CINCINNATI Sometimes rummaging through a rubbish bin turns up something that looks unusable but turns out to have value.Find an old lamp with a shredded shade, tarnished stand and frayed cord and if you put on a new shade, polish it up and replace the cord and you might have light.

Brewers Let Parra Walk

  (Photo: UPI/Bill Greenblatt)   Brewers lefty Manny Parra was non-tendered by the club today and will become a free agent.  Parra has been a frustrating player to watch because he has some serious talent yet most of the time he goes out to the mound, the whole s**thouse goes up in flames.  I was pulling hard for Parra to rebound this past season, as he came...

Endless Relief?

The first episode of Shut Up, Alan features Brewers reliever Manny Parra as he ‘contributes’ to a humorous debate over the use of relief pitchers versus starting pitchers in baseball games.  Can you imagine what a pitching staff full of Manny Parras would do for the integrity of the game?  As Parra points out in the episode, the goal of playing is to win, so I doubt it would...
