The Drought is Over!

The Phillies just signed Cliff Lee - and that's adorable.
The Red Sox just signed Carl Crawford - but who is really afraid of a sock?

Here's what the baseball community is talking about this morning. (and when I say "baseball community" I don't mean ESPN or those local fellas who wouldn't know an infield fly rule from a balk...I mean the real baseball people)

The Pittsburgh Pirates (maybe you remember the 1979 World Series of Baseball!?!?) just signed Mr. Lyle Overbay!

Yup.  You read it here first young people.

The Pittsburgh Pirates are now in possesion of a first baseman who hit 20 home runs last year.  Oh yeah...and that's not all.  He also just happened to hit .243 and stole a base.

He knows what he wants and he takes it.  He wanted to steal that base, and you know what?  He did it.

In 1979 Pittsburgh had Willie Stargell at the first base....but look out Willie, here comes Lyle!


Oh yeah, I said "we".  You should know that I'm a part of the Pirates organization and WE are family...
