Everyone's favorite reliever turned machete wielding attempted murderer is back on the open market after 7.5 years in a Venezuela jail.  Ugueth Urbina, who last pitched in the Majors with the Phillies back in 2005, is already back on the mound after his stint in prison, currently hurling bullets for the Lions of Caracas.  Oogie wishes to return to Major League Baseball, and given his past success, the fact that he's hitting 90 mph on the radar gun, and amazingly only 38 years old after 7 seasons away from the game, he'll likely get a minor league contract offer from somebody.Over 11 seasons with the Expos, Red Sox, Rangers, Marlins, Tigers, and Phillies he appeared in 583 games, saving 237 of them, with a 3.45 ERA, 1.21 WHIP, and struck out 10.5 batters per 9 innings.C'mon Amaro and give a guy a second chance.  Just make sure to hide the butter knife for the post-game spread if Michael Young boots a ball to cost him a run.____________________________________________________New Year's Eve Brew of Choice:Weyerbacher- Tiny.  If you're looking for the perfect combination of taste, warmth, and strength in your New Year's Eve beer, then look no further than Tiny, a Russian Imperial Stout with Belgian yeast.  It weighs in with a powerful 11.8% ABV that will be sure to warm your body and make you a jolly happy ol' soul.  The malt complexity is a brilliant arrangement of bitter coffee and velvety chocolate.  The subtle waft of vanilla beckons you in above the alcohol nose.  It pours motor oil black with a thin cocoa head that remains throughout.  This is a sipper.  Try it straight from the fridge and at room temperature to experience the differences on your palate.  Like many huge men nicknamed "Tiny", this too is an oxymoron for this beer giant.Drink and be merry.RateBeer.com- 98 out of 100
