The Mets made the requisite "playoff team needing a spare part" deal by acquiring Jeff Conine from the Reds in exchange for A-level infielders Jose Castro and Sean Henry. Jorge Cantu will get called up by the Reds to take Conine's roster spot. Conine went to UCLA the same time I did. And he was drafted in the 58th round by the Royals in 1987. We all thought that Shane Mack would have the longer career. We were not correct.

The White Sox, trying to escape the cellar in the AL Central, have signed Mike Myers. I'm sure that will help a lot.

Mark Redman pitched for Tulsa tonight, which is the Rockies AA affiliate. This year he has pitched for Atlanta (0-4, 11.63), Richmond (Atlanta AAA, 1-0, 0.00), Oklahoma (Texas AAA, 2-4, 5.34), and Syracuse (Toronto AAA, 0-2, 5.12). Redman has given up 5 hits, including 2 homers, and 5 runs in 5 innings for Tulsa tonight against Midland.

These are desperate times.

And yet Joe Kennedy, who had a 4.03 ERA in his 16 starts this year, is currently unemployed. I don't really get it.

I remember when Torey Lovullo was the best player evah at UCLA and was a cinch for major league stardom.

I remember when Mike Magnante came up with UCLA and my brother will back me up on this, but UCLA coach Gary Adams didn't even know his name correctly.
