I was thinking about doing something like this the other day because the turnaround really has been remarkable.

I skipped a lot of the minor trades - just core trades.

May track down the draft picks in the future.

saw a snap of shanny with his family from a summer or two ago and he still has a 6 pack at 40 something.

conversely, I think we all know what kind of 6-pack Burkie is most familar with.
