box, he also has begun to hit for average this month hitting .278 in June. He now has 21 homers this season, a career high.

"You are starting to do good Darryl. Don't slip up or it will all go away."

"I'm fine man, nothing going to mess me up."

"Don't get too cocky Darryl, or its going to bite you in the ass"

"Lay Off"



League Notes:
"Doctoring" up the League:

19-Year old Dwight "Doc" Gooden is the best strikeout artist in baseball, right now. That's saying a lot for a teenager. With 112 K's in 102.1 IP he's averaging 9.9 K's a game. Taken with the 4th pick in the 1st round. The Twins knew they found something good, when in his debut he tossed 8 scoreless innings, and struck out 13.

I now think its safe to say that Darryl is a bonafide star. He had by far his best month in July hitting .349 7HR 20RBI's and made his first All-star appeareance, striking out while Pinch hitting for George Brett.


"How you like that Ghost? I'm 2nd in the AL in homers, 2nd in RBI's, and 3rd in runs."

"Yeah, but your 1st in strikeouts. And your leading by 20 whiffs. Yeah you sure are great Darryl"

Something's foul in the LA bullpen

Steve Howe the best closer in baseball last season is having a rough go at it this year. After converting 90% of his saves last season and closing out 45 games. He has already blown 10 saves this year, which already doubles his total from last season. That puts his save percentage at 68.8%. His ERA has risen from 2.03 to 5.72. When asked what the problem was, he replied, " I have no idea, but whatever it is I'm sure It's right under my nose."

It looks like Darryl's .349 July might of been a one time thing. His average droppped to .200 in August. He did add 7 homeruns to make his total 35, which leads the American League.


Darryl shoved the paper in the ghosts face, " You see that ghost? 1st in the AL in homers."

"It doesn't matter if you lead the league Darryl, if you hit .200 nobody's going to want you, Darryl, so I'd keep quiet.

Will the "Man of Steal" break 100?

Rickey Henderson hasn't been caught stealing since June, and because of that he now has 91 stolen bases. His average has dropped to .256 because of a terrible August in which he only hit .128. His OBP is still at .411 on the season. He has more than a month to get 9 steals, I wouldn't put my money against him.

Darryl was wore out by the end of the season. He could only manage 3 homers in Sept./Oct. His final total on the year was 38. His average in the last month wasn't any better at .212. He finished 4th in the AL in homers.

The Blue Jays even with 94 wins were still 16 games behind the Yankees who finished with 110 wins.


"See that Ghost? 38 homers. Led the team."

Toronto continues to waste money

The Blue Jays continued to give out contract that don't make sense. By resigning 36-year old reliever Randy Moffit to a 5 year contract, they put themselves in finacial trouble in the near future. Yes Moffitt did save 20 games last year, but with an ERA of well over 4.00. They also resigned 3rd baseman Rance Mullikins to a 9.8 million a year over 4 years. It wouldn't be so bad if Mullikins didn't hit .258 11HR 65 RBI's. If they keep spending all this money they won't be able to resign young star Darryl Strawberry.
Moffitt looks to take back his spot as closer
Mullikins just became VERY rich

Padres draft a dual threat

When the Padres took Jose Canseco with the 2nd pick in the Draft this year, they just might have gotten the next superstar. With unbelievable power and blazing speed, Canseco has the talent for a 40-40 season.
Canseco looks to be the next Willie Mays

Padres lock up the best

San Diego splurged on the best power hitter on the market, and they got him. Dale Murphy signed to a 8-year contract to 13 million a year. " I didn't even now contracts got that long." Murphy said after he dotted his I's and crossed his T's. Murphy hit .291 51HR 112RBI's
Muphy becomes the posterboy for the Padres

Texas gets the top basestealer

Rickey Henderson who stole 119 bases last season joins the Rangers as a Free Agent, after he signed a 3-year contract worth more than 9 million a year. "Rickey know what's best for Rickey" Henderson said when he turned down a higher offer from the Yankees.

Darryl looked like a rookie in the first month of the season. Only managing a .202 average and 3 homers. The Blue Jays are being led by Rance Mullikins and Lloyd Moseby to be tied for 1st with a 16-10 record.

Darryl showed more of his power that he had from last year. But his average was still below .220 on the month. He finished with a .213 6HR 18RBI's.


"Oh good Darryl! You raised your average a little this month. Your doing so good."

"Man, you need to shut up!" and Darryl tried to swing the bat at the ghost. The bat passed through the ghost and hit a wall.

Who'd you rather have?

There are 2 young premier pitchers in baseball right now. Dwight "Doc" Gooden and Roger "The Rocket" Clemens. Gooden who came off of an excellent rookie season of 15-11 with a 3.27 E.R.A. is the better strikeout artist. Clemens who was the rookie of the year in the National League, is the control artist of the two. He is already leading the Majors in wins with 9.
Clemens giving a curtian call for no reason at all.
Gooden working on another strikeout.

Darryl's average is raising slowly but surely. By slowly I mean it has raised from .207 to .215. But by surely, I meant it is raising. At least Darryl has cracked the top 3 in homers on his own team.


"Darryl... are you becoming a flop before you can even get started? Because if you are just tell me."

"I'm doing better each month, just let leave me alone!"

"Oh yeah by September you average might break .230"

My thoughts: Darryl strikes out a lot! But he does walk more than I thought he would, so that takes away some of the sting. 15 stolen bases look good too.


League Notes:
You can't pronouce his name but he sure can save:
Tom Niedenfuer is perhaps the best closer in baseball this year. After spending 4 previous seasons in the bullpen of the Dodgers, Nieddendfle finnaly got a chance to save games. Nedflanders has 18 saves which puts him 3rd in the National League, it isn't his saves that stand out its Nerfootball's ERA of 1.65 which is the 3rd best of all pitchers that qualify in baseball.

Darryl hit .284 this month which was by far his best month of the season. It raised his overall batting average to .229.

"I'm moving on up Ghost, I'm out of my slump. I'll break .250 by the end of the season."

OOOOOHHH... you sure have some lofty goals set for yourself, that's what it's all about Darryl. Setting goals and achieving them. Way to go."

My thoughts: Darryl lost his blue stars over the offseason, and was a 3 star player last month. But know he is a 2 1/2 star player. I don't know where he took a hit in his rating but I'll try to find out



League Notes:
Won't Montreal give Fergie a chance?
Ferguson Jenkins is 3 wins short of 300 this season, but instead of giving Jenkins a chance to become a bonafide Hall of Famer, he is rotting in AAA. Jenkins has yet to make a start this season. He made 10 relief appearences this season. The 42 year old Jenkins threw a no-hitter last season.

Darryl had possibly his best month as a pro hitting .347 9HR 29RBI's. Darryl's stars went back up from 21/2 to 3. Darryl needs 1 more homer and 9 stolen bases to reach 30-30.

Darryl put his legs on the coffee table in his living room, sighed and told the ghost, ".347 this month ghost, told you I'd break .250"

"Oh Darryl, you don't get it do you? You have to put more than 1 or 2 months together to have a good season. You have to be consistent to be a star, and you need to watch out or you'll be a falling one"

Darryl took a nose dive his last month, .206 6HR 20RBI's which was similar to his horrid April and May. His stellar July and awesome August kept his average's head above water.

"Oh boy Darryl, just when I thought you were doing good too. You go off and hit .206. .206!"

"Shut up! Why are you even here?"

"DUH!!! I brought you back in time stupid."

Ripken perhaps could be the all-time best SS?

Cal Ripken Jr. the 25-year old Shortstop for the Baltimore Orioles, had perhaps a breakout season. .338 37HR 133RBI. This is his third straight 100+ RBI season. Ripken is well on his way to a .300 500HR 3000H career.
Ripken is also an excellent defensive shortstop

OFFSEASON RECAP



Toronto actually makes a somewhat smart move
The Blue Jays have ceased to stop spending their money on over-the hill players who were never under the hill to begin with. The new starting catcher for the Blue Jays is Tony Pena. Pena agreed to a 4-year contract worth more than 3.5 million dollars a year. Pena, who played last year for the Pittsburgh Pirates hit .298 with 15HR's.
Pena is now a Blue Jay, where he will fit in wonderfully in Toronto

In a draft full of big boppers Astros decide Magadan is their man
The Astros who were blessed with the #1 pick in a draft stock full of future superstars those of which included Mark McGwire, Barry Bonds, Rafael Palmerio, and Greg Maddux. The Astros apparently believe Dave Magadan's talent is superior to these guys. Magadan plays 1st and will start in A.
Magadan practicing his dumb look

Cleveland has found someone to man the hot corner for many years
Mark McGwire was taken 2nd in the draft Friday, with amazing power potential and a very sharp eye. McGwire has perhaps the potential to eclipse both the single season and all-time homerun record. But only time will tell.
Mark looks to add Major League homers to his wussy college bombs

Willy Mays part deux?
Detroit who were planning on picking either Greg Maddux or Kal Daniels lucked out when the Astros drafted Dave Magadan 1st overall. Because that allowed Barry Bonds to fall down to #3 overall. Barry has basically the same talents as his father Bobby but according to scouts a lot more of it.
Barry with the Alaska Goldpanners when he was kidnapped by the crazy lumberjack coach of the Goldpanners.

Schmidt will go for 500 in Chicago
Mike Schmidt signed with the White Sox for a rich contract of 4-years for 9+ million a year to play 3rd base and lock up a spot in the Hall of Fame. Schmidt who has 472 homers in his career, barring injury should eclipse the holy grail in homers.
Schmidt, who is about to beat the crap of they guy who is taking this picture, will be the cornerstone for the White Sox offense



The 1986 Season begins tommorow!!!!!!!!!

Darryl for the first time in his short 4-year career got off to a good start. .305 8HR 23RBI's. Darryl is actually becoming an excellent overall player.


"Hey Ghost!"

"Yes Darryl"

"How you like them numbers?"

"Oh they are just fantastic Darryl, you are actually doing something right. But I'd be willing to bet you hit below .240 next month"

Darryl didn't quite have the sucess he had in April, but yet he did hit above .240 with a .270 average. He's tied for 2nd in the American League in homers with 18.


"Under .240, eh ghost?"

"Darryl you are just so full of yourself, you are already cooling off. I guarentee this time you will lower than you did this month."

Well, the ghost was right. Darryl only managed to hit a paltry .215 this month. Most months when Darryl doesn't hit homers he at least pads it with 7-10 homers. Not this month. 4. four. IV. That's it.

"Did Darryl lose a bet? Oh man, and you were just so full of it too. Back to your no-hitting ways aren't you Darryl"

"Yeah, so what I did bad. What's your point"

"My point is besides homers, you aren't that good."

Gwynn the contact king

By striking out only 8 times through June 30th, your going to be able to manage some hits. Tony Gwynn who has an average of .350 which is 2nd in the National League behind Tommy Herr by one point. Gwynn also has some speed he stole 20 bases last season. Pitchers probably wouldn't be able to strike Gwynn out if he went to the plate with a coke can.

Darryl traded to St. Louis!!! Switches birds on his jersey


Darryl was picked up by the Cardinals for Ps Clay Christiansen and Brad Lesley. Christiansen is 9-5 with a 2.61ERA and Lesley is a 27-year old reliever in AA. Christiansen is a 4* pitcher. The Cardinals are 49-55 11GB. Darryl now leads St. Louis in homers by 17. Leon Durham is 2nd.

Darryl had another bad month hitting .232 9HR. But at least it seems his power is back.


"Why would Toronto trade me? I was one of their best players."

" Becuase both the Blue Jays front office and me that you are just a flash in the pan and are on your way down."

"No it's not! I'd rather be in St. Louis anyway"

Darryl's first month in St. Louie gave mixed results. With a .242 average and 6 homers, Darryl isn't the next Stan the Man at this pace by any means. The next Joe Torre, perhaps.

"You were middling away in Toronto with no pressure at all on you, now with the big lights of St. Louis you are suffering even more."

Darryl might not even be the next Joe Torre. With a .176 average in September, Darryl's overall average dropped all the way down to .238. A career low.

The Kansas City Royals are the new world champions. With basically no power (leader had 17-Tony Bernazard) in their offense, their sucess relies on speed and pitching. The speed is supplied by Gene Richards (53SB) and Willie McGee (31SB). The pitching is by the obvious Ken Howell (19-1 2.12ERA) and the non-obvious closer turned starter Dan Quisenberry (13-11 3.54ERA). They defeated the Montreal Expos 4-2.

Offseason Recap


St. Louis does nothing of note
The Cardinals signed one player in the offseason, veteran outfielder Derell Thomas to a Minor League Contract. Thomas, 36 is best known for his PH homer to win Game 6, and the 1983 World Series. This will be Thomas' 17th season. He's a career .249 hitter. Thomas will play every position except Catcher this year. He played for the Dodgers last year.
The faceless Derrel Thomas

Hall becomes a Blue Jay
In an effort to replace the power of the traded Darryl Strawberry, the Blue Jays signed Mell Hall to a 6-year deal worth more than 11 million a season. Hall who was last year's NL MVP will team up with last year's AL MVP to hit 3rd & 4th and play Center and Rightfield. Hall hit .300 40HR 123RBI last season.
Little known fact about Hall, he auditioned for the movie RADIO but Cuba Gooding Jr. was picked instead

Proffesional Hitter
Detroit continued on stockpiling on excellent hitting prospects. Last year Barry Bonds and this year 3rd baseman Edgar Martinez. Martinez who will begin in AAA, comes to the proffesional ranks with an excellent eye. He has above-average power potential also.

The REAL Edgar Martinez

A Power hitting 2nd Baseman?
The Seattle Mariners drafted 2nd baseman Ron Gant in the rookie draft last week and they got a rare commodity. A 2nd baseman with legitimate power. Ron Gant is also an excellent fielder with above average range.
Gant hitting a homer in high school

Dave "overpaid" LaPoint
Pittsburgh Pirates signed starting pitcher Dave LaPoint to a 19.5 million dollar a year contract over 7 years. LaPoint who was 12-8 with a 3.03 ERA isn't exactly a Doc Gooden or Roger Clemens. But it is the Pirates money to spend as they wish.
Dave is now considered in his neighborhood the "rich boy"


The 1987 season coming up soon!!!!

Darryl had a ho-hum month in April. His first half of the month was brutal, but he picked up the pace in the 2nd half of the month to bring his average to a .240 clip.

"Oh, Darryl all you can do is hit homers and you are 2nd in the Majors in strikeouts"

"Why won't you just leave me alone?"

Bankhead is a very skinny man

Darryl had a much better month, and that was his best month since joining the Cardinals. He hit .275 7HR 24RBI's plus his OBP% was .373 and he stole 8
bases.




"Did the terrible glare from the arch finally get out of your eyes? Is that why you managed to hit for a respectible average this month?

"No, I'm just gettin out of a slump"

"Oh! A slump? Man it must be just terrible to be in a slump for 4 or 5 years like you were! At least your out of it now.

League Notes:
Early Canidiate for Cy Young?

If the season ended today Dave Stieb, Toronto Blue Jay pitcher would probably be the Cy Young reciepient. With a ERA of 2.62 and a record of 8-2 Stieb is one of the best starting pitchers in the American League. Stieb had a rough season last year but prior to last season he had won at least 12 games for 6 straight seasons.

Darryl reverted back to his April form with an average of .245. HIs power, once again didn't fade in June. He hit 7 homers. He now has 20 this season.


"Darryl, Darryl, Darryl, just when I thought you were about to break out and finally start to live up to all the potential you had you start sucking again"

"I am living up to my potential, I'm hitting more homers than my first time around."

"Darryl, if you want a chance at 500 you have to at least be able to hit over .260. How many Rob Deers' have you seen have long career's"?

League Notes:
A chance for .400

Minnesota Twins outfielder Juan Beniquez could be the next .400 hitter. With a .391 average through June 30th, Beniquez might be the first .400 hitter since Ted Williams did it in 1941 when he hit .406. Beniquez, 37, has a career high average set 2 years ago of .343. His career average is .290.
Beniquez when he was bat boy for the Quetzaltenango Blue Sox of the Guatemalan beisbol league.





*The Guatemalan Beisbol league probably isn't real

Darryl just isn't much of a St. Louis player apparently. He had his worst month of the season with a .224 average. Plus, he only hit 3 homers. His OBP% this month was .400 though.


"Real nice month Darryl, real nice. .224, man! 3 homers?!?

"Did you see how much I walked this month?"

"Yeah, you must be real tired"

League Notes:
16 and counting

Yankee pitcher, Dave Righetti is leading the majors in wins with 16. With a very impressive line of 16-6 with an ERA of 2.73 in 168.0 innings. He might have a shot at 25 wins.
Look what little Davy can do!

This ghost is a real prick. I'd turn to the nose candy If I had him on my case at all times.

I don't believe I failed to mention this... Darryl made an All-Star appearence which was his 2nd. He even hit a homer in the game. But it was all for naught, the NL lost 6-3.
