The Other Paper:
Marc Rzepczynski has a last name that makes Coach K's sound almost like Smith in comparison, but it lends itself to one of the most appropriate nicknames in sports — "Scrabble."
The 27-year-old St. Louis Cardinals reliever's surname scores a whopping 40 points on a Scrabble board game on its own — even without the triples and doubles and if you allow the fact that it's a proper noun.
One Cards fan got an extra bonus by having the lefthander autograph a logical item at the team's "Winter Warm-Up" — her Cardinals Scrabble board.
The ingenious woman made the most of her $5 fee where fans get player's autographs at a hotel under the Arch.
What comes as a surprise is finding out there was even such a thing as a St. Louis Cardinals Scrabble game.

REST IN PEACE
