No doubt. Manfra was terrible at that, and at describing any play where something unusual happened. Nice guy, but I don’t miss his PBP. He was solid doing color and had a good rapport with Joe Angel that I enjoyed.
I believe the ban was for an ADHD medicine that he had previously been approved for, that MLB changed their policy.
Are there other signs of Steroid use, like anger management, mood swings, etc?
What exactly did Elias and Sig do in Houston? Please explain.
Yeah the Pirates had a brief renaissance that ended up being nothing. It's weird given they beat us twice in the WS but the Pirates are actually the closest I have to a NL team- long story but they haven't won a playoff series since they beat us in '79 I want to say. Because remember when they lost to the Reds in the 90 ALCS and later the Braves in the 91/92, that was before the Wild Card.
