I miss Joe Crede. I like Youk, but imagine where this team would be with a healthy Joe Crede in the lineup!
It breaks your heart. It is designed to break your heart. The game begins in the spring, when everything else begins again, and it blossoms in the summer, filling the afternoons and evenings, and then as soon as the chill rains come, it stops and leaves you to face the fall alone. - A.
