Well, all the baseball talent in the family is in one kid.

-Dad...I'm RIGHT HERE.

-Well, Mike...am I wrong?
- (long pause) Damn it.

For the last two years, I've kept the family sports news off this blog. However, at this time, I think an exception can be made. I'd like to extend a YCS congratulations to my brother Dave (pictured at right with a monkey on his head), who was selected in the 21st Round of Major League Baseball's First-Year Player Draft by the Los Angeles Dodgers.

No word yet on whether the hard-throwing right-hander from Burr Ridge will sign with the Dodgers for next season or return to SLU for his senior year.

That's Awesome! Congrats!

Vinnie 5:03 PM  

Ditto.

My ill-informed, irresponsible advice: Sign! Sign! Sign!

Zuch 10:55 PM  

Congrats man, that's a hell of an accomplishment for your bro and your family. Either way your brother has a good choice, getting a degree from a solid Jesuit school or starting his career and hopefully having a chance to start the climb through a major league farm system.

Outstanding news, and congrats. He looks like Matt Murton.

Vinnie 10:54 AM  

Wow... I guess all redheads look the same to you, huh Paul? What a blatantly hairist comment.

If you ask me, he looks exactly like Sherman from Rocky and Bullwinkle. Or maybe Carol Burnett.

Matt 4:17 PM  

Awesome news. What year is he in in school? And, have you weaseled a way into being his agent yet?

Matt 4:18 PM  

Nevermind, I'm retarded, he's a junior this year as you mentioned in the post. My less irresponsible advice - don't sign!

Hold out for more money!

The next Paul LoDuca!
