Over at Baseball Analysts (maybe the best baseball blog out there, by the way), I see that Bryan is looking back on the trade that brought Paul Konerko and Dennys Reyes from LA to Cincinnati, in exchange for Jeff Shaw.
I remember where I was when I found out about that trade, as strange as that may sound. I was in an Applebee’s restaurant in Florence, Kentucky.
I can barely remember my wife’s birthday, but I can’t get useless nonsense like that out of my brain. It’s disturbing.
Blame Chad for creating this mess.
